You are invited to join us for Sunday Brunch and a series of short soap-box shout-outs on why DIVERSITY MATTERS. Hear three-minute mini-talks followed by a chance to chat over drinks and nibbles.

Hosted by Essex Book Festival and Essex Cultural Diversity Project, this event brings together people who want to champion and celebrate diversity in the arts and in our communities, and promote the work they do.

Come along to make new connections, find out more about what’s in your area, promote your own projects, and collectively celebrate diverse voices involved in the arts today.

OPEN MIC: Come along to meet and listen to others – or give your own three-minute mini-talk. Let us know in advance if you’d like a platform to share your work, and if there is a slot available we’ll see if we can fit you in.

Places are limited so please RSVP by signing up at, or emailing

The Transition is located near Chelmsford Train Station, behind ‘Grand Central’, at Fenton Court, City Park West, Chelmsford, CM1 1LW
