Here at Marygreen Manor we’re lucky enough to have visitors from the length and breadth of the country as well as visitors from across the water too. Essex, Brentwood in particular has been firmly put on the map and not just for its links to the now world famous TOWIE. From fantastic shopping and world-class countryside retreats, not to mention it’s super quick links to London soon to be made even quicker with the rather speedy Crossrail coming and there’s nothing that Brentwood in Essex doesn’t have. So with winter on its way, we thought we’d let you know just what’s on in Essex for those cold crisp days when you’re out and about exploring our beautiful county.


First up, just a stones throw from us here at Marygreen Manor we have the rather fabulous Brentwood Craft and Gift Fair running from the 1st – 2nd November. Taking place at the Brentwood Centre in Doddinghurst, you’ll find everything you could possibly need for a magical Christmas. Surround yourself with some fab festive music as well as the more traditional carols whilst you enjoy the multitude of different foods and free goody bags.


If it feels a little too early to be talking about Christmas then why not give your children some fun in the mean time by taking them to the Little Monsters Halloween Ball that’s being held at the Harold Hill Community Centre on the 1st November. With free entry for children, it’s guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face. From trick or treating, disco dancing, reptile handling and even a fancy dress competition, it’s the perfect way to celebrate Halloween in a town you’re not used to. Just don’t forget to prepare yourselves for being spooked.


If you’re looking for something a little extra special that’s guaranteed to wow whilst you’re staying with us here at the Marygreen then why not give Billericay’s 45th Annual Fireworks Display a try. A quick cab or bus ride away and you’ll be able to experience the skies of Billericay being lit up like you’ve never seen before. Prepare for your night to sparkle as Billericay Round Table celebrates Guy Fawkes Night on Sunday 8th November with the main display beginning at 8pm. This is promising to be the biggest fireworks display Essex will see which is why it’s so eagerly anticipated by residents of Essex every year. Held in the grounds of Lake Meadows Park, the perfect backdrop to a spectacular night of fireworks and bonfires. Don’t forget that Heart FM will be there to introduce some very special guests on the night, but who are they? Well you’ll have to venture along to find out.


A lot of our visitors like to explore a little further and venture further afield, if that sounds like you then why don’t you pop along to see Father Christmas in his Winter Wonderland at Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park in South Woodham Ferrers from the 15th November right through to Christmas eve. You’ll be able to meet Santa’s elves, his reindeer and toy makers along with the big guy himself, Santa of course. Once you’re children have had their meeting with Santa you can even stay for the rest of the day and explore the farm itself. The whole experience lasts 2.5 hours all in all and is the perfect event before a winter warming lunch here in our high-end restaurant.


There are so many reasons to stay here at Marygreen, from the finest dining in Essex with a delicious a la carte menu and an award winning wine list, to the luxury accommodation and beautiful gardens that surround us. This winter, there really is nowhere else to go.
