About Halstead Town
Halstead is an attractive rural town well worth a day out. It boasts magnificent public gardens, which play host to live music on summer Sunday afternoons, and to other public events during the year. It has a flourishing arts centre in the Empire Theatre, which holds live performance of plays and pantomimes as well as tribute acts, and regularly shows films. The town is well known all over East Anglia for its In Bloom awards, and the town is lucky to be full of flowers all year round, due to the tireless volunteers of Halstead in Bloom. The town also has a flourishing History Society and Museum, which provides fascinating insights into the history of the town, which is home to many buildings built by the industrialist Samuel Courtauld.
