The Discount card

£5 incl. postage

The Colchester Life card is the way to get the best out of shops, bars and businesses around the town.

It gives you the chance to get exclusive deals and offers chosen by the Indies themselves including discounts, free drinks and more. It only costs you £5 and all of the profits go back to supporting and promoting Independents so no one loses.
