About the project
Thurrock 100 is a creative community project that aims to celebrate the stories and places of Thurrock – and share them with the wider world!
In 2018 ‘Thurrock 100 Recipes‘ will explore the area’s rich heritage through food and will take place 7-22 July.
Thurrock 100 is a walking festival started in 2015 by renowned outdoor arts company Kinetika. Thurrock has a rich and unique history and the festival has not only explored it on foot in previous years, but also in story telling and flag making.
Thurrock 100 is a unique cultural project that aims to strengthen the area’s shared identity and foster pride in its heritage, building a programme of physical and creative activity that will contribute to a healthier and happier Thurrock.
With the help and support of local people, so far it has mapped and explored 38 local walks, made 110 silk flags, run a dance programme, published a book of 100 local stories, commissioned a beautiful set of costumes and new theatre performances as well as engaging thousands of people.
2018 sees the project expand into Southend-on-Sea and also takes in Gravesend, Dartford and Barking.
The previous years walk archives can be found here:
