About Tilbury on the Thames Trust:

The Tilbury on the Thames Trust was established in February 2016 bringing together representatives from the Port and the local community to shape the future of the Grade II* Cruise Terminal complex in Tilbury.  Collectively a vision to restore and celebrate the Cruise Terminal complex by combining commercial and community use was approved.  This will focus on developing leisure and education opportunities as a hub for both Tilbury and the wider Thames Estuary.

These workshops form part of a 12-month project being funded by the HLF ‘Resilient Heritage’ grant programme.  This fund is intended to help heritage organisations achieve strategic change to improves the prospects for local heritage.  Having established the Tilbury on the Thames Trust and set a vision for the Tilbury Cruise Terminal complex, the workshops will help us lay the foundations for delivering that vision through conversations that will shape the planning process and future funding efforts.
