T100 2019 – News on dates and locations!

T100 2019 – Welcome to the Kitchen Table 5-21 July

Building on T100 Recipes 2018, we will continue the theme of learning about each other, our stories and our heritage through sharing food and recipes.

Starting and ending in Thurrock, the festival ‘T100 2019 – Welcome to the Kitchen Table’ will take place between 5th and 21st July and will be offered as both a continual walk and a series of 15 walks from Purfleet to Southend, Sheppy to Gravesend, with daily Kitchen Table events and culminating in a finale at Tilbury Cruise Terminal. A programme of creative community workshops in March and June 2019 will produce bespoke tablecloths, Kitchen Table products and a T100 Recipe Book.

We are in the very early stages of planning, but wanted to share how the programme for 2019 is shaping up.  Things might change, but currently the proposed dates and locations are below.  

Call out for volunteer walk leaders – all those interested invited to meeting on 20 Nov 2pm to find out more.

Anyone interested in reccying and leading a walk during the festival is invited to an initial meeting on Tues 20th November at 2pm at the Kinetika Office, 119 Artists’ Studios, High House Production Park, Off Pufleet Bypass, Purfleet RM19 1AS.
