The River Crouch Festival is just under a fortnight away! Make sure you’re signed up to take part in one of the walks. Join artists Ali Pretty and Richard White on a 100 mile walk, over 8 consecutive days, through countryside and coast along the north and south banks of the River Crouch. Ali, Richard and a team of 8 local artists have worked with schools and communities in eight villages, reconnecting communities on either side of the River Crouch.

Ten large scale silk flags have been inspired and created by the people from each village, which will join the 100 mile walk, ending with a crossing of the river from South Woodham Ferrers to Hullbridge for a celebratory Feast Day on Saturday 4 July. Join the walk on foot or online, meet at the ghost crossings and other special places along the way.

The dates, times and locations of the walks are as follows:

We have arranged meeting points along the way, which will feature work created by seven local primary schools and a team of 8 artists.  Come and take part in these celebrations along the way. Please note, we are not expecting you to sign up to the whole 100 miles. You can join us for some of the way, or just welcome and send off the walkers.
