Welcome to the official Thurrock Art Trail website!
Thurrock Art Trail 2017 was a great success, building on and supported by the ongoing work of the Trustees and other volunteers. It was managed by Yogesh Taylor and Steve Lawes and it received funding from Arts Council England. A big thank you to everyone who made it happen!
So what’s happening in summer 2018?
We’re scaling back a bit in 2018. Thurrock Art Trail is still part of the county-wide Essex Summer of Art and we’ll still receive support from Thurrock Council but we no longer have Arts Council funding. The success of this year’s trail is very much up to all the many talented artists and groups in the borough to organise exhibitions and events for themselves and use this website to tell people what’s going on. We won’t have the money to print publicity but this website links to Essex Summer of Art’s website and printed publicity so the potential audience is huge!
Thurrock artists: please participate in the Art Trail by putting on your own events at locations and dates that suit you – yes right through the summer until September. Send details very soon of what you’re planning by emailing: info@ThurrockArtTrail.org.uk Please send good quality photos of your work together with clear information and we’ll promote your event on this site.
Visitors to Thurrock Art Trail: visit the website regularly to see events and exhibitions which will be added as we receive the details. The first one to put in your diary so far will be the annual Horndon Feast and Fayre on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June 2018 where artists will be exhibiting at four venues.
