“Estuary is a festival developed by Metal based in Southend on Sea as a cultural celebration of the spectacular Thames Estuary region across both the north and south shorelines and on the river itself. The inaugral festival – Estuary 2016 – took place over 16 days in September and October 2016 with a curated programme of art, literature, music and film. A mix of new and existing works pulled together powerful themes resonant to the place, its landscape, history and communities and were presented in significant, historic and unusual venues along the 40 miles of Essex and Kent shorelines.
“A festival that brilliantly matches the intention to the amazing site and constantly keeps culture and the community / social in perfect balance – so much so that I think anyone who encountered it will now think of the festival as much as the place (as part of the place) when the word Estuary comes to mind.” Audience Feedback, Estuary 2016 ”
