Estuary Festival 2021
22nd May - 13th June 2021
Estuary 2021 is a large-scale arts festival curated in response to the spectacular Thames Estuary and the lives, landscapes and histories found here.
Presented over 23 days from 22 May to 13 June 2021, the festival is a major celebration of culture, creativity, recovery and renewal.
Take an epic walk along the stunning coastline of North Kent and South Essex to experience contemporary artworks and performance within the estuary landscape, historic sites and coastal towns including Chatham.
Inspired by Tom King’s book and responding to the pandemic, more than 50 artworks are being placed along this 107-mile long walk. Through May and June, explore new perspectives on well-known estuary landmarks and some of the lesser known estuary environments.
Alongside an online discussion and events programme, the physical programme will explore and respond to powerful themes resonant to the Estuary, from the climate, to rebellion and imperial legacy.
