Culture on your doorstep

Visit Southend has joined with culture partners in Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to bring ‘Culture on your Doorstep’ to residents this autumn.

The campaign will feature contributions from Southend Museums, Focal Point Gallery, Southend Libraries, Fusion Lifestyle, and Southend Pier. It aims to highlight the variety of the cultural offer available to residents and visitors to Southend this half term.

Southend’s Cultural assets are diverse and multifaceted, and Visit Southend want to shout about it. So, unearth the secrets of the Thames Estuary at Southend Central Museum’s ‘Wild Estuary’ exhibition, take a walk on the world’s longest pleasure Pier, discover the outcomes of a possible future with Focal Point Gallery and more! With free entry to most venues (be sure to double check before visiting) the Southend culture scene is accessible and welcoming for everyone.

Cllr Kevin Robinson, cabinet member for business, culture and tourism, said: “Southend has historically had a reputation as a seaside ‘kiss me quick’ resort but it has so much more to offer.

“Our art galleries attract internationally renowned artists and our Central Museum is home to the hugely significant Prittlewell Prince burial exhibition. We are keen to share some of these hidden gems with both residents and visitors alike.”

The campaign will run across Visit Southend social media accounts starting Wednesday 21 October and will continue until the end of October.

Visitors are asked to check the Covid-19 restrictions in place for their area and are reminded that these restrictions stay with you when you travel to a different area. Further information about this can be found at:
