I shall be taking part in the Estuary Fringe festival this year. Their website is estuaryfringe.weebly.com and their Facebook page can be found here, where they have the following description of the event:
The Estuary Fringe was created with the aim of taking art back from the pretentious art elites who have somehow insinuated themselves into the borough and hand it back to the local community, to everyone, where it belongs.
Dreamt up by four fools from Southend and under the direction of the fringes creative director John Bulley, hold on “creative director”, that’s art bollocks, the fringe is about anarchic fun without the guilt.
The first festival in June 2013 was incredibly successful. Organised in just 7 weeks with no money and no idea what we were letting ourselves in for, we were blown away by just how well it all went, so we have decided to do it all again this year.
Over 9 days in August this year’s festival will be bigger and better with even more artist, local, national and international from all genres, painters and musicians, graffiti artists, poets, performance artists, the festival really will have it all as this year we are pleased to announce that we will have theatrical productions and independent films as well.
The Estuary Fringe Festival, from Saturday 2nd August until Sunday 10th August. Come see what’s on and enjoy.
No need to pay £10 + booking fee for tickets, its free… just turn up, join in and have fun…
