Drama Festival Starts Sunday


The Drama Festival is almost upon us. There are some excellent shows on this week so please support this extravaganza of talent. Thurrock’s own Courts players will strut their stuff on Thursday.

Yourthurrock wiill get to as many performances as possible and post a review on this site.

Sad to report that when this reporter was at the complex this evening there is hardly a mention of the festival either by poster or promotion. If this festival is to survive then the Thameside really needs to consider its lack of promotion and awareness as visitors ,for the first time tonight ,could not even find the theatre. The Thameside has been attracting the wrong sort of news recently and needs to play its part as the theatre of Thurrock..
