The Tilbury Riverside Project, Port of Tilbury and the High House Production Park will be teaming up this weekend for Heritage Open Day, showcasing the history of the Port since it was opened in 1886 as well as the Cruise Terminal and local community.
On Saturday 10th September, the historic Grade II* listed Cruise Terminal will be open to all visitors from 10am til 4pm and there will be scheduled vintage bus tours to the Royal Opera House High House Production Park at Purfleet and trips around the Docks. There will be opportunities for people to learn about the history of the Cruise Terminal and Tilbury Docks as well as music and displays and presentations by local arts and crafts groups. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
Ron Curtis, Chairman of the Tilbury Riverside Project said “The TRP have been running Heritage Open Days for a number of years now and they’ve always been a roaring success. Tilbury has a fascinating history that is all too often passed by; this Saturday will be a great opportunity for people to learn a little more about this immensely important historic building. We’re grateful to the Port of Tilbury for their support in organising this great event.”
Visitors will also have the chance to purchase raffle tickets to win a mini cruise to the Christmas markets of Amsterdam and Antwerp with all funds raised going to the Tilbury Christmas Lights Fund.
