The T100 Festival of Walking is set to return to Thurrock

THE T100 Festival of Walking, Talking & Making is back for 2023 with this year’s programme revolving around sound.

Taking place from the 21 June to 9 July, the T100 Sounds will feature a series of fourteen free walks, engaging talks, wonderful workshops and exciting community celebrations along the Thames Estuary. This year’s programme includes a newly-commissioned audio installation, ‘Thurrock Soundscape’, a night of shanties at Thurrock Yacht Club and Windrush 75 celebrations, plus much more. T100 Sounds is the ninth edition of this annual arts festival and all walks are free to attend due to the generous funders of T100.

T100 Sounds launches on Wednesday 21 June with a special summer solstice walk of RSPB Rainham Marshes, led by a seasoned guide, where walkers will be able to fully take in beautiful birdsong and nature.

Over the next two and a half weeks, 13 more walks will criss-cross Thurrock taking in towns, villages and green spaces, with each event highlighting the local landscape and unique stories of the area through its sounds. Those joining T100 Sounds this year can tune into performances by local musicians and bands as well as hear poems, songs and more, all celebrating the local area.
