City that Walks on Water

Southend Pier & Railway

The City that Walks on Water Project (CTWOW) is a community-led creative exploration of Southend-on-Sea’s historical legacy. It aims to create a dramatic and inclusive theatrical blueprint that informs and engages the rich and diverse heritage that has made a small fishing village into a thriving city.

CTWOW will work with local community groups using historical research and storytelling to find the people whose lives echo current times, and move history away from weighty tomes and dry lectures to playful scripts and engaging stories that will bring heritage to life across generations.

There will be performances in four locations on Southend Pier and a programme for each audience member. The ticket includes entrance to walk the pier.

Event suitable for ages 6+.
