Explore Essex Summer of Art and ENAS events this summer

The seventh Summer of Art, showcasing artists from across the county from June to September has now taken place. We hope that you have enjoyed the art trails and the ENAS events, which form the largest annual visual arts festival in Essex. 

The planning for the 2016 Essex Summer of Art and ENAS events is now underway. We hope to be able to provide more information early next year. In the meantime why not browse our other cultural offerings under the Cultural Essex pages.
