The River Crouch Celebrations

The River Crouch Celebrations 2015 brings together eight towns and villages from both sides of the river to gather, share and create stories through arts projects that celebrate the River – its role in the past, its present but unseen beauty, and the potential it has to benefit the community in the future.

There will be lots going on so get involved - share stories and pictures of lost walks and ghost crossings along the River Crouch.

We look forward to seeing you there.
