Village Green

Fun for all the family.


Village Green is a multi-art form and music festival, produced by arts organisation and charity, Metal. 'Headliner's this year include Busted, Fun Lovin' Criminals and Ruti from 'The Voice'. Sited in the picturesque grounds of a beautiful Victorian park in Chalkwell, Southend-on-Sea, Village Green bursts with energy. A wide range of different stages, green spaces, rose gardens, cricket pitches and marketplaces offer an eclectic mix of international, national and local music acts, theatre, spoken word, poetry, dance, outdoor arts, circus and cabaret, vintage acts, musical theatre, visual arts, comedy, improvisation, film, workshops and games all set against the seaside. Only ten years ago Village Green was a small scale celebration of the arts and music of Southend attracting 8,000 visitors. Now, it regularly attracts over 20,000 festival goers. A key to the success of the festival is the calibre of acts and the diversity of performances. Its strength is its family-centred ethos - where children, teenagers, pensioners and adults can all have fun in the same space on the same day, with something to do whatever age you are.

Previous festival acts have included:-
Kate Nash, Nothing But Thieves, Rag N Bone Man, Nitin Sawhney, The Selecter, Beth Orton, Dan le Sac v Scroobius Pip, Passenger, Man Like Me, Eddi Reader, Roland Gift, The Slackers, Wilko Johnson, Shlomo, Sam Duckworth, The Skints, Ballet Black, Molly Nyman, Harry Escott and the Samphire Band, Billy Bragg, James Taylor Quartet, Boy with Tape on his Face, Tom Wrigglesworth, Francesca Martinez, Camera Obscura, Carleen Anderson, Paper Cinema, Forest Fringe, BBC Blast, Hip Hop Shakespeare Company, John Hegley, Phill Jupitus, The Blockheads and many more.
