Welcome to T100 People
The 8th T100 festival has now come to a close. Over the month of June, T100 People invited everyone to come together to celebrate Thurrock’s key workers and community in a series of exciting events taking place across the region.
T100 People took place from the 2 – 25 June 2022 and featured a series of events, walks, talks and community celebrations along the Thames Estuary, as well as the return of The Thank You Dance – a section of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant that took part on The Mall on the 5th June, created by and featuring people from Thurrock itself!
The Thank You Dance was a spectacular, visually stunning and animated movement section created by artistic directors and producers Ali Pretty from Kinetika and Jeanefer Jean-Charles MBE from Jeanefer Jean-Charles & Associates, and featured multigenerational participants drawn from across Thurrock, including seven inspirational key workers from the local area and hundreds of performers adorned in colourful hand-painted silk.
Each T100 People event on our programme recognised key workers, the sector they work in and the values they uphold, with The Thank You Dance making an appearance as part of the T100 People finale, held on the 25 June 2022.
