T100 GOes WIld

25 May to 22 June 2024

T100 Goes Wild is the 10th annual T100 Festival, a celebration of growing and going wild across Thurrock and beyond. 

Join us for a series of FREE walks and events along the Thames Estuary, which invite you to get outdoors, be creative and explore the natural environment. From seeds sown ten years ago, T100 is flourishing, with a year-round programme of free activity, and our annual summer festival, we’re marking our growth, discovering the local area and setting down roots for the future. 

This year’s festival will launch on 25 May at High House Production Park with a family-friendly garden party full of workshops, performances, tours, and more. Following this, we will embark on nine walks across Thurrock and further afield to discover our unique landscape and natural wildlife. From Canvey Wick to Grays, South Ockendon to Hackney, Fobbing to Rainham Marshes, we will be exploring nature, stories of local communities and more. 

As part of this year’s festival, we are working with Thurrock LGBTQ+ Network and Arts Outburst on Thurrock’s first-ever Pride event on 8 June, we will co-leading a walk from Purfleet Train Station to Thameside Theatre alongside community members. 

The festival will culminate on Saturday 22 June with a flag parade through Grays town centre into the second edition of the Afro Food Fest to celebrate T100 being 10!
