The vibrant colours and bold lines of the Wish You Were Here Beach Huts have been drawing attention ever since the artists first wielded their paintbrushes aloft against the more muted blue-greys of the sea. Now the final flourishes have been daubed and everything’s all dry, we are greatly looking forward to the official launch.

 

ALL ARE WELCOME – From 5pm this Friday, the 12th August.

Come down to Southend Pier for art, Essex history, music, literature, film, sound all in 10 perfectly formed beach huts designed by artists.

Wish You Were Here is just one part of the extensive programme for Estuary Festival 2016, taking place over 3 weekends this September/October.

 

More details about the installations can be found in this piece from The Echo…
