10 Day Count Down – Purfleet
Day number 5 on the 10 day count down and it’s an easy walk through Purfleet. Join us on 19th Sept as we parade the 8 giant silk banners through Rainham Marshes to enter Purfleet at the RSPB centre, followed by a historical walk that includes haunts from Dracula’s Thameside residence and leads us through new housing to High House Production Park.
Here we will meet members from the Royal Opera House, students of the National College for the Creative Industries and artists who’ve found a new buzz outside of East London. Come and find out what draws these creatives to Thurrock!
