We are partnering up with fellow Thames Estuary Borough, Gravesham on the other side of the river and working in partnership with Gravesham Light Festival for their 2024 Light-Up event, REFLECTIONS.

27th of January, come along to the Tilbury Cruise Terminal from 4:30pm for free lantern making with Arts Outburst and a light installation from professional creative, Connor Turansky. With the help of CMPM we will be lighting up Tilbury Bridge and all of the amazing work of EVEWRIGHT on the Walkway of Memories.
Spend some time with the team and then ferry across the river to #VisitGravesend for a free evening at Gravesham’s Light Festival, REFLECTIONS. Performances, Light Features, Music – a wonderful sensory experience throughout Gravesend town, a short walk from the ferry landing dock.
Guided tours are available, and more information on REFLECTIONS can be found right here.
