To Saturday 17 September 2016
An invitation, which may interest members on the Thames...
"I run an arts organisation called Metal. We are developing a biennial arts festival called Estuary that will take place in venues along the banks of the Thames Estuary in September this year from Purfleet to Southend on Sea. (seewww.estuaryfestival.com)
The main venue – and launch weekend – is being held at Tilbury Cruise Terminal over the weekend of Friday 16 – Sunday 18 September. We are currently trying to find vessels that have berths on board – that might like to come and moor at the Terminal over that weekend and book in people to stay on board on the evenings of
Friday 16 September and Saturday 17 September
We have permission from the Cruise Terminal to do this – and we know that there will be a strong interest from our audiences to book the bed space.
I wondered if you might know of any Dutch Barges that might be interested in this as an opportunity. There is room at Tilbury for 5 or 6 vessells under 100ft long – the draft is 2.1m – and there is access to power.
I wondered if you may be able to help – or have any suggestions. I would be very grateful for any advice you might be able to give.
With warm wishes, Colette"
