Estuary 2016: Charabanc

As part of the Estuary 2016 festival, there will be a Southend Charabanc weekend celebrating all of Southend’s local art attractions in traditional charabanc day-trip style! There will be a packed itinerary of events at various art venues around Southend-on-Sea. Vintage buses from the Canvey Island Transport Museum will make hop-on / hop-off stops to all the venues, making sure you don’t have to miss out on anything!
