Village Green Festival 2017

July 8, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 9:00 pm

£15
Village Green Festival 2017

Southend’s biggest music festival is back in 2017!

Offering so much more than music, Village Green Festival celebrates all art forms (with strictly NO cheesy face painting or bouncy castles!).

Set in the picturesque grounds of the beautiful Victorian park, Chalkwell Park, Village Green festival goers are spoilt for activities and entertainment with eight different stages, gardens and green space and different marketplaces. If you want to take a break from the live music, you can enjoy some theatre, spoken word, poetry, lindy-hop and fox trot lessons, outdoor arts, circus and cabaret acts, films, workshops, games and much much more. Every activity is arts-led.
