Welcome to the Kitchen Table

Kinetika is once again inviting Thurrock communities to join them in exploring the local area on the T100 walking festival which in 2019 will explore Thurrock’s varied heritage through shared recipes and personal stories.

Following on from 2018’s T100 with its theme of food, 2019’s festival is entitled Welcome to the Kitchen Table. It will encompass a series of 15 days of walks across Thurrock, along the Thames Estuary and in Kent, and end with a carnival at Tilbury Cruise Terminal on 20 July.

The T100 Thurrock walks begin on Saturday 6 July with a walk from Grays to Purfleet with a shared picnic at the end. Four further walks occur in Thurrock over the course of the festival:

  • 7 July – Purfleet to intu Lakeside,
  • 8 July – Lakeside to Bulphan/Orsett via Davy Down and Chafford Gorges,
  • 10 July – Chadwell to East Tilbury and the final walk of the festival,
  • 20 July – Gravesend to Tilbury Cruise Terminal via Tilbury Town. This walk will end with the finale event at Tilbury Cruise Terminal and see the Tilbury Carnival revived with community choirs. At each walk there will be sharing of food, recipes, stories and drawings and opportunities for reflection, exchange and creativity.
