Jaywick Martello Tower

For this special evolving exhibition, we will be reshowing the Friends of Jaywick Martello Tower’s Tides of Tendring exhibition, which looks at the history of flooding in the area, and be adding new elements each month. The exhibition will be changing like the sea as we then explore the events of the 1953 North Sea floods in the UK and Europe to commemorate seventy years since the catastrophic event. Finally, the exhibition will then take a look at the future of flooding and local flood defences. Jaywick Martello Tower is open weekends from 10am-4pm

Valentine's day Valentine's Walk and Workshop
Tue, 14/02/2023 - 10:30 to 15:15
Ye Olde Albion Pub

Meeting artist Victoria Walsh outside Ye Old Albion on Rowhedge High Street, you will head along the river for a blustery wintery walk to blow away the cobwebs! Walking up the river towards the Hythe in Colchester, bring your camera and sketchpads to record images of wildlife on the river bank and picturesque Wivenhoe across the river! After completing the walk, you will head back to Ye Old Albion to take part in a Valentine's craft workshop. Held upstairs in the function room, there are amazing views of the estuary! Aswell as a brief talk about Valentine's cards (where the idea started, St. Valentine and if we the only ones who celebrate this day of love?!) you will make your own t-shirt yarn and be shown how to make wrapped hearts with local Creative Vikki Walsh of Mae Kandoo.
