Southend Book and Arts Fair

Southend Book and Arts Fair was held inside The Forum, Southend on Sea on Saturday 4th October as part of the Forum's 1st Anniversary weekend.   The event featured local writers with twenty two tables inside the Forum atrium and gallery area,

it's was a perfect chance to come and talk with local writers in the area and look at the wide range of work and talent present in the town.

Outisde we had entertainment on our open stage throughout the day with highlights to include a demonstration from the Southend Flamenco Club, songs from the forthcoming musical selections this autumn from renowned groups SODS, LODS and LTC including Footloose, Sister Act and The Witches of Eastwick.

We also had a local band Made in Paradise performing in the afternoon.

Please watch our highlights video for a taster of the day.
