Essex Architecture Weekend

Radical Essex is presenting the first ever Essex Architecture Weekend, a programme of events to celebrate the county’s pioneering role in 20th century architecture. The two-day festival will pivot around three key sites – the Bata Estate in East Tilbury, founded in 1932 by the Czech visionary Thomas J. Bata; Silver End, a model village conceived in 1926 by the industrialist Francis Henry Crittall; and Frinton-On-Sea. In doing so, it will show how the region was at the forefront of modernist architecture and experimental community models. Visitors can tour the county in free shuttle buses, participate in walking tours, open house visits at venues including The Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Burnham-on-Crouch and attend a talks programme with speakers including Gillian Darley, Elizabeth Darling, Owen Hatherley, Charles Holland and Jonathan Meades.
