The celebration of Tendring’s seaside heritage has proven a success in the first ever Resorting to the Coast.
Over 100 people took to the coast of Jaywick to celebrate the Resorting to the Coast entertainment spectacular.
The Grand Theatre of Lemming’s colourful and creative take on Tendring’s seaside heritage entertained their audience with comedy, magic, music and a flea circus at the Martello Tower.
Juliana Vandegrift, the project coordinator for Resorting to the Coast, said: “Everyone was having a great time laughing and smiling, and the kids loved volunteering for the stage acts. Next year we are planning on building upon the act this year and basing it on the old concert parties with entertainment and crowd participation.
“This is our first year and we would love to continue the momentum. It is a free event supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Essex County Council with Tendring Council.”
The day began with an optional mile-long walk at 11am, followed by a heritage talk at noon, and entertainment between 1-4pm.
