Spectacular sensory experience Colourscape coming back to Thurrock

An immersive sensory event is returning to Thurrock to give people a chance to experience a unique journey through colour, music and light.

Residents have the opportunity to enter Colourscape – a series of inflatable connected chambers which are brightly lit, and follow beautiful music being played by incredibly talented musicians. There is also a chance for visitors to take part in a range of additional, free creative activities before or after their Colourscape experience.
The event is being organised by local creative organisation Start Thurrock alongside Colourscape originators Eye Music Trust and event experts Continental Drifts.
Start Thurrock Creative Director Katie Beadle, said:

“We supported the Colourscape event in Thurrock last year and it was an amazing success – we were blown away by the reaction.
“We are so happy to be bringing it back this summer and hope to see lots of people there
across the weekend.
“I can promise it’s unlike anything you will have done before – a really immersive, sensory
“We have taken the feedback from last year on board, and, on top of Colourscape itself, there will be host of other, free creative activities for everyone to get involved in.”

People attending can sharpen their pencils and unlock their imagination alongside illustrators who will be building a huge collaborative map, plus hear from an interactive storyteller.
There is also a chance to contribute to a giant mural and a chance to meet colourful stilt walkers who are sure to brighten up your day, whatever the weather.
Colourscape is taking place at Blackshots, King George’s Fields, Grays, RM16 2JU on Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7 between 12pm and 5pm.
Each 30-minute session inside Colourscape must be pre-booked. Sessions are £2.50 for adults, £1 for children and concessions, while under twos can enter for free and do not require a ticket.
