Harwich Festival of Arts

Harwich Festival of the Arts – Historic Harwich and Dovercourt artworks are displayed in many buildings around the old town, complete with a huge public art installation generated by all of our young people. You will also find music, spoken word, dance and art melding seamlessly at the Harwich Festival.

Harwich Art Trail-The most northerly town in Essex, it is surrounded by water on three sides, and with regular ferries from Holland and Denmark it has a European atmosphere and a rich history. Alongside the Visual Arts the Harwich Festival promotes music, classical, experimental, folk and jazz, new film, poetry, contemporary dance and more, all taking place in a wide variety of venues – often rather unusual ones such as the LV18 Lightship moored at Harwich Quay.

The Sentinel Gallery

Art gallery located in the heart of the culturally vibrant town of Wivenhoe. The Sentinel Gallery Wivenhoe opened in March 2015 and is the mass project of local potter Pru Green. Located in the heart of Wivenhoe, a culturally vibrant small town in Essex.  1 hour from London Liverpool Street Station to Wivenhoe Railway Station, roughly 200 metres from the gallery. The building caused much stir for being strictly modern for which we pride ourselves; our exhibitions reflect this attitude. We host frequent and varied exhibitions of paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings and pottery of East Anglian and nationally famed artists.

Pru Green pottery Sentinel GalleryThe Sentinel Gallery hosts monthly exhibitions of paintings, prints, sculpture and drawings by upcoming artists. Alongside the permanent exhibition space is a ceramic room holding a vast array of Pru’s pottery and jewellery.
Together with a rapid changing exhibition program we also put on various workshops of lifedrawing, painting and the occasional clay-play. We hope to extend this with music evenings, poetry sessions and artist talks.
