Explore Culture

Don't miss these events this weekend!

Welcome to Explore Culture, a one-stop shop for people living, working and visiting Essex to find out about cultural events and activities around the county. You can catch up on the latest news and developments, get information on cultural funding, and if you’re an organisation or venue, it’s a free resource for you to tell people about what you’re doing and how they can get involved.

ExploreCulture is run by Essex County Council’s Cultural Development team, helping to support a vibrant cultural economy for everyone to enjoy. If you’d like to get in touch with suggestions, questions or comments, please contact us: culture@essex.gov.uk
