Resorting to the Coast teamed up with Mercury Theatre Colchester to deliver a new schools programme with local primary schools across the Tendring district in Essex in 2018.

Creative practitioners used different art forms to explore the seaside heritage with pupils. We love the results! The young students gave a sharing performance at West Cliff Theatre and for many it was their first time on a professional stage.

We hope you enjoy our film and thank you to the Heritage Lottery Fund and Essex County Council for providing the funding. Huge thanks to Mercury Theatre and the practitioners, Walton Primary School, Alton Park, Frinton Primary School and Whitehall Academy.

Year 2 has started!

Mercury is working with Hamford Primary School, Spring Meadow Primary School, Dovercourt Primary School, Frinton Primary School and Clacton St Marys. Watch this space for an update!
