Streets become canvases

Echo: Streets become canvases Streets become canvases

The streets of Billericay have become a canvas for an array of artwork.

The Billericay Art Trail features work by a raft of artists at shops, businesses and restaurants in the town, until July 20.

This year’s selection of works includes pet portraits, porcelain pots, townscapes, mosaics, decorative acrylic abstracts and ceramics.

The Hub at St Mary Magdalen, in High Street, will showcase one piece of work from each artist, along with information about them.

The Billericay Arts Festival will run alongside the event.

There will be Jazz in the Park on Saturday, July 12, a musical open mic night on Tuesday, July 15, and storytelling on Thursday, July 17.

There will also be a variety of music and choral events.

The art trail will also feature art produced by children from Billericay and the US.

Jazz in the park. Wonderful to find people who appreciate the arts enjoying music in the Park. Hard to believe that, just a couple of miles away, the annual music in the park was taken away from the majority of Basildon District because it cost so much money that our Council simply couldn't afford it. Ah well, truth will out one day!

There is a new Basildon Council. Who knows what will happen next? New brooms and all that....
