CTWOW at the Southend
Film Festival

Blade Education is excited to announce that the City that Walks on Water Film has been selected for screening at the Southend-on-Sea Film Festival 2024.

The CTWOW Film is a recorded presentation of the City That Walks On Water Promenade Performace 
that was brought to a wonderful audience by the team of local actors on Southend Pier in September 2023.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund the whole project brought together stories from Southend's history taking in some of the most important times in our heritage from the inception of Southend Pier in the 1820s to 2023. For more information about CTWOW please see the website at

The Southend-on-Sea Film Festival screening will take place in the historic Ballroom of the Park Inn by Radisson Palace Hotel at 12pm (midday) on Sunday 9th June.

The CTWOW Team will be there and we hope you can join us!
