About Village Green

Village Green is a multi-art form and music festival, produced by Metal Culture in the picturesque grounds of a beautiful Victorian park in Chalkwell, Southend on Sea, Essex.

A variety different stages, green spaces, rose gardens, cricket pitches, pathways and marketplaces offer up a pot-pourri of international music acts, theatre, spoken word, poetry, lindy-hop/ fox trot lessons and displays, outdoor arts, circus and cabaret, vintage acts, musical theatre, visual arts, comedy, improvisation, film, workshops and games all set against the backdrop of the enigmatic estuary.

A key to the success of the festival is the calibre of acts and the diversity of performances, which in previous years has included Wilko Johnson, Sam Duckworth, Stereo MCs, Rag'N'Bone Man, The Asylums, Youth Club, Tiggs Da Author, The Skints, Ballet Black, the Royal Opera House, Molly Nyman Harry Escott and the Samphire Band, Passenger, Billy Bragg, James Taylor Quartet, Camera Obscura, Carleen Anderson, Ed Harcourt, John Hegley and, local boy, Phill Jupitus jumping on stage with the Blockheads. But the strength of the annual festival is its family centred ethos - where children and adults can have fun with strictly NO face painting or bouncy castles – every activity is arts-led.
