Port of Tilbury kicks off the summer with local performers at busy open day

Kiana GreenanForth Ports, General News

The Port of Tilbury’s community Open Day, held on Saturday 11th May was a great success with local performers, market stalls and red bus port tours. Hundreds of local people of all ages arrived at the sunny London Cruise Terminal for a day of events.

The event was organised by the Forth Ports team but was supported by volunteers from Thurrock and Tilbury. Over £600 was raised for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) as they celebrated their 200th anniversary.

The free events throughout the day included a sold-out vintage bus port tour and a new makers market which proved to be a great addition to the open day. Families also enjoyed face painting, crafts, and a competitive penalty shoot-out!

Paul Dale, Asset and Site Director from The Port of Tilbury said: “We had a fantastic day on Saturday as we once again opened our port doors to the local community. The day was enjoyed by everyone involved including our very own teams and their families. We are so grateful to have such a supportive community around us and would like to thank everyone who attended.”
