Thurrock Art Lane Well House Gallery

Thurrock Art Trail has been organised by the same small group of people for the past seven years. They have decided that it is time to "pass the baton" on to new organisers who can come in with new ideas and fresh enthusiasm. If that is you, please contact us via the contact details on this website.

There will still be art at the annual Horndon Feast and Fayre but artists will be booking their own stalls directly with the Feast and Fayre. Art will be on display in the Well House Gallery all year as well as during Feast and Fayre weekend.

While in Horndon for the Feast and Fayre, visit the flower festival at the Church of St Peter and St Paul and take part in everything that Horndon Feast and Fayre offers. This includes Entertainment, Music, Food, Drink and many craft stalls lining the High Street and in the Village Hall and the Woolmarket. On the Sunday morning is the demanding Horndon 10k Road Race popular with spectators and competitors.

Note that the Village High Street is closed for all vehicles for both days. There is no parking in the Village but a car park is available at both approaches to the Village.

A historical note, the Feast and Fayre began in mediaeval times when King Edward I granted a Royal Charter to Robert Gifford and his heirs that the village should celebrate the feast of the Apostles Peter and Paul, the patron saints of the village Church. Although it was discontinued for a while, it was revived by the Horndon Society in 1974 and has happened every year since then.
