As a port town for over 130 years Tilbury has an amazing diverse cultural canvas from which to build on its sense of place.  Tilbury is embedded in our national story through its maritime industry and its extensive heritage.

The Towns Fund is a huge opportunity to build on the Tilbury story from the ground up.  The community has the ability to succeed. 

Sitting at the fulcrum of the Thames, Tilbury has been the workforce in the docks and now is the time for it to stand up and be levelled up and really put this industrial historic town on the map.  

Tilbury is often recognised for its sense of community and over the years has come to together to celebrate the towns unique identify and rich heritage including  carnival and the anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush.
