Southend-based theatre group, N-Act are designing an area at Village Green festival to capture the imagination of festival-goers. Work is being done to recreate the much-loved Chalkwell Beach Theatre from the 1950s. Throughout the festival, there will be a huge variety of performances, all of which will have a particular focus on young people. N-Act have now selected a line up of local performers and groups to perform on their stage - watch this space!
They will be interviewed by Nikki Nicholas on Ship Full of Bombs tonight. Nikki's Soul Food Kitchen starts at 6pm - you can listen to it here.
