Description

La Cocina Publica Community Feast

Part of Thurrock 100 Recipes 2018

Saturday 21st July 1.30-3.30pm

Venue: London International Cruise Terminal, Ferry Road, Tilbury, Essex RM18 7NG

Kinetika is collaborating with Chilean arts organisation Teatro Container, on their UK Premier tour, to bring La Cocina Publica, their Public Kitchen, to Tilbury to be part of the Port Open Day.

Teatro Container will collaborate with local and diverse community groups prior to the event to devise a menu, drawing together local recipes and foods, stories and songs. The mobile kitchen is built inside a shipping container, it offers a place to share moments and memories and collectively discover, rediscover and appreciate food from around the world.

The Community Feast takes place after a fun walk from Tilbury Town to Port walk which you can book separately here. You don’t have to complete the walk in order to join the feast, but you do need to reserve your place for the feast via this page.

Tilbury community feast

What is it? A way to meet other people, families and communities from the local area and share a afternoon of food and entertainment. If you have a song or recipe to share, a tale to tell, or would like to help to make bunting for the day we would love to hear from you, workshops for that happen 14-19 July, more info HERE

What happens? This is your community feast and we need you to help create it! When you arrive there will be fun ways to help, like preparing the tables, and helping with the food. It’s all a lot of fun, which is directed by Teatro Container, who have been doing this in Chile for 10 years. There will also be a variety of entertainment too, but that will be under wraps until the day itself!

What to bring? The willingness to try something new and get involved! But seriously, it would really help if you can bring your own own cutlery and plate/bowl. We'll have food to share, and we'd love it if you brought your own favourite vegetarian dish to share too, but there's no obligation.

Is it really free? Yes! The feast is free to attend, and there will be free food available to share. All we ask is that you get involved somehow either beforehand (making bunting, sharing songs, devising a performance, sharing a recipe etc) or on the day itself. You won’t be asked to do anything you’re not comfortable with, and everyone is welcome.

Come and feast with us – reserve your place today!
