Welcome to The Tilbury Carnival!

Thurrock is proud of its connections with the Empire Windrush, which arrived into the Tilbury Cruise Terminal on the 22nd June 1948 and a major celebration was held in 2018 to mark the 70th Anniversary of this arrival. A partnership between the Port of Tilbury; Tilbury on the Thames Trust; Tilbury Riverside Project; One Community Development Trust and Kinetika; and Thurrock Council applied to the Windrush Fund to look at how Windrush Day could be part of Tilbury Carnival 2019.
