2021 Events

Since it's inception in 1996, Leigh-on-Sea Town Council has prided itself on organising and hosting fantastic community events across the Town. From Leigh Library Gardens, to the Old Town and the Broadway, and in more recent years Leigh Community Centre. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic the regular event programme was largely cancelled in 2020 and reduced for 2021. The Town Council have had to change with the times, introducing new innovative and covid-secure events such as the virtual farmers market and lighting schemes in Leigh Library Gardens for residents to enjoy.

As restrictions lift in 2021, the town council have planned the following:

  • Re-opening Leigh Farmers Market, including a monthly Saturday market and special birthday celebrations on Friday 16th July. MORE INFO HERE
  • Painted Stones at Leigh Community Centre available during the school holidays to pick up, decorate, return and display. MORE INFO HERE
  • Summer Puppet Show on Strand Wharf - Tuesday 24th August, 10am and 11am
  • Virtual Youth Market
  • Leigh Library Garden's Lighting Scheme and mini events - more info to follow as we begin planning
  • Christmas Farmers' Market

* Please note there is no Leigh Lights event this year. Instead, we are expanding our Leigh Library Gardens Lighting Scheme which will be accompanied by a series of mini events across December weekends, working with local charities and community groups to provide a wonderful festive season for our residents.
