In 2014 the Beecroft Art Gallery moved from Westcliff-on-Sea to Southend’s old Central Library. A selection of paintings from the fine historic collection is always on display in the permanent gallery or in temporary exhibitions. There is also a year-round programme of contemporary art exhibitions. Please note that paintings cannot be moved at short notice.

Marine Parade was the centre for entertainment in the early 20th century. The Jolly Boys' bandstand, the Kursaal and other street entertainers were all based here. In the late 19th century the greens that stretched along the seafront were also the venue for fairgrounds. https://t.co/UynNgZHVaN
