Punters have a last chance to catch highlights of the Estuary 2016 new arts festival this weekend.

Art fans can get a taste of ‘the Tate Modern meets the river’ at Tilbury Cruise Terminal till this Friday at the Points of Departure art exhibition.

Highlights from the exhibits include John Akomfrah’s new film which premiered recently at the British Film Institute, ‘Mnemosyne.’

Tipped as the next Turner prize winner, John’s “powerful” and “haunting” film installation re-tells the stories of post-war immigrants to the UK.

A giant canoe swinging from the ceiling is another of the fine exhibits on display as part of Adam Chozko’s show ‘Ghost’.

The interactive show features a kayak which films people making their way on four unique voyages along the rivers Swale, Tamar, Tyne and Thames.

The show aims to show sculpture as vessel, coffin, bed, costume and camera rig – and is designed to ferry people to the ‘island of the dead’, a spokesman for festival organisers Metal said.

In total, 28 contemporary artists are presenting new and existing works in the historic Grade II listed Tilbury Cruise Terminal along with venues in Gravesend, open 11am to 4pm.

Music fans who wish to venture further afield can also catch Estuary 2016’s last act at the ‘Sounds of the Thames Delta’ show in Southend at the weekend.

A host of up-and-coming musicians and speakers will be performing at the Royal Pavilion on Southend Pier including the BBC’s Paul Morley, Dr Feelgood, Goldmine and Karl Hyde performing spoken word to punk and indie pop.

Catch them on Saturday October 1 and Sunday October 2 from 11am to 5pm and on Sunday 11am to 4pm, entry free. Ticketed evening shows also available at £10.
