Theatre company encourages visitors to Essex
9:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A THEATRE company has helped encourage Londoners to try the Essex coast.
Visit Essex marked the start of its 2013 Discovery Coast campaign by sending some familiar faces to the capital’s Gabriel’s Wharf.
The ‘Tub Men’ from Manningtree’s Grand Theatre of Lemmings posed as Essex celebrities.
For the stunt last Tuesday they dressed as Essex chef Jamie Oliver and popstar Olly Murs.
They were then carried around in a bathtub.
Visit Essex hope to entice Londoners to visit some of Essex’s 350 miles of coastline for days out and short breaks.
