The Bata Heritage Centre is proud to be part of the national “Heritage Open Days” celebration 2016. Over the weekend of 10-11 September, we are a major destination on the Radical Essex / Focal Point Gallery itinerary exploring three key modernist estates in Essex. Walking tours of the Bata Estate have been arranged and our volunteers will be on hand to provide further information. The Bata Heritage Centre based at East Tilbury Library will be open between 10:00am and 5:00pm both days. All are welcome to visit.
