“Picturing War across Town and Country: John Piper and Graham Sutherland”

We will explore these artists’ paintings from World War II when they set out to record the home front.

Mayor Kevin Robinson of Southend City has chosen the brilliant St Vincents Centre – a busy community hub in Southend which runs vital services and programmes to support vulnerable people in the local community – as his main charity this year.
