Chelmsford 100 

On this page


C100 is Chelmsford’s mobile celebration of community, creativity, environment, and volunteering led by Chelmsford CVS. This project has been directly influenced and modelled on a project founded by Kientika, the T100 Festival.

Kinetika, along with handpicked local groups and volunteers working with Chelmsford CVS, created a celebration of the talents, resourcefulness, and spirit that resides across the district. Inspiration was be taken from the beautiful waterways and outdoor spaces, as well as the people who live among them.

The centrepiece of Chelmsford 100 is 100 hand-painted silk flags illustrating local stories. The flags were displayed in an exhibition and walking festival, which launched on 1 July 2022 and lasted throughout the summer. In subsequent years the intention is to build on this legacy, creating an expanding and connected celebration.

C100 will enable exploration of local journeys and walks taken, celebrating people and place; championing diversity, community strength and the different neighbourhood connections that continue to be made. Go to the Chelmsford 100 website.
