UNIT is a place that encourages imagination. A place that explores and guides artistic discovery, empowering individuality and diversity through the joys of sound and performance.
Inside has 4 music areas, a workshop lab, a performance stage, DJ booth and media production suite with a greenscreened studio for digital events.
UNIT hosts cultural events and music opportunites for people in Thurrock
UNIT also hosts our community radio station (Thames Delta Radio) that showcases local DJs/MCs, singer/songwriters and musicians to online audiences, sharing arts news, promoting South Essex’s voluntary and community sector services and local businesses, making a better well connected Thurrock.
The media production suite is available to support artist development, improving skills that match the fast changing creative industries.
We have a unique but simple approach, all inclusive of creativity with accessibility and diversity.
UNIT can usually be hired by other art groups, to meet, plan and deliver art based projects in Thurrock, but due to the pandemic this is currently not available.
Supported by Hew Watt Family Charitable Fund, National Lottery, Thurrock CVS, FSJ Trust, Intu Lakeside, Greggs Bakery.
The safety of our team and artists is our number one priortiy and as a Covid secure venue within Thurrock Council's Thameside Complex, together we are constantly reviewing the latest government advice and adjusting our protocols to make our venue as safe as possible. We will still operate through digital means and currently are not open to the general public. We look forward to welcoming back public live audiences to our events in the near future.
