The Harwich ‘Art Quarter’ features unpredictable spaces as galleries and the Festival ends with the stunning ‘Carmina Burana’ set in an illuminated St Nicholas church.      AS I SEE IT   Diana Burrell    Strong currents energise the waters around our Essex coast and bracing winds re-order the cloud  formations that race along our skies. Huge flocks of migrating birds speed in from the north,  whilst massive container ships laden with cargo strike out in another direction. Nothing stands still  for long here.
