Get your buckets and spades ready for a special family-fun ‘Beached Art’ competition on St. Anne’s Beach. The free, fun, afternoon event happens on Tuesday 28th July from 1.00 p.m. until 3.00 p.m.   The theme this year is to create a marine-themed sand art sculpture masterpiece. And, as an added bonus, entry is free – although donations to Living Seas North West are always welcome. The top three sand sculptures will receive super prizes courtesy of Fylde Sand Dunes and Living Seas North West.

To book your place and to find further information the online booking system is now open on the Living Seas website events page:


Those joining in with the family fun event should head to the Beach off Fairhaven Road Car Park, Inner Promenade, St Anne’s, FY8 1NW and meet the organisers on the beach at the bottom of the slipway that is situated on the left hand side of the car park (if you are facing the sea). Look out for the gazebo and flag – and you’ll be made most welcome!  Parking is available at the Pay and Display Fairhaven Road Car Park (the car park that contains Beach Café, Fylde). Don’t forget to bring your buckets and spades and wear suitable clothing and footwear for the beach. The public toilets at this location cost 20p.
