Kids can also go wild at the giant jungle themed sand beach, playing and making sandcastles, whilst you relax after some retail therapy on the new and improved larger decking area.

Marketing Manager, Leanna Lawson said; “This is the last event of the summer, the giant sand beach will be opening for the last time on Sunday 1st September.

“It’s been an amazing summer with so many children and parents enjoying the sand pit and the regular free events.”

“We hope you can come down and go wild one last time before it closes. The sand beach is the perfect pit stop whilst doing your back to school shop” She added.

Please note that children are not to be left unattended at this event or any of our events, including the sand beach. There are no real animals used at this event, or any of our events.
