Watford's Big Beach returns this Summer

The seaside is only a stone’s throw away this summer as the Big Beach returns to The Parade by the pond from Friday 16 to Friday 30 August.

Part of Watford Borough Council’s series of Big Events, the Big Beach uses real sand and promises to build on the success of previous Big Beach events.

Come along with your family and friends and join in on the free fun taking place – from arts and crafts, children’s activities and exercise classes, there is something for everyone, all for free on the real beach.

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “It's great to have the beach back in town. I’m pleased that despite a 70% reduction in funding from central government, that we are still able to put on events like these ones free of charge for people in our town. Come along for two weeks of fun in the Watford sunshine!”
