Watford Council have announced plans to bring back the annual summer ‘Big Beach’, a summer attraction for families located at The Parade in the town centre.
From 12th to 27th August, from 10am – 4pm, residents and visitors of all ages can indulge in the pleasures of a beach experience without having to travel to the coast.
The Big Beach event offers a fantastic opportunity for families and individuals to soak up the sun, build sandcastles, and enjoy a wide range of exciting beach activities. Admission is completely free of charge.
Throughout the two-week event, visitors to Big Beach will have access to beach toys, including buckets and spades, available at the beach hut. Additionally, Bowerbirdy Watford, the organisers of the popular What’s On program during the Easter and summer holidays, will host daily free activities to keep everyone entertained.
Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, said: “I am excited to welcome the Big Beach back to The Parade. Every year The Big Beach brings the seaside atmosphere right to the heart of Watford and provides a fun and free way to spend the day with the family. I would encourage everyone to head down, relax in one of the deckchairs, take part in beach games or build sandcastles.”
Deputy Mayor of Watford and Portfolio Holder for Community, Councillor Aga Dychton, said: “Big Beach in Watford presents an incredible opportunity for residents and visitors to immerse themselves in the joys of summer without venturing far from home. The sand opens imagination, bringing fun for all and helping everyone feel more relaxed.
“Don’t miss this chance to create treasured memories and enjoy the sand between your toes. The Big Beach is completely free, and you can join us at The Parade in the Town Centre from 12 to 27 August 2023. Let Big Beach bring the beach to you!”
