Sunday at the Seaside

Sunday, August 18, 2019

Take a trip down memory lane and join us for a good old fashioned family fun day at the seaside!

Go back to the past with Roker Pier and help to celebrate the Heritage Lottery funded restoration of the pier and lighthouse with music, childrens entertainers, face painting, punch and judy, storytelling and much more (see attached Map and schedule below for further information).

Or why not let your imagination run wild and take part in the Big Dig and build the sand castle of your dreams! Only £5 to enter and this includes your bucket and spade. 

Alternatively take part in Katie Paterson's nationwide event by creating sand sculptures in the shape of major global mountains. Roker beach is one of only 25 beaches taking part!
