Sand Sculpture Festival Brighton Returns To Seafront To Take Us 'Around The World...In Sand'

Wednesday 30 April, 2014
Brighton seafront is once again hosting the Sand Sculpture Festival (brightonsandsculpture.co.uk) in 2014. This year’s theme will take you on a magical journey ‘Around the World...in Sand’ – with many changes and improvements to the site, as well as brand new, fabulous hand carved sculptures to enjoy, made only from sand and water. From the pyramids to the Tower of Pisa the Festival will cover it all, allowing visitors to take a walk through all 7 continents, photograph some of the most famous landmarks in the world and enjoy the vast array of our planets creatures…all through the medium of sand. Where else can you do that?

From now until the 28th September, visitors can experience the wonder of this magical art and will also have the chance to get involved; sand sculpture workshops, live demonstrations, unique photo opportunities, a children's sand pit, café, gift shop and much more will be on offer.

Sand Artist and TV Presenter (CBBC’s Deadly Art) Nicola Wood says “We are hugely excited about this festival. Brighton is such a vibrant, cultural city and I can’t wait to kick off 2014. We are planning a fantastic family event, with something for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. We hope locals and holiday makers alike will come to the exhibition and enjoy everything it has to offer.”

Geoffrey Bowden, Chair of the Brighton and Hove City Council's Economic Development and Culture Committee, says “We're confident this attraction will increase the numbers of people going to the eastern part of the seafront, and that other businesses there will benefit as a result."

Brighton Sand Sculpture Festival is located on the beach at the Madeira Drive, Black Rock Site, next to the last station of the historic Volks Railway (volkselectricrailway.co.uk) the oldest electric railway in the world. A ticket to the Festival includes a one way trip on the Volks Railway from the station by Brighton Pier, as a convenient, but mostly fun, way to get to the site.
