From opera to sand sculptures and morris dancing to Madness, there’s loads of festival fun to be had on or near the beach this summer
It doesn’t get any beachier than Weston-Super-Mare’s annual Sand Sculpture Festival which, for the past 11 years has seen countless impressive statues carved on the seashore. This year artists have been invited to respond to the theme of “Topsy Turvy”, and following on from the success of Banksy’s Dismaland in the town two years ago, organisers are hoping for some alternative political expression to be played out in the sand.
• Until the end of September, adults £4, children £3, family (2 adults, 2 children) £ 10, westonsandsculpture.co.uk
