Watford town centre is set to be transformed into a big beach for a week, with 100 tonnes of real sand to be set around the pond in The Parade.

The free beach – measuring 20 metres long by 15 metres wide – for residents and visitors to relax on as if they are at the seaside.
Elected Mayor of Watford Dorothy Thornhill said: “This beach is going to be great fun for everyone. Why go all the way to the seaside when we are going to bring the beach here? You can go to some brilliant shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs as well when you visit our beach in Watford.

“Plus we’re going to have a whole range of free activities going on every day at the Big Beach – from a children’s pirate party to a 40-piece brass band. Everyone’s welcome to join in, and they’re for all ages. Plus there will be beach huts and beach food here.”

The Big Beach will run from Saturday, July 25, to Sunday, August 2, staying open from 9am to 9pm every day. It is one of a series of major community experiences the council is staging as part of the Big Events series to celebrate its refurbishment of The Parade.

On the Big Beach’s launch day, there will be face-painting, magic and even some yoga. Plus Everyone Active will lead an exercise class at 12.30pm and 2.30pm to help people get fit for summer.

The beach will be transformed into a pirates’ paradise on Sunday, July 26, when Fizz Kids hold a Pirate Party. There will be a pirate fancy dress competition and a host of swashbuckling games, including the limbo and a pirate themed magic show at 2.30pm.

Life’s a Beach at the IOW Festival 2014 went with a bang and was our largest and most creative urban beach design yet.

The sun shone and made the beach the perfect place to relax with a smokin’ cocktail on our bespoke natural beach furniture whilst checking out the beach stage and the impressive graffiti and sand art.

All our acts were amazing (thank you) and brought the beach alive. Particularly popular as always was the islands very own Derek Sandy who got the crowd singing and dancing and Chainska who filled the beach and got everyone ska-dancing, and of course the loveable, Loveable Rogues put on a typically bold and lively performance to a packed (and hot!) beach.

Dagny was beautiful, the Hoosiers put on a slick performance, Kitten and the Hip were jumping and we had a surprise appearance by James Smith from Britain’s got Talent who we know we’ll all be seeing a lot more of.

A happy sunny weekend was had by all!

See you next year…..
