Swansea Shopping Centre Beach

Swansea beach

The rain hasn’t stopped people in Swansea having fun on the beach – thanks to the Quadrant Shopping Centre.

An eight metre by four metre stretch of golden sand has appeared at the centre and children have been making the most of it this week even as the skies outside have darkened.

Among those having a great time building sandcastles on the indoor beach have been cousins Jake, four, and Ellis Richards, two, who were there with their grandmother, Gloria Richards, from Fforestfach, Swansea.

She said: “They’re having a lovely time and really enjoying it. There are loads here, about 20 little ones all playing in the sand.

It’s a fabulous beach. We didn’t know it was here but as soon as they saw it they wanted to play and they’ve been here for an hour now having lots of fun.”

Sarah Temple, from Swansea’s Penlan, has been there this week with her son Danny, eight, and her niece and nephew, Taylor, eight, and Rowan, nearly two. She said: “It was nice to have a coffee in peace today while they were busy in the sand.

“They’re really enjoying themselves making sandcastles. It’s perfect for them and we’ll definitely be coming back.”

Quadrant Shopping Centre deputy manager Lindy Emms said of the new arrival: “The weather has been a bit miserable outside but in here the children have been having a lovely time.

“We supplied plenty of buckets and spades and they’ve done the rest and Thorntons are on hand with ice creams as well so the seaside has well and truly arrived at the Quadrant Shopping Centre in Swansea.”

The indoor beach has been provided by Beach Events who were involved in installing the 2012 London Olympics Beach Volleyball courts.

And the company has built “urban beaches” all over the country.

Lifes a Beach at I.O.W Festival

May 21, 2014   //   by Steph   //   Beach Events, Blog, Festival Beaches, Temporary Beach Build  //  No Comments

Lifes a Beach at the mighty Isle of Wight Festival will be kicking off in 23 days and is coming back bigger and better than ever with a massive 1600 square metre temporary urban beach.

This year the theme is Newport Beach with graffiti artists, sand art, fire eaters, pallet furniture and a large undercover area (just in case!), beach bar and the finest glistening golden sands to sink your tootsies into or build your best ever sand palace. The sand artists will be talent scouting.

In the top spot on Thursday night sees the return of the cheekiest boys in pop the “Loveable Rogues” who packed out the beach last year.

Friday night’s headliner is still to be announced.

On Saturday the beach stage is being headlined by one of our favourite bands ‘The Hoosiers” who have just released a mighty fine comeback album.

And popular electro swing set up ‘Kitten and the Hip’ are headlining on Sunday.

Also working the beachstage will be a diverse array of new musical talent with ska/reggae sounds whilst the sun shines and pop and electro swing taking us into the twilight hours. Our resident DJ Damian Walsh will continue the party with his classic house party anthems into the small hours.

There’s no need to feel guilty about not visiting the beach whilst on the island this year! Grab your flip flops and bucket and spade and join us for a beer on the beach at the IOW Festival 2014.

See you on the sand…..

Private Beach Party in Henley

Beach Events erected a pop-up private beach at a client’s house to help deliver a ‘vintage surf themed party’ for a very lucky birthday boy.

The beach was dressed to perfection and looked amazing. Party-goers were delighted and bemused to get to wiggle their feet in the sand in November in Henley-upon-Thames.

Turtle Beach 2

“Was only expecting a couple of plastic palm trees and a couple of dodgy deck-chairs. This is amazing!” Ian Morris, Pocket-Lint

Last month saw us build our first temporary beach in a central London bar and pizzeria.

It was created as a platform to promote the Turtle Beach gaming headset, a headset that contributes to the ultimate gaming experience.

The Turtle Beach launch was attended by over 100 journalists and served as a launch pad to generate a series of coverage for the Turtle Beach brand and in particular the new ‘Call of Duty” Black Ops headset.

Newham’s own summer beach

Sep 16, 2013   //   by Steph   //   Beach Builds, Blog, Temporary Beach Build, Urban Pop Up Beaches  //  No Comments

Newham in East London, the main host borough of the London Olympics in 2012 ,also gave its young and diverse inhabitants their very own temporary sandy beach for the summer.

We built the beach by the Docklands so that with the view of the river beach goers could really believe they were ‘beside the seaside’.

The beach became the base for many of the boroughs summer events including the Waterfront Festival, Beach Volleyball, Live music, Punch and Judy and Big screen Opera. The beach has proved so popular they have already booked for next year.

Beach Events look forward to coming back!
