The beach is set to return to Wellingborough’s market square this summer

Published Friday, 21 June 2019

Residents are invited to put on their sunhats and join Wellingborough Council for the beach event in Market Square from Saturday 27 July to Saturday 17 August.

This free event will be open for families and youngsters to enjoy daily (apart from Sundays) between 10am and 4pm. The beach will open on Saturday 27 July, when there will be free buckets and spades available for children to build their very own sandcastles, as well as a range of activities throughout the day. There will also be a number of exciting things for youngsters including carousels and bubble displays.

Cllr Martin Griffiths, Leader of the council, said: “We are excited to be organising the beach event again following the success of last year. So many people enjoyed spending time with family and friends at the beach last summer, and I hope that they will be able to enjoy as much time in the sunshine over the next few weeks.

“The beach will follow on from the fantastic carnival and party weekend, making this summer one to remember for the residents of our borough.”

Local businesses, including face painters, children’s entertainers and cake bakers, are invited to have a stall in the market square free of charge during the event, subject to terms and conditions. For more information email:
