MESSAGE FROM SANDFEST

We are truly sorry to announce that SandFest will not be taking place in 2020 but will be back dazzling brighter than ever in 2021!

No-one could have foreseen the unprecedented events of this year and we are so disappointed not to be able to bring you one of the south coast’s favourite summer beachside events.

We have spent time looking at different ways to still deliver the event this year, but several factors including event policy beyond our control makes that realistically unfeasible. Plus, safety is paramount.

Thank you to everyone for your support and we will make sure next year is the best yet!

Date for your diary 2021:
SandFest – Sunday 11th July
