Dig out your bucket and spade… ART on the BEACH is coming!

Art on the Beach

The Basics:

Sunday 6th June, 2.30 – 5.00pm approx. 

What’s it all about?

A fun afternoon which challenges teams to turn an area of Vazon Bay into a public gallery using anything you can find on the beach.  The only limits are a beach bucket and spade and your imagination! 

Who is it for?

Anyone!  There will be two categories: families and businesses.  Find a group of up to ten friends or colleagues, and then get in touch with us to register. 

What will happen on the day?

You will have just two hours to devise and make your creation using natural and man-made materials found on the beach.  There will be a team of local artists, led by Eric Snell, who will be on hand to offer advice and support, as well as creating some work of their own during the afternoon.  Eric and his team will be judging the entries at 5pm and announcing the winners. 

Are there any rules?

  • Beach buckets and spades only.
  • Materials found on the beach only – you can’t bring any materials with you.
  • Any litter used as part of the piece must be removed at the end of the day.
  • Teams of between 2 and 10 people from either a business or a family.
  • Judges’ decision will be final. 

Do we need to bring anything?

Bring along anything you would normally want for an afternoon out at the beach… sun cream, drinks, hats, sunglasses, something to eat, bucket and spade… the kiosks in the area will be open as usual.  We’ll also be creating an online gallery for our website and Facebook pages so you might want to take some photos for us too. 

Sounds great!  Sign me up:
