Norden Farm's beach returns for summer holidays

Emma Billingham


A chance to feel the sand between your toes is on offer at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts with the return of its popular beach installation.

It was launched on Tuesday at the venue in Altwood Road and will be in use throughout the summer holidays, alongside a variety of craft activities and story time sessions for all the family to enjoy.

Alex Vander-Borght, marketing officer at Norden Farm, said: “We are really pleased with the launch of the beach.

“Everyone made an effort to dress up and the beach was packed from the moment it opened.”

There is a collection of totem poles on display which have been made by schoolchildren as part of the Norden Farm educational programme.

The Sun Always Shines on Turtle Beach exhibition includes a chance to try out surfing with a surf board simulator.

The beach, which was officially opened by Cllr Samantha Rayner, cabinet member for culture and communities, can be enjoyed from Tuesday to Sunday each week until September 4.
