Families that just love to be beside the seaside need look no further than their doorsteps this August as Coalville by the Sea returns.
Extended to be a two day event for 2018, the grass area at Needhams Walk will transform into a sand-filled coastal scene.
This is a free North West Leicestershire District Council event.
A giant sandpit with buckets and spades will be hours of fun for children who can dig, build and bury between 11am and 4pm.
When not building sandcastles, families can enjoy entertainment around the sandpit.
There will also be refreshments on sale including plenty of ice cream!
Music will be provided by Hermitage FM and all people need bring is something to sit on – and plenty of sun cream if the sun is shining.
Needhams Walk can be found between Belvoir Road and the town centre car park off High Street, Coalville.
