I visit the sand sculptures on Weston beach every year – this is definitely one of the best ever and this time with the theme of “what if” is is very thought provoking. The sheer size of some of the sculptures is very impressive.
Welcome to the home of the Weston Sand Sculpture Festival. Here you will find information on up-coming special events, ways to get involved, how to plan your trip and much more!
We began 2019, perhaps like many others, with a question mark! There were lots of ‘what-ifs’ and uncertain ideas, as seems to be catching in this current political climate. We all have questions without answers, curious about where the future could take us. Eureka! Along came the Weston Super Mare Sand Sculpture Festival’s light-bulb moment. What if this year’s sand sculpture theme was… WHAT IF?
WHAT IF … buildings were made of jelly?
WHAT IF … Donald Trump were Mexican?
WHAT IF … Dinosaurs returned?
WHAT IF … you were the only person on earth?
This year every sculpture will address a different question, from the obvious to the obscure, the past to the present and the desirable to the devastating. This year we want to open your imagination, and we’re sure that we will. With our usual array of activities you will get the opportunity to ask your own questions and vote for your favourite answers.
Burning questions at the ready?…
Let the games begin!
