About the event

Create marine-themed sculptures out of sand and other natural materials found on the beach.  From starfish to minke whale, there are plenty of amazing creatures in the Irish Sea to inspire you.  Remember to bring your wellies and spades!

Learn more about the critters living in rock pools with one of our experts on a Rockpool Ramble.  

Join in a whale, dolphin and porpoise-spotting activity or find out more about coastal birds on one of our birdwatching walks.
