Europe’s largest annual free beach festival returns to the cosmopolitan Brighton & Hove beachfront on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July. 2011 is set to be bigger and better than ever, with over 84,000m2 of sea, land and air sport demonstrations and exhibitions, retail stalls; live music performances and entertainment for the whole family; as well as the now internationally-recognised ‘Paddle Round the Pier’ on the Sunday afternoon.
The annual charitable fun festival, which is run by a vast army of dedicated volunteers, hopes to beat its 2010 attendance record this year and attract over 50,000 visitors over the two days. Over previous years in excess of £100,000.00 has been given to charity. This year, all proceeds and donations raised will be split equally between nominated beneficiaries: – The RNLI, the Teenage Cancer Trust and Surf Relief.
The ‘Paddle’ prides itself on offering something for everyone; from ‘just for fun’ activities to serious athletic contests; and not satisfied with just handing a cheque to charities, this year will also see the return of the Disability Accessibility Beach, following outstanding praise from visitors on its debut in 2010.
