Summer is finally here which means ice creams on the beach, lazy evenings in the sun and long weekends with friends. It also means Skidmores will be holding its BIG SUMMER SALE! But did you know that Weston-super-Mare has a whole host of events lined up this summer?

If you have never been to the Weston Sand Sculpture Festival, you are really missing out on one of the best attractions in town! Artistic director Nicola Wood confirmed this year’s theme “It’s a Topsy Turvy World” which was chosen by the public and entails all manner of weird and wonderful artistic creations. From giant mice to upside down houses, there is something for everyone at this fantastically inclusive event.

For those who need to entertain children and love the idea of adding quirky skills to their CV, premier circus and street performers Flying Colours will be holding circus skills workshops on Cowslip Lane from 1-2 July 2017. Brush up on your juggling skills, learn to hula or master the art of unicycling to impress your friends.  

No summer is complete without at least one or two G&Ts, and luckily this year Weston-super-Mare has its very own Gin Festival on the Grand Pier! Sample a huge variety of different gins from big name brands to independent microdistilleries, attend masterclasses or hear the experts discuss their gin journeys. Ticket prices also include a Grand Pier branded gin glass along with a gin and tonic to get your started.

If music is more your thing, head to one of the free music events held in Grove Park every Sunday from May until the end of September. These great concerts feature brass bands, silver bands, choirs, and opera singers, so gather some friends, pack a picnic and some bubbly and relax to the sounds coming from the bandstand.

Movie buffs and comic enthusiasts simply cannot miss the Stars of Time Film and Comic Con at The Tropicana on 27th and 28th August. This is a great opportunity to go all out on your cosplay costume, pick up movie props, collectibles and merchandise and meet some of your favourite TV and film stars.
