The Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown said it himself: Manchester has everything…except a beach. Well no more! This July, the North West’s biggest mobile beach will open at Heaton Park, complete with sand, deck chairs and a funfair.
Come To The Beach will be open every day from July 23 to September 4, 12pm-5pm, bringing with it over 100 tonnes of play sand promising to be return with its “biggest beach yet”. Plus, the seaside extravaganza at Heaton Park will not only be bringing a giant beach with it as there will be with traditional rides and attractions, which can be paid for with tokens.
The classic fair will be set up next to the boating lake at Heaton Park and will include a host of traditional rides for kids of all ages, from the twister, waltzers and crazy cars, to inflatables, boats and more. There will also be children’s entertainment and character appearances from the likes of Spider-Man and Encanto’s Mirabel, plus dinosaur meet and greets.
Entry to the giant beach at Heaton Park is free and you can either buy tokens for individual rides or get 25 tokens for £25 for the family to share. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays you’ll be able to buy an unlimited wristband, giving you access to all the rides for a three-hour session – either 12pm to 3pm, or 3pm to 6pm – for £11.99 per person.
