Life’s a beach!

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside….” the beginning of an age old favourite that rings true on these balmy summer days. Rather than taking time out of your day travelling to the coast, the team at Love Newmarket BID thought they’d bring the fun of the seaside to Newmarket for one day only!

Love Newmarket BID’s Life’s a Beach event is running on Saturday 22nd July between 10am and 4pm. There is going to be so much to see and do you’ll be glad you can stay all day!

There’ll be a real sandy beach by the clocktower, a surf simulator at the Guineas and traditional beachside entertainment; from Punch and Judy performances to Samba dancing, street entertainment and even special guests flying in. Spend some time taking a selfie with Love Newmarket BID’s GIANT deckchair and enter our competition – where the winner will bag £100. Not only that – why not get it printed at MyFotoShop on the High Street, who are offering a 50% discount on all Life’s A Beach associated photographs taken and processed on the day!
