T4 on the Beach - 1st July 2012
T4 on the Beach is a massive music party on a beach in North Somerset.
Every year close to 50,000 revellers descend on Weston-super-Mare’s seafront for a big, summer Sunday of musical joy. The whole show is hosted by our excellent T4 presenters and is broadcast live on C4 throughout the afternoon.
In the past we’ve had everyone from Lily Allen to the Pet Shop Boys, from Girls Aloud to McFly, and from Dizzee Rascal to Florence and the Machine, playing out on the beach across two stages. > Add to that loads of celeb guests like Gok Wan, the Inbetweeners, Louie Spence and the casts of Skins and Misfits.
As well as a disco where you can get up close and personal with the stars while they DJ, some exciting funfair rides, loads of food and drink, and the beautiful, shimmering sea, and you’ve got a great day ahead. This year we’ve got all this and more with some exciting plans afoot. Keep your eyes peeled.

Sand Sculpture Festival 1st June -9th September 2012
The nights are drawing out, the days are (kind of) hotting up and the long lazy summer beckons (yeah right!). One thing is for sure, it’s almost time for the annual Weston-super-Mare Sand Sculpture festival!
Rest assured the festival will be back on the beach at Weston in 2012, and we promise that it will be bigger, better and braver than ever before!
For the past six years the festival has entertained, excited and inspired over 250,000 people - and this year will be no exception with the addition of special events, extra children's activities, live demonstrations and many ways to get involved and create your very own works of sand art.
This year’s theme will be “Fun and Games”; revisit games from your childhood and marvel at the toys of today. See your favourite hobbies, stories and past-times transformed into giant sand art. From arcade amusements and board games to the wide world of sport, nothing will be forgotten - there really will be something for all ages, genders and backgrounds! If there’s something you’re desperate to see, go to our 'Get Involved’ page and tell us!
So pick up your bucket and spade and head to the beach. We’ll see you there.
DON’T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!!!
