FROME-ON-SEA! Returns…


Frome Town Centre
BA11 1DS


Tel: 01934 837285

Life’s always a beach in Frome especially on Frome Independent market days, but head into town on Sunday August 2nd and you’ll find all manner of seaside fun with the return of Frome-on-Sea! which will see the hugely popular pop-up village green once again transformed into a pocket-hanky sized urban beach. It was so popular with small and grown-up kids alike last year that The Frome Independent team crumpled under the weight of expectation and happily gave into the pressure to bring back the beach… and the donkeys, and the deckchairs and of course the Vintage Mobile Disco will be there too!

The market producers said “We were overwhelmed with how much residents and visitors loved the beach idea last year. Families played in it and on it all day long from the moment the last grain of sand was out of the wheelbarrows, throughout clear up until there was just a meagre pile of sand left and we had to ask them to leave! Inspired as the idea was, one thing was clear this year - we were going to need a bigger beach!.” As well as the beach there will be a raft of activities to keep kids entertained – from donkey rides to a vintage hook-a-duck and Doodlebug club will be helping kids make a whole school of scary sharks!

The Frome Independent’s traders are responding to the seaside theme with their usual creativity and aplomb, providing a plethora of products inspired by or intended for the beach, from dog toys to deckchairs, prints to picnic blankets and sunglasses to sundresses. Great food is always a guarantee at the market – street food from around the world will transport visitors from Frome to the far-flung coasts of Italy, Spain, Thailand, north Africa and India Alternatively visitors will be spoilt for choice with products for a perfect British summer picnic – Somerset produced charcuterie, pies, chutneys, luxury scotch eggs, breads, bakes and pastries all washed down with lashings of homemade lemonade or Somerset cider.

The Frome Independent promise to provide all the ingredients for a great day out for a day at the seaside… all that will be missing is the sea!

Sunday 2nd August, 10am – 3pm Frome Town Centre
