Join the party and celebrate the opening of Henshaws Urban Beach

The Urban Beach is a fantastic event, held in Knaresborough every August. When the sun is shining it plays host to hundreds of children and parents every day. The atmosphere is magical with live music, face painting and other arts and crafts activities on offer.

Henshaws will once again transform their Arts & Crafts Centre into an oasis of family fun from Sunday 5th – Sunday 26th August. The Urban Beach is free to visit and is open daily from 10.00am to 4pm.

Visitors will be able to enjoy treats and refreshments from Henshaws café including wood-fired pizzas , ice creams,  hot food and drink and children’s picnics to enjoy on the sand.

Once again, the beach is hosting daytime and evening events as part of Knaresborough feva 2018. Entertainment on offer includes: live music from Alehouse Rock Band and Edwina Hayes; performance poetry by Sam Illingworth; sets by DJ Rory Hoy and DJ Trev; crafting and storytime with Painting Pots; and the March of the Mermaids.

Maria Dawbarn, centre manager at Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre said: “The beach is the number one thing to do here in Knaresborough during the summer, with activities every day to keep children (and parents) entertained and happy.”

The Urban Beach Opening Party starts at 12pm on Sunday 5th August.
