The National Sandcastle Competition  is back at the wonderful Westward Ho! beach. What could be better than a Summer's day out at the beach with your friends or colleagues building your dream sand sculpture and at the same time raising vital funds for North Devon Hospice!

Design it, plan it, build it, stand back and admire it! 

Whether your sand structure is artistic, scientific, complicated or's the taking part that counts!

First, Second and third prizes in the adult competition and winner of the children's competition will receive a very special glass trophy made by Dartington Crystal.

So grab some team mates and join the fun. There's a competition for children 16 years and under too and plenty of entertainment and music all day long!
