The North Devon Hospice National Sandcastle Competition had sat dormant for many years, but it is back! Westward Ho! has an amazing beach for this, there are some spirited builders here and access to the old construction crews from past events. The Hospice is a wonderful cause, so for the 2nd year the National Sandcastle Competition is back at Westward Ho! 


There will be a separate Sandcastle Competition for Adults and also Junior/Kids running at the same time. It will be held on the beach in front of the slip way/promenade and will be visible from all around the village. Event HQ will be on the Promenade. There will be live entertainment throughout the day to keep the constructors spirits high. First, Second, Third adults and first, second and thirds kids will receive a very special glass trophy that has been specially made by Dartington Crystal, Torrington.
