Wild about Wrecks!

Come and join us on the beach to listen to stories about ship wrecks and create your own ship-themed beach art.

Come and join our fun and creative story tellers Jeannie May and Tilly Riley on the beach to listen to stories about ship wrecks that are inspired by actual wrecks that exist along the Tees to Tyne Coast!

Families will take part in a beach and shore-based scavenger hunt with visual artist Nicola Balfour to collect materials to create ship-themed beach art on the beach.

This event is for families with children aged 5 years and above. Access to Hawthorn Hive Beach is via Hawthorn Dene, or via the England Coast Path – walking north from Easington Nature reserve, or walking south from Noses Point in Seaham.

Please come dressed for the weather and bring drinks / snacks as there are no facilities on the beach.

This event is free to attend: booking essential.

This event is part of SeaScapes and is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
