Sand, deck chairs, buckets and spades and ice cream will all be present in Ealing when the pop-up beach comes to Ealing Green on Friday, 12 and Saturday, 13 August.

There'll also be a children’s activity bus travelling around the borough in the summer holidays. It will be free to hop aboard the bus and children can play giant chess, snakes and ladders and other games or do some arts and craft work.

The activity bus will be based at the following locations from 11am to 4pm:

Southall Square, UB1 3HF on Wednesday, 27 July
The Mount, Acton W3 9NW on Wednesday, 3 August
Ruislip Road, Greenford on Wednesday, 10 August
Ealing Town Hall forecourt on Wednesday, 17 August

The public will also have the chance to share their artistic skills to help create a giant collage using fabric and paper outside Ealing Town Hall. Professional artists will also be on hand to offer hints and tips as people try out their painting skills on a large canvas.

The art events will take place every Friday in August outside Ealing Town Hall from 10am to 4pm.

Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council said: “These are fun, free events and the pop-up beach will be a great way to enjoy the seaside without having to travel to the coast.”

The events have been planned by Ealing Council’s economic regeneration team using funding from the New Homes Bonus – a grant paid by central government to local councils for increasing the number of homes in their area.
