Summer Beach and Activities at Taurus Crafts

Heading to the beach in Gloucestershire has never been easier. Taurus Crafts in the Forest of Dean are once again hosting a ‘Summer Beach’ where visitors can relax, build sandcastles and play games.

The beach transforms the centre’s garden with 140 square metres of sand, a life sized sea-scape mural, buckets and spades, parasols, deck chairs and an endless supply of ice cream. It is open every day during the school summer holidays and supplemented by the fun-filled daily programme of hands-on activities.

Of particular interest to parents are the fun activity sessions that run throughout school summer holidays. Activities will include pottery, painting, jewellery making, stone carving, knitting and puppet making. The sessions are mostly drop-in in nature but it’s always worth checking the website and facebook for details or even joining the regular newsletter mail-out list.
