It’s Aloha as The Maidenhead Beach at Norden Farm returns!

Be transported to 1950’s Hawaii as Norden Farm Centre for the Arts’ Beach returns, designed and built by hand by the Norden Farm technical team with help from students of Uxbridge College. Everyone is invited to The Grand Opening, taking place on Tuesday 25 July from 10am. Admission is free. 

The beach will be officially opened by Lead Member for Culture and Communities Cllr Samantha Rayner at 10.30am, with a Hawaiian Leis cutting ceremony.

Little ones and their carers can join in a free Little Wrigglers session in the foyer at 10am led by Rachel Breeze. Then come and meet Elvis on the sand for some beachside entertainment. The launch will feature a prize for the best Hawaiian or Elvis fancy dress.

You can also capture your costume creations in the Hawaiian photobooth with plenty of props to add to the effect. There will be free activity and colouring sheets and free tropical juice drink for children. Don’t miss the chance to enter a free prize draw to win a family ticket for one of Norden Farm’s summer family shows or films.

The beach will be open every day from Tuesday 25 July – Sunday 27 August between 10am - 4pm. Storytelling Sessions in the airstream trailer and Beach Craft sessions will be taking place on Mondays - Sundays throughout the summer.

Take life at a gentler pace in the Gallery’s indoor Secret Cove where you can decorate fishes of the deep and add them to the ocean walls. Get comfy and listen to the sounds of the waves and dolphin chatter while admiring the beautiful birds and tropical textiles or explore the sensory cave made specially for children with SEND.

The birds have been created as part of this year’s Norden Farm Beach Craft project with children from local schools; Furze Platt Junior School, Cookham Dean, Cookham Rise, Boyne Hill Infant School, Wessex Primary School, St Luke’s Primary School, Riverside Primary School, Furze Platt Infant School, Woodlands Park Primary School and St Mary’s Primary School.

In addition to a packed line up of family shows and films, Norden Farm are hosting some free taster workshops for pre school children this summer. Give Tutus a try, the new pre-school ballet class led by dancer Abbi Lewin on Wednesday 2 August, before it starts in September. You can also take part in Splat! Messy Play, a new class for ages 6 months plus on Thursday 10 August and Tuesday 22 August.

The Café Bar is open all day, where you can enjoy an ice-cream or lunch at beachside tables. A children’s menu and special children’s picnic bags are also available.

Don’t miss out on being the first to welcome the summer to Maidenhead and try out Norden Farm’s Hawaiian Elvis themed beach!
