1 MAY – 1 JUNE 2025

A national outdoor and digital creative programme exploring and activating the UK’s coastlines, across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Discover, Reflect, Imagine

Beach of Dreams is more than just a festival; it’s a journey through the diverse landscapes and rich histories of our coastal regions. Each step along the shore is a celebration of the natural beauty and cultural heritage that make our coastlines unique. Through art and community, we reflect on our past, celebrate our present, and imagine new possible climate futures for our coastlines.
