FRED is promoting a new event for the 23rd and 24th May to rediscover Redcar as a seaside town. In
essence we are organising sandcastle competitions. 

We are very excited to be introducing sand sculpturing wizardry from the best in the UK. The World Class:

  Sand Sculptures UK

Sand Sculpturing UK are the group behind the famous Weston Super Mare Events which they have put on for the past ten years attracting over 100,000 visitors in 2014. 

They will be holding workshops over the weekend too!

Go to to check out more of their fantastic artwork.

FRED will also be holding sandcastle competitions over the two days with prizes with categories. We need stewards and volunteers to oversee the sandcastle competitions and to assist with sandsculpturing. Want to be involved? Contact us. Write to:

Many Many Many people said we wouldn't be able to do this - 

But we did! So this Summer come and celebrate our beach in Redcar with us. Be FRED 

FRED want to embrace everything that is local and encourage all groups and businesses to make themselves available to promote who they are and what they do in order to "Kick off the Summer" in Redcar.*

We encourage, sports groups, dance classes, musical and entertainment performers, community groups, schools, residents, local businesses and volunteers in and around Redcar to come and do their own thing alongside our event.* 

Showcase who you are as we are happy for you to have fun and run alongside us.

*Let FRED know if you need help with a risk assessment for any organised activities on the beach. Your activity might be subject to public liability and if you are trading you will need licencing. Write to:

Today is about our community. Redcar can be that festival town. It's a seaside destination with  much untapped potential and is the unpolished jewel in the crown of the Tees Valley.

This is our opportunity to change the fortunes in Redcar and we will grow with the support from funders, neighbourly businesses, local industry and you, because you are FRED
