Paddle Round the Pier 2017
Paddle Round The Pier (or ‘Paddle’) is The world’s biggest FREE beach and watersports festival. It runs every year on the beautiful venue of Hove Lawns – Brighton & Hove – and features the very best in water, street & urban sports, live music, kids’ entertainment, ‘have a go’ opportunities and much, much more.
Paddle has always appealed to surfers and watersports enthusiasts, but it seems we just can’t stop people wanting to get involved. With all the usual suspects, from surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, skating, windsurfing and free running, to all new sports like Surf Life Saving, land paddling, Kitesurfing and freestyle mountain biking‚ now everyone wants a piece of the pie.
With so much fantastic free fun to be had, along with stacks of great prizes, chances to try things for yourself, new bands to enjoy and mind blowing demonstrations to see, you’d be mad to miss it!
Paddle Round The Pier Celebrates Twenty Years of Making Waves!
Ocean Flooring are once again delighted to sponsor the Kids Stage at Paddle Round The Pier in association with Child Friendly Brightons' Kids’ Zone.
Paddle Round the Pier, the world’s biggest free beach and water sports festival, is back with a splash for its twentieth anniversary (July 2nd- 3rd 2016). To help celebrate this special birthday, the teams at Ocean Flooring and Child Friendly Brighton will be making the festival’s Kids’ Zone bolder, brighter and more fun than ever before.
Central to this will be the Ocean Flooring Kids Stage presenting a fabulous line-up of exciting acts performing all weekend.
Child Friendly Brighton will be on hand to host the Kids Zone featuring something for children of all ages, abilities and interests including the hotly contested sandcastle competition!
The Kids’ Zone will also offer a special Play-Tipi, nappy changing facilities and a breast feeding chill out area, making it an essential destination for families.
Alongside the Kids’ Zone, the festival is a summer weekend of water-based activities supported and surrounded by a “Paddle Village” of retail, exhibition and entertainments. The list of water-sport events grows every year. Some are fun, some are plain ridiculous, whilst others represent serious athletic challenges. What ever your reasons for visiting and celebrating Paddle - remember the whole event is run by volunteers to raise money for charity so dig deep and donate in those buckets on the gates!
“Paddle has become an incredible Brighton institution and one which goes from strength to strength,” commented Phil Gilbert, Director at Ocean Flooring. “We’re really proud to be sponsors again this year and know that the Paddle team will work hard to make it the biggest and best event yet.”
Rachel Eatock, Director at Child Friendly Brighton, added: “With more than 50,000 people attending the festival over two days, we want to make sure that the activities and facilities for families are the best they can be. The Kids’ Zone offers a little oasis where children can play and be entertained, while parents can access a range of amenities. It really helps to make the festival a hassle-free and memorable weekend of fun for everyone.”
