It’s a Dog’s Life – Paula Zimmerman

Paula gained a degree in Art and Art History at Scarborough University in 1998 as a mature student.

Her career as an artist began as a ceramicist making quirky animals. She became interested in painting, initially as an abstract painter. Now she enjoys working with colour design and animals. She combines both in her animal portraits.

Beach Life

A special installation designed to be a relaxing sensory delight for everyone, inspired by the beach huts of Goa, featuring work created by local schools.

Get involved in designing (on the floor) and making fluttering kites which we’ll fly over the summer.

Ed’s Industry – Ed Waller

Edward’s photos convey abstract impressions through the unusual angles on the places and objects that are around us. His early training as a graphic designer imbues his vision of the everyday as art.

Ed’s current style of painting is evocative and powerful. Accomplished mostly in black and white, his paintings are stark statements of fact.

The Maidenhead Beach

The ever popular Maidenhead Beach is back, all summer long – this year inspired by the laid back tropical paradise that is Goa.

The Beach has been designed and handmade by Norden Farm with the help of the community.

It’s free to play on every day with beachside tables available for snacks and lunch from the Cafe Bar (including children’s picnic bags).


Peel yourself off the beach and get creative with your little ones in our daily Beach Craft sessions:

Arts and Crafts (45 mins) | £5 per child Monday – Saturday 10.30am

Or sit back and relax with them in the story den for our Storytelling sessions:

Storytelling (20 mins) | £2 per person Monday – Saturday 1.30pm and 3.30pm


For maximum chill out, explore the indoor sensory space in our Gallery. It is designed for children with SEND and features work from local schools. Get involved with decorating the floor and making kites.


All of this and a full programme of family films and live events, the Goan Beach is the perfect place to pitch up this Summer.


We love to welcome you and your children here at Norden Farm. However, please be aware that, as we serve hot drinks and food, we do ask that children don’t run in the Café Bar area and are kept close to their adults when on the Beach. Do ask us for children’s books or free colouring sheets if your little ones need some off line distraction.

Dean Piacentini – Places, Traces, Spaces

Dean fell under the spell of Abstract art as a bass playing art student in the late 1970s.

He tries to generate a series of visually interesting juxtapositions, which lead to a sense of wholeness and recognition as the piece finally slips into view.

Meet the Artist for his Private View on Friday 18th May between 6pm – 8pm.

SocialArts Exhibition
