The ever popular Maidenhead Beach is back, all summer long – this year inspired by the laid back tropical paradise that is Goa.
Join us for the Grand Opening (with free entertainment) on Tuesday 24 July from 10.30am
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).
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.
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 – Friday 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
Join us for the Grand Opening on Tuesday 24 July from 10.30am:
The Community Kite Festival is a free event taking place in Boyn Grove Park (Punt Hill) on Sunday 2 September – everyone welcome! The festival runs from 1pm – 4pm.
Bring your kite creations and join our team to fly kites on the hill!
Get involved at Kite Making Workshops across the school holidays this summer, then see your creation take to the sky!
In these drop-in sessions our practitioners will guide you through the process of making either the Patang Kite – the Indian Fighter Kite, or a classic Trapezoid Kite.
Workshops are suitable for all the family and tickets are £3 per person.
A photographer representing Norden Farm may be present throughout the summer holiday at The Maidenhead Beach.
These images may be published by Norden Farm in the press and on social media platforms. Images may also be used for external distribution and used in marketing materials including, but not limited to, brochures, flyers, adverts and banners.
If you are visiting The Maidenhead Beach and would rather not be in our photos, please speak to our Box Office team when you arrive.
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.
Take a look at the full summer programme here:
An interactive digital arts space; part of Quest Family Fest, the Norden Farm Family Arts Festival.
Keep your eye on the website for updates on events and workshops.

John Percy is an abstract artist who works in painting and collage with a number of themes dealing with aspects of choice, decision and chance combined with elements of entropy and chaos.
This exhibition is part two of last year’s Metaphorically Speaking. Here he shows us a limited selection of favourite larger abstract paintings which scan back over a longer period.
