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:

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.

A collaborative portrait displayed in the glass link corridor and visible from the road.
Artists from The Whitecroft Studio first created the portrait in 2012 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It is a combination of forty nine individual canvasses to produce this unique portrait.
The Whitecroft Studio are a group of artists, both local and from around the world, working together in a studio in Berkshire, benefiting from a tapestry of ideas emerging from their diverse cultural origins.
Join Lucy Wright on a creative adventure this summer.
Over four days you will create artworks to display in a magical art gallery where the artwork comes to life.
Exploring artists from around the world you will create costumes, sculpture, paintings and so much more in an art extravaganza which culminates in a final exhibition... with a twist. As we wander through the gallery the pieces will begin to tell their own stories as if under a spell.
This fun and energetic course is perfect for artists and makers of all kinds, providing a stimulating and creative way to spend the summer, come along and set your imagination free!

“I wish I could have a garden of my own, but all I see out there is concrete and pavement and more concrete...”
Errol loves plants so much that he has them growing out of every pot, pan and teacup he can find in his small flat, to the dismay of his family. He knows that plants need water, sunlight and space. They need a garden. Errol and his sister Tia search through their block of flats for the perfect space, and discover a neglected rooftop full of rubbish.
After Errol and Tia clean up the space, they imagine building a community garden, but first, they will need to convince all of their neighbours to pitch in and help. A grumpy neighbour and some garden pests try to stand in their way, but Errol is determined to make his dream a reality.
Filled with catchy songs, big ideas and a passion for plants, Errol's Garden is an interactive musical for audiences aged 3 - 11 years and their grownups.
