The Beach


Due to Covid-19 and social distancing, the Beach has been postponed until Summer 2022. There are still lots of events and activities young people can get involved in at Norden Farm during the summer holidays - browse the line up here.


About

The Maidenhead Beach at Norden Farm runs annually throughout the school summer holidays. Free to play on, just roll up and relax at a beachside café table while the little ones play in the sand.

Join in craft or storytelling sessions in the specially designed story den or get inspired by our Galley Goan Chill Out Lie back and enjoy projections in the fisherman’s hut or go fish in shiny waters and add your creations to the walls.

This gallery installation includes work made with local schools through Norden Farm’s Farm Out programme and with young people through our Young Creatives programme supported by the Spoore Merry and Rixman Foundation.

This year's beach is inspired by the laid back tropical paradise that is Goa!

Family films are screened throughout the holidays, and the Café Bar is open for lunch, teas, coffees, ice creams and treats. A children’s menu and special children’s picnic bags are also available.


What else is on offer at Norden Farm this summer?

This Summer take part in our Kite Festival on Sunday 5 September.

Get involved at Kite Making Workshops across the school holidays, then see your creation take to the sky!
