Sunny Southampton is absolutely glorious at the moment, and what better way to spend these summer days than lounging on a beach with a drink, listening to music and chilling out, and all with the convenience of just popping into town? Come and visit the Seaside in the Square outside Southampton Guildhall!
Right now, the 480m2 squared beach is hosting 34 days of free activities organised by GO! Southampton, a collective of local businesses, who have put together this awesome city centre seaside! The aim? To bring the community together and shout about how amazing Southampton is for visitors and locals alike!
Southampton Bloggers were the first to step onto the sand last week, and it was so fun to play in the sand, lounge on the deckchairs and beanbags and browse the shopping huts. We even got a masterclass in the Orange Rooms hut where we made our own tasty mojitos, which went nicely with the delicious canapés provided by Mettricks.
There are loads of activities planned on the beach, including yoga, volleyball, live music, sandcastle competitions, outdoor cinemas, BBQs, parties and SOOOO much more! The full list of activities can be found at www.seasideinthesquare.com. I'm going back for several events, such as the Drags and DJs Pride Beach Party, Theatre on the Beach and maybe even a Beach fitness class (yeah right, Amy).
I'm buzzing like an old fridge that something this cool is going on in Southampton. So many local businesses, restaurants and communities have come together to put on an amazing line up of events and activities on the sand for us, and you definitely feel those holiday vibes with the music, sun and sand!
