Welcome to Sandworld
Open daily 29th March – 3rd November 2013 – COME AND SEE US!
Sandworld is Weymouth’s first sand sculpture festival, and one of only a handful ever held in the UK. Opened in 2011 by Weymouth “Sandman” Mark Anderson, and David Hicks, an aspiring sand sculptor and good friend of Mark.
Unable to hold the event on the beach, it was hard to find a suitable site until this site was “discovered” at the end of 2010, and in just 3 short months, the derelict and overgrown site was transformed into what you see today.
Our aim is to bring the best sand artists from around the world to your doorstep, so that you can see what we have seen on our travels, and share the universal joy that is sand sculpting!
We also undertake commissions, and last year we were engaged by LOCOG to create three sculptures for the beach volleyball event in Horseguards Parade for London 2012.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Which is your favourite Sci Fi Sand Sculpture?
Each year we have a “Peoples Choice” for the most popular sand sculpture on display, so let us know which your favourite is as you leave and we will add it to the count.
Children will have lots of fun when they visit seeing how many Wall-E’s they can find hiding in the displays? Tell us when you return to the shop and they could win a sweet treat.
Relax In Our Wildflower Café
Pop in and recharge your energy with lots of hot and cold drinks, ice-creams and snacks to choose from.
