We do like to be beside the seaside

A creative arts project brought a summer spectacular event for all the family to Balby last month.

The Balby community, working with the arts project Right Up Our Street, made bunting, decorations and bags to transform Woodfield Club and car park into a seaside-themed extravaganza with trapeze and aerial performers, Punch and Judy and magic shows and a giant deckchair.



Kate Sully, arts supporter for Right Up Our Street said: “Balby by the Sea is a project that we’ve been working on for many months and involved more than 2,000 people who helped us prepare.

“We’ve seen 400 people decorating big ice creams, more than 1,000 Balby by the Sea bags were printed and over 500 people made mosaics, key rings and bunting to add to the day.

She added: “Balby by the Sea was a true celebration of all the work that has been created in Balby, exhibiting works of art created by the community and there was fun and games for the whole family to enjoy.”
