Special events, a big wheel & the chance to win a Beach Lodge holiday!
As an award winning UK destination, it is fitting that Bournemouth is celebrating English Tourism Week (25 March – 2 April) – with a host of fun events located in some of the resort’s most picturesque locations, the return of the big wheel and a competition to win a stay in one of the brand new Beach Lodges.
On 26 March, the first ever Sandstorm
Family fun oozes from every corner in Bournemouth and the Bournemouth Bay Run is a fantastic opportunity for whole family to get active, do their bit for charity and of course, have fun. In association with the British Heart Foundation, the Bay Run takes place on Sunday 2 April and is celebrating its 35th anniversary. In honour of this, the theme for the run will be the 1980s, with runners being invited to dress up in outfits from the 80s – leg warmers and tutus galore!
Jon Weaver, Head of Resort at Bournemouth Tourism said: “Bournemouth takes pride in being a destination that offers a wide variety of invigorating and inspiring holiday experiences – from family fun on our sandy beaches to outdoor adventure, cultural delights and of course an array of award-winning festivals.
“We are thrilled to be hosting some fantastic events in honour of English Tourism Week. The Bay Run and Sandstorm are a great showcase for Bournemouth’s busy schedule of events and the perfect precursors to two of the resort’s most popular festivals – the Arts by the Sea Festival and Bournemouth Air Festival.”
There will also be an opportunity to win a 4 night stay for up to 6 people in the stunning new Bournemouth Beach Lodges – a competition specially designed to celebrate English Tourism Week. The competition will be running from 25 March to 3 April and entrants can able to enter online at www.bournemouth.co.uk/etw.*
