Seaside Special was a fixture of summer in the 1970s, a light and breezy entertainment show broadcast by the BBC from a big top at some British seaside resort or other. But like our summer temperatures, things have moved apace in the intervening years, and now our beaches and harbours thrum to live music, firepit feasts, surf competitions, vintage festivals and seafood extravaganzas. Whether it be opera by the ocean or a sand-sculpting festival, we’d like to hear about your favourite events on or near the beach.
Please include dates, details and a website if relevant. If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words.
The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on Tuesday 27 July at 9am BST
