Harlech Fire and Sea Festival
Sunday May 27th – 11am – 11pm- Harlech
Not long to go now until May 27th when the Golden Torc mysteriously washes up on the beach at Harlech.
Come and be part of our epic tale.
Participate by building an amazing castle to stop the seventh wave returning for the Golden Torc.
Watch as the narrator gives the Torc to a bride for safe passage to the castle, where she is to be married.
Bring a picnic or barbecue but be a responsible participant by taking your rubbish home. Leave nothing but footprints.
For your plastic waste, add them to our fishing net sculpture for the amazing finale on 27th October.
Here’s some more info..
Are you ready for the epic sand castle making on Sunday at Harlech Beach? We asked Richard Eastwood, who will be supplying the biodegradable candles for your castles, for his Top Tips – here they are:
1. Have a plan of what you’re going to make.
2. Allow plenty of time, it takes longer than you might think.
3. Check the wind and make sure you will have a sheltered space/s for your candle/s.
4. Make a solid base. The key is to use a 1 part sand to 1 part water mix, and compact it.
5. Build up layers, compacting as you go, until you have your basic shape
6. Start carving from the top taking a little away at a time, and work down.
7. Have fun, it’s not a competition.
# At least two big buckets (one without a bottom if that’s possible), and the more little ones (like big yogurt pots) the merrier.
# A shovel or garden spade.
# Something to compact the sand, a 4″ (10cm) diameter log is brill.
# Something flat to carve with; a stiff piece of plastic or a butter knife work well.
# A desert spoon and a teaspoon
# A paint brush or two.
