Seaside Hits The City

Fun seekers, families and friends enjoy Seaside in the City of Wolverhampton.

The event now in its second year was a great success attracting nearly 3000 people to Queen Square throughout the day where they could watch Punch and Judy shows, try their luck on the Hook A Duck, test their strength on the high striker and surf in the city on the surfboard simulator. With true British seaside weather during the first half of the event people were enjoying shelter in the Art Gallery with seaside themed stories and some were embracing the weather with wet sponges being thrown at people in the city stocks. Signal 107 provided a summer soundtrack for the day and Dicky Dodd donned a seaside poncho and entertained the families. Free ice cream, candy floss, balloons and lollipops ensured that all the children were happy.
