Escape to Braintree Village Sands this summer

This Summer, the seaside comes to Braintree Village, complete with in-centre beach, buckets and spades. 

Braintree Village Sands will give you and your family a chance to take a break from shopping, entertain the children and enjoy the Essex sun!

Braintree Village Sands

From the 1st August to 31st August, Braintree Village visitors can enjoy Braintree Village Sands.

Situated adjacent to the Havaianas pop-up, the Sands will be open from 10am-5pm throughout the summer months. While taking a break from sandcastle building, relax on a deckchair around the sand and enjoy an ice cream from the Cookies and Cream truck.

Giant deckchair competition

The giant deckchair is back! By snapping a photo of yourself on the deckchair, you’ll be in with a chance of winning a £250 Braintree Village Gift Card. 

To enter, simply follow @Braintree_Village on Instagram and upload your picture tagging @Braintree_Village and #BraintreeVillageSands. The winner will be announced on the 2nd of September.

Braintree Village Sands Bank Holiday Celebration

Create and capture memories at Braintree Village by hopping on board the campervan photobooth over the Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 24 August – Monday 26 August). The photobooth will be kitted out with a wide selection of summery props ideal to strike a pose in the glamper van!

Additionally, to bring the holiday and carnival vibes to Braintree Village, a steel band duo will be live at the centre playing great tracks to entertain all.

Meet your favourite children’s character

On the 30 August, special guests are set to visit the Village to round off the summer fun providing entertainment during the last-minute back to school rush.
