The Warren on the Beach is situated east of the Pier, next to the Volks Railway Aquarium Station, offering up another four weeks of theatre, cabaret, comedy and family shows, alongside an outdoor stage, street food and bars.

The indoor-outdoor site is free to enter, allowing beach-goers to pop in for a drink at one of the sun-drenched bars, or check out free entertainment on the outdoor stage.

Ticket buyers can enjoy live entertainment within a Covid secure venue, The Oil Shed.

Bo Peep needs you and your family’s help to save her little lambkins from danger in time for bed! A perfect theatre introduction for your little ones with an interactive story and sensory learning. Look out for a flock of woollen puppets, original music and sheep themed silliness.

And join our two lovable clowns as they weeble and wobble their way through a chaotic picnic for We All Wobble from August 7-10 at 10.30am and 12.30pm.

The life-sized roly-poly spectacle is full of hilarious slapstick, near misses, and messy chaos for the whole family.

Falling hither and thither, these human sized clown weebles never topple.
