Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Urban Seaside Special is a means to boost town centre activity and use the town centre space in a different way. Town Centres belong to everyone; they are the heart of a community. We're keen to source everything that is needed locally and, showcase the vast and varied talents of local people, If all goes to plan, it will be a spectacular day for Goole’s people and its businesses.

What we'll deliver:

  • Transform the town centre of Goole into a beach
  • Install a super sandy seaside area with play space for everyone
  • Use a soundstage as a focal point for performance
  • Theme the event across town centre businesses
  • Cafés will provide outdoor bbq's and dress their premises
  • Create a unique beach setting finale for the adult & youth triathlon
  • Work with business to promote the event
  • Host dancing, drama, singing, sports, fun exercise and so much more

Why it's a great idea:

Last year we trialled Beach Day as a means to boost town centre activity and use space in a different way. It was super fun for everyone! The event was a renowned success, enjoyed by over 5,000 people and a massive highlight of the year for Goole. Goole is Britain’s most inland working Port right in the very heart of the town centre. Local people are familiar with their industrial urban realm of cranes, water and ships prompting the idea of a festival that not only encourages town centre visitors but also promotes family fun in the heart of the community.

The event brings together three community strands, residents, visitors and business, not only at the event but throughout the ideas, organisation and planning stages too.

Summertime Festival is Goole's way of working together to not only boost trade and interest in the town but to also share and experience a great time together.

Steps to get it done:

  • Via a small dedicated working group with the support of East Riding of Yorkshire Council Officer time
  • Local volunteers and community groups will also support delivery of the event
  • The event requires funds to pay for the installation of a beach and a variety of other activities and attractions
  • Through collaboration, energy, commitment, enthusiasm, smart planning, networking and sponsorship

There's loads more to say!

Goole is Britain’s most inland working Port situated right in the very heart of the town centre.

Local people are familiar with their industrial urban realm of cranes, water and ships prompting the idea of an event that not only encourages town centre visitors but also promotes family fun in the heart of the community.

Goole Triathlon Group is celebrating their tenth anniversary this year. We're delighted to have organised the finish of both the adult and juniors triathlon in the pedestrian plaza during our seaside special.

All we really want to say is help us to fund Goole's super sunshine summer event of the year then come on down and enjoy it with us!
