About the event

Everything that the sea washes ashore has a story to tell. What is it? Where has it come from? How did it get here? Join us at Kimmeridge to search for and discover the stories behind some of our more common and unusual beach treasures. Unlock the mysteries of what a Mermaid keeps in her purse, or why some seashells have tiny holes drilled through them.

This event is weather dependent.
