‘Summer at the Beach 2016’ followed on from the legacy of ‘A Day at the Beach’ in the then recently decommissioned Waterbeach Barracks. Run in conjunction with Cambridge Open Studios the event broadened its audience to the surrounding villages and also the city of Cambridge.

Happening over 3 weekends in July, ‘Summer at the Beach 2016’ attracted over 400 visitors and included an exhibition of paintings, sculpture, photography, illustration and millinery.

It also featured the Pop Up Café, a collaborative art event with Waterbeach Primary school, a paper aeroplane making workshop and flying competition, and a ‘Pop up Museum’ in which local residents could display their memories of the village.
