Weston will be transformed into a Caribbean paradise when a reggae-themed weekend takes over the Grand Pier.


The smells of jerk chicken and other delicious Caribbean food will waft through the air, while laid-back reggae music will play in the background.

Birmingham-based company Claudia Yap Events has teamed up with the pier and Pontins in Sand Bay to create a weekend festival which pays tribute to arguably the greatest reggae legend of all time, Bob Marley.

The Sand Bay holiday destination will provide the accommodation for people attending the entire weekend event.

Guests will be entertained by reggae and ska DJs as well as a salsa workshop on the Friday night.

The Caribbean weekender will be at the Grand Pier on August 12-13 at 7pm both evenings in the Regency Suite of the pier – which offers panoramic views of Weston’s seafront.

Tickets for the evening events are priced £10 per night or £20 when including the Caribbean buffet.

The holiday package with two nights’ accommodation at Pontins is £99 per person, based on two people sharing, and includes breakfast and dinner.

Tickets are available from www.grandpier.co.uk
