One of Weston’s most popular tourist attractions will stay open for longer than normal this year.
The Sand Sculpture Festival on Weston beach attract thousands of day-trippers and holidaymakers.
The annual event was due to close in September or October, but organisers have extended its run.
Organiser Nicola Wood said: "It is always sad to say goodbye to the sculptures at the end of the season so we are delighted to announce an extension."
The festival will end on November 3, allowing families to visit during the half-term holiday, from 10am-5pm.
