Work has begun on Weston’s 14th sand sculpture festival.
Seventeen talented artists from around the world have taken to the seafront to sculpt 5,000 tonnes of sand into art.
The theme for this year’s festival is What if? and seeks to answer all manner of questions from ‘what if buildings were made of jelly?’ to ‘what if the dinosaurs returned?’
Organiser Nicola Wood said: “This year we are taking your questions and turning them into an answer we can all enjoy on one level or another.
“Of course we will be having a pop at Brexit and climate change but we will maintain our fun and quirky style with some light-hearted fun for all the family.”
