Samson and Delilah will be on the hunt for the king, or queen, of the purrfect sandcastle.
The SAFC mascots will be hosting a special children’s sandcastle competition at Roker beach on Thursday, May 28.
We’re confident that the young people of Sunderland and the wider North East will be able to impress us with their creative flair.Samson
Aspiring architects and beachfront builders are being asked to bring their buckets and spades and report to the Beach House bistro, overlooking the seafront, at noon.
All entries will be given until 2.30pm to complete their creations, with the winner receiving four tickets to the Black Cats Family Fun Day at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, July 4.
Samson said: “We’re confident that the young people of Sunderland and the wider North East will be able to impress us with their creative flair. We may even see a makeshift mansion or two.”
The sandcastle competition, which is open to all ages, is one of a number of activities taking place at the Beach House during half-term, with arts and crafts also offered daily from Bank Holiday Monday to Friday, May 29.
The venue, operated by 1879 Events Management, will also be serving a range of main meals, snacks, desserts and signature ice cream sundaes, from 10am until 4pm, throughout the week.
