A BEACH venue is planning to spring back to life over the Easter bank holiday weekend as it kickstarts its new season.

The Shoreside beach venue on Crinnis Beach in Carlyon Bay is reopening with a weekend of celebrations after what has been a very wet and windy winter on the coast.

There will be two nights of live music which will be free to attend, plus activity and wellness experiences, and food pop-ups.

The first of the free live music sessions will be with Ben Bowden and The Pards on Good Friday from 7pm. Their gig will be followed by a disc jockey.

Then, on Saturday, from 6pm, internationally-renowned DJ Kris Kool will be hosting the first in a new series of Sundowner Sessions.

Manager Jeremy Kneebone said: “We’re looking forward to another brilliant season here at Shoreside – there is such a friendly vibe, and we love bringing people together to enjoy the best of the beach, take in some brilliant live music and tuck into good food and drink.

“Shoreside offers a fun way to make the most of the coast, the lighter evenings and the warmer weather.”

As the season develops, Shoreside Sessions will take place from May to September. There will be free-to-attend live music from the local bands at the Shoreside Bar every Friday.

Alongside the entertainment, this weekend Shoreside is also welcoming the return of the beach shop and active experiences from beach yoga to watersports, sea swims and saunas.

Booking is advised for the beach yoga which will take place on Saturday between 10am and 11am. After the session this weekend, Emma from Elm Yoga, which is based at the St Austell Business Park, will be running a weekly class by the coast each Saturday, depending on the weather.

Cornwall Waverunner Safaris will be offering jet ski experiences as well as stand-up paddle boarding and kayak hire.

The saunas will be provided by Escape to the Sauna which will be organising sea swimming and a wood-fired sauna on the beach.

As part of the opening weekend, a collection of foodie pop-ups will be offering specials and treats.

The Mussel Shoal will serve up French bistro-style food on the beach, including mussels, chowder and squid.

Cake shed Manor Made, a Taste of the West Awards winner, will supply sweet treats, bacon rolls, waffles, coffee and hot chocolates.

Jasper’s Kitchen will be selling handmade stone-baked pizzas and burgers, while Crinnis Crib Hut will be focusing on handmade sandwiches, wraps, baguettes, salad boxes and baked potatoes.

Hand-made pasties will be available from Ogy1, while Stevie G’s Doghouse will be serving hot-dogs, nachos and fries.

Callestick Farm ice-cream in various flavours will be on sale as well.
