Children can enjoy the beach for free, while adults can relax on deckchairs and listen to Heart Yorkshire's 'City Beach Radio'.

There will be classic seaside amusements at an extra cost, such as a train ride, trampolines and a huge bouncy castle.

Visitors can also enjoy food and drink such as traditional seaside sweets, icy slush and hot food from a beach style BBQ grill.

Entry to the site is free and there is no booking required.
