Event Details

The very first Angus Coastal Festival held ion 2018, was so warmly received, that a second 11 day event will run between 13 and 23 September 2019.  More than 700 people of all ages enjoyed walks, talks, exhibitions, practical nature conservation and beach cleans during the 2018 festival.  Interest in the fantastic Angus coast certainly hasn’t waned; this year we hope to provide even more opportunities for you to explore our undiscovered coast.

Who needs an excuse to explore Angus’ amazing golden beaches, rock pools, estuaries, sand dunes and flower-strewn cliffs?  Not us!  Join us as we search for whales and dolphins, migrant birds, coastal plants, geological surprises and even edible seaweed.  Learn about marine litter, #LitterCUBES and how you can play a part in safeguarding our seas.

Angus Doors Open Day runs between 14-15 September providing an opportunity to learn not only about the coast’s special natural history, but also its cultural and built heritage.

Whatever your interest, come and explore some of the hidden – and not so hidden – corners of the Angus coast.  We look forward to welcoming you.

The festival is being led by the Tayside Biodiversity Partnership’s Marine & Coastal Group and events run for 11 days from the 13th to 23rd September. A number of events run for the entire month of September. Please see the PROGRAMME OF EVENTS for more information, confirmed locations and booking instructions. Almost all of the events are free, so please book a place quickly.
