The free Beachcombing Summer Festival, with talks from beachcombing experts, live chats, and more, is a great way to celebrate beachcombing season. Videos and presentations were made possible by our Festival Exhibitors (below), members of Beachcombing Club, and by our presenters who generously share their time to take us on their beachcombing adventures, share their expertise, and show some of their collections.
