The first program of events this Saturday begins with a Dino Day family activity on Seaton Beach from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., followed by Meet the Characters – Lifeguards and The Birds on the promenade from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Look for musicians and singers in various places between noon and 2 p.m.

A pedal velodrome and Scalextric will be in the outdoor playground on the Seaton promenade from 11 am to 4 pm.

An exhibition of large bubbles will also take place on the ball between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

A major attraction later during the summer activities program will be a traveling piece of art called In Memoriam, which will serve as a temporary memorial to all those who have been lost during the COVID-19 pandemic and a tribute to NHS staff who risked or lost their life.

Featuring 120 flags made from NHS sheets arranged in the form of a medical logo, it is by internationally renowned artist Luke Jerram and will be located in Seaton from August 20-30.

Summer at Seaton is organized by Hartlepool Borough Council with government funding for the reopening of the High Street Safely Fund, provided by the European Regional Development Fund.

An event map, event list, and printable activity pack can also be downloaded.

The council is also hosting a fun dinosaur hunt for families in Hartlepool as part of a Hide-a-seek-a-saurus activity.

Daily clues to the location of the hidden dinosaurs are posted daily on the Get Hartlepool Active Facebook and Instagram pages from July 19 to 30, excluding weekends.
