Weston sand sculptures: have your say
Four new sand sculptures have been created on Weston-super-Mare's Beach Lawns at a cost of £35,000.
The sculptures are based on fairy tales and feature works showing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Hansel and Gretel.
Last year, when there was only one sculpture depicting King Kong, it cost £11,000.
The bill is being paid by North Somerset Council and the event is sponsored by five separate companies.
The rise in cost accounts for not only the extra artists' flights and accommodation, but also for night-time security which is needed as last year King Kong was destroyed by vandals.
The council hope the sculptures will attract more people to the area and said it provides the town with more cultural activities.
But do you think it is value for money?
