Children and adults alike will be getting out their buckets and spades today for the Royal Institute for British Architects sandcastle challenge at Margate.

Teams of people (whether it be architects, builders, members of the public) can enter for free and build/create a sandcastle within 4 categories and then each category will be judged and a prize given.

Castles will be judged at 2.30 by designer Wayne Hemingway and the Mayor of Margate amongst others.
