A little weekend trivia for you, proving how resilient the British sense of humour truly is. "The town with possibly the pebbliest beach in Britain is to host a sand sculpture festival this summer. Ten thousand tons of special sand will be shipped from the Netherlands and deposited in Brighton Marina so that 60 artists from all over the world can recreate the wonders of Ancient Egypt. Organisers are confident that the sculptures, made purely from sand and water, will remain intact whichever way the wind blows, up to force 7. The highlight of the festival, which runs from July 14 to September 11, will be a 50ft-high pyramid. Sphinxes, mummies, temples, Rameses II and Tutankhamun himself will all be depicted.
