Christmas Day Swim

We look forward to welcoming you to Sandford Parks Lido on Friday 25th December for a quick dip in the main pool before heading home to warm up and have your Christmas dinner.

The swim will take place promptly at 11am and you will need to be at the lido gates from 10.30am to sign a disclaimer form. The water will be extremely cold and this is an adults only event (age 17+). The event will finish at 11.30am.

There is no charge to enter this event but there will be collection buckets at the entrance raising money for Sandford Lido Ltd, the charitable trust that operates the lido. Spectators are welcome.

The 2010 event was cancelled due to the extreme weather and we will post here if we have issues this year.  The water temperature in 2011 was 45F/7.2C and if you have not witnessed this event before you can watch a video below.

If you are planning to take part please assist us by printing off the liability form below and bringing the completed form with you on the day.

Help us to continue this historic event by donating to our charitable trust.  Donation buckets will be available at the reception or you can send a text message with the following LIDO13 £5 to 70070 to donate directly to Sandford Parks Lido.
