Parties & Group Booking


Whole Site Private Hire (Evening)

We are fully booked for the 2019 season!

We offer hire of the Lido facility for evening functions on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the season. Evening hire starts from £350, for more details and availability please call 01242 524430 or email admin@sandfordparkslido.org.uk.

With this option, you have the choice to hire just the main pool or also the small pool area.

Small Pool Parties

We offer exclusive use of the Children’s Pool on Saturday and Sunday mornings between 10-11am. The earliest entry time is 09:30 for pre-party set-up. Entry to the water is not permitted until 10am and everyone needs to be out of the water by 11am.

The rate is £90 which covers up to a maximum of 20 swimmers - For safety reasons our lifeguards operate a 1:20 ratio (1 Lifeguard to 20 Swimmers), if you plan to have more than 20 swimmers to the party, you will require an additional Lifeguard at a cost of £30. (Please note, 20 swimmers includes both adults and children)

Please email admin@sandfordparkslido.org.uk for more information.

This price includes the option to stay on site until 12 noon - but we do politely request that guests who wish to remain on site after 12 noon pay the relevant public entrance fees to do so.

Should you wish our cafe to provide your party food, please email our Cafe Manager at monika@sandfordparkslido.org.uk, who can discuss the available options with you, at an additional cost to the small pool party hire. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring picnic/party food with you.

Please note that refunds can only be given in the event of an extreme weather warning, otherwise it might be possible to hold the party until another available date in the season. Refunds cannot be given for cancellations.

Group Bookings

A group booking can be made during our normal opening hours for a minimum of 8 people. This option is ideal if you are visiting the Lido in a large group, or if you are planning a party but do not want exclusive use of the swimming pool. Please note there is no designated area for private swimming with group bookings. Should you wish our cafe to provide your party food, please email our Cafe Manager at monika@sandfordparkslido.org.uk.

For a group of 12 people or more, the entry rate will be £2.80 per person. Once you have made a booking, please email swim@sandfordparkslido.org.uk to let us know when you intend to visit - please ensure you book at least 48 hours in advance, so that we can provide adequate staffing.
