Looking for an unconventional start to your Christmas morning, or want a way to work up an appetite for lunch? Join the plucky bunch taking part in the annual Christmas Swim at Sandford Parks Lido.

Please note, this event has now been cancelled.

The bravest of souls will line up once again to take the plunge at Sandford Parks Lido for the Christmas Swim event of 2021.

Whilst most people will opt to spend the morning loafing in their best pyjamas or glamming up in their finery, Gloucestershire’s dare devils will be stripping off to submerge themselves in the chilly water at Sandford Parks Lido.

Drawing in hundreds of brave or simply bonkers swimmers every Christmas, the event is a highlight in the Gloucestershire calendar.

Bound to be unlike anything else happening on Christmas Day, this wacky event will surely provide something to talk about when warming up over dinner.

With fancy dress optional, the event is only for adults due to the temperature of the water.
