JASMINE HARRISON – fresh from completing her incredible record breaking 900 mile Land’s End to John O’Groats swim, Jasmine will share her adventure swimming the full length of Great Britain and how she became the youngest woman to row the Atlantic.
ELIZA RADCLYFFE – hear from 16-year-old Eliza Radclyffe who this year became the first female to win the Dee Mile in skins, a race that women were once forbidden from entering.
OMIE DALE – Swim England’s Swim Teacher of the Year 2021 and director of Swim Unity, Omie joins us to discuss the importance of inclusion, participation and access to nature and the outdoors.
ANGUS HOSKING – a member of the Lake District Divers. Come and listen to Angus talk about his journey to becoming a freediver and his mission to remove litter from the Lake District.

If that’s not enough to draw you in, we have one more treat! By purchasing a ticket for the Outdoor Swimming session, you will be in with a chance to win a Slowtide Oso changing towel to take with you on your own swimming adventures.
