We are very excited to be out and about this summer, spreading the outdoor swimming word around the country.

This weekend we will be at two festivals in the Lake District. Come join us!

First up is the the Keswick Mountain Festival, where we will be joining a weekend of live music, open water swimming and motivational speakers between 16 and 19 May. Come and hear from Ella Foote, contributing editor at Outdoor Swimmer magazine alongside Gilly McArthur, ice and cold water swimming advocate, on all things open water swimming, highs, lows and ice! The session on Saturday 18 May will include a Q&A with the audience.

Then on Sunday we will be at the National Trust Fell Foot Festival. Join us for a free 1-hour swim at 11am and 3pm and listen to Ella give an introductory talk about outdoor swimming at 1pm.
