In what looks set to be the UK’s ultimate urban swim festival, British Gas and British Swimming are teaming up this summer for the biggest celebration of swimming the country has ever seen.
The British Gas Big Dip will be heading to London and Manchester and aims to encourage more people to enjoy the benefits of spending time in the swimming pool.
The event will feature a 25m outdoor pool and a beach, giving families the perfect opportunity to indulge in some fun in the sun, whilst participating in a range of activities, ranging from giant slides and aqua fit to water confidence sessions and aqua zumba. Sessions to support adults and children who want to learn how to swim will also be available, and England’s volleyball team will be on hand to provide beginner and skills training and running kids and club competitions.
The British Gas Big Dip London takes place on Clapham Common from June 18th to July 17th.
The British Gas Big Dip Manchester will be held in Spinningfields from July 30th to August 29th.
Tickets for the British Gas Big Dip cost just £3 per adult, which includes free admittance for up to two children aged 12 and under, making it a cheap fun-filled event for all the family.
