A Starry Night Swim 16 June 2017
Come and enjoy a magical night time swim in our heated pool, relax with a hot drink and marvel at the Dartmoor sky. Swimming starts at sunset, which is at 21.30 on the 16th June. Enjoy a relaxing swim in our lovely warm pool with water heated to 27 degrees. The pool area will be gently lit by twinkling candle lights and fairy lights and each swimmer will wear a coloured glow stick - creating a magical and calming event. After the swim there will be a range of free hot drinks, including our secret recipe mulled cider. Then it’s time to learn more about the beautiful Dartmoor sky with a guided tour of the universe by local astronomers Bryony and Rob Tilsley from Dartmoor Skies. Try out the powerful telescopes and experience fantastic views of planets, meteor showers, the Milky Way and more! Swimming is from 21.30 – 22.30 followed by hot drinks and star gazing in the park until 23.30. Tickets are £6 and season tickets, passes and vouchers are not valid for this event. Tickets will be available from the pool reception during normal opening hours and to buy on line via Eventbrite (NB Eventbrite charges a processing fee which will be added to the cost of the ticket price).
