Midsummer Skinny Dip at the Pells Pool in Lewes

This year’s Midsummer Skinny Dip will take place tomorrow (Saturday) at the Pells Pool in Lewes – whatever the weather.

Now an established Lewes institution, The Dip is scheduled a few weeks after the Brighton leg of the popular annual spectacle, the World Naked Bike Ride, and is a social and fundraiser for the ride.

Skinny Dip organiser Matthew Britnell said: “You don’t have to come on or even particularly support the ride in order to come to The Dip – in fact one of its attractions is its wide appeal. Some attendees will be ride regulars, others will not be keen on such public displays, while yet others will be trying social nudity for the first – but hopefully not the last, time.”

Advance tickets priced at £3 are available from Union Music Store in Lewes and online at edgeoftime.co.uk/bnbr. Tickets on the door are £5.
