Hire Our Pool For Your Event

Please read this whole of this page before trying to book a Private Hire

As a Registered Charity, 1184090 we want our visitors and local community to use the pool as much as possible. In addition to the pool timetable and special events, the pool is available for hire outside our normal opening times.

This means we can hire the Pool for private use with qualified Lifeguards.

Useful Points

If the time and date on the calendar says ‘booked’ or ‘busy’ it means that slot is booked, please try another date and or time.

Children’s parties are popular at the pool and come with use of the floats and inflatables used in the fun session.

We like to limit the number of swimmers to 35. If it’s a Children’s Party, parents, guardians, and spectators are always welcome in or out of the Pool.

Pool Temperature:
We try to maintain the Pool water between 25 and 28°C BUT this can vary with the ambient outside temperature. We are after all an open-air pool!

The link to your phone for payment becomes due upon receipt of our request.

For schools and charities, we reduce the charges listed above to £80 and £150 for one and two hours respectively.

Please mention if you qualify for this status in the notes section of the online Booking Form you complete with your Registered Charity or School URN number.
