Swimming Showcase Event 

We're going back to the heyday of Victoria Baths for a fun swimming event in the Gala Pool, with balcony seating for spectators and the chance to explore Victoria Baths out of hours.

This is a special event to raise funds for ongoing restoration work at Victoria Baths. 

Featuring swimmers from Manchester Grammar School and Manchester High School swimming teams. Both of these schools used to hold their swimming galas at Victoria Baths, as did many other local schools. We're also delighted to be joined by Stretford Water Polo club who will provide a demonstration of the sport of Water Polo.

Thank you to Simon Jones of Manchester Grammar School for his help co-ordinating this event.  

Programme for the evening:


Doors open 6.30pm 

Swimming Showcase event 7.30pm

A licensed bar will be open before and after the swimming event until 9.30pm. Visitors may walk around the building before and after the concert.

Alternatively, you may like to take a guided tour of the building with one of Victoria Baths' Tour Guides, starting at 6.40pm and finishing at 7.20pm. This tour is open to all ticketholders - please book a free place with your tickets so we have an idea of numbers.

We have several spaces for wheelchairs and those who can't manage steps on the poolside at the back of the Gala Pool for the event itself - please advise when booking if you require one or more of these spaces and we will reserve them for you.
