The Force will be strong at the (inter)stellar Bramley Baths during half-term!

Budding Jedi Knights will get to swim in a pool with inflatable lightsabers and Death Star beach balls as the beautiful Edwardian Baths are transformed into a galaxy far far away …

John Williams’ iconic blockbuster Star Wars soundtrack will be playing to help get people to get into the spirit, alongside lots of intergalactic decorations and posters – and the chance for youngsters to have their photo taken with a standee of dastardly Imperial Forces.

Bramley Baths Operations Manager Courtney Harrison said:

“We’re all massive Star Wars fans here at Bramley Baths and, alongside the launch of the latest movie in cinemas that week, this seemed like too good a chance to miss for a galaxy of half-term fun.”

Bramley Baths Chair John Battle said:

“The Force is strong here in Bramley. We hope lots of young Jedi will enjoy re-enacting the film in Bramley Baths’ warm water, so that when they grow up they will remember how good it feels to stretch your legs at your local swimming pool.”

The ‘May the Splash Be With You’ events run on Tuesday, May 29 and Friday, June 1 2018 (1.30pm-3pm). Advanced booking and payment is essential, either by visiting the baths reception or by calling (0113) 256 0949. Tickets are Adults £4.50, Children £2.50. LeedsCard discounts apply.

The event is part of a week of special half-term activities for children and families, including crash courses to help children get more confident in the pool, and swims designed for younger children (under 8 years), family fun swims and inflatable swims.
