As reported by WLD, the new exhibition captures people’s memories and old photographs connected to the history of the Grade II Listed Edwardian building.
Recollections include when the pool was boarded over for dances during the 1940s and the community taking on ownership in 2013.
The event gave people the chance to see never-before-seen items from the Bramley Baths’ archives and visit stalls from local organisations.
Chair John Battle and chief executive David Wilford spoke about how the Baths was ‘people-powered’ by the community and their memories. They also spoke of the importance of providing swimming lessons in light of recent tragedies involving drownings in lakes and reservoirs during the recent heatwave.
There were synchronised swimming performances from the Bramley Mermaids group – check out the video below:
Vocalist Jessica Irving also performed.
All proceeds from the event went towards the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Baths.
