St Luke's Swimming Pool - operated by Freedom Leisure in partnership with Brighton and Hove City Council - will reopen on Monday, November 3 at 7am.

The facility closed in December 2013 due to storm damage and has since benefitted from significant investment work to restore the facility to its former Victorian glory.

To celebrate the re-opening, Freedom Leisure has laid on a jam- packed weekend of activities for the whole family to enjoy.

On Friday, November 7, there will be a disco swim session from 6pm until 9pm with music. All ages are welcome but children aged eight or under must be accompanied in

the water by an adult aged 16 or over. Entrance cost just 10p per person - the same price as when the facility first opened in 1903.

Freedom Leisure is also inviting families to swim for just 10p on Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8 from 9am until 6pm.

Local residents are being invited to come along and enjoy homemade cakes, treats, tea and coffee as well.

Jon Hodgson, Freedom Leisure centre manager, said: 'We're looking forward to showcasing the upgraded facility to the community.

'St Luke's is a much loved venue with some beautiful, original features and the renovation will ensure the facility can remain open for many years to come.

'There will be Victorian inspired décor throughout the facility during the first week of reopening and we hope customers will embrace the theme by coming along in fancy dress.'
