During these two days, the pool and café will not be accessible to the public. However, season ticket holders will have exclusive access to swim between 7:00 and 9:00 AM BST on both days.

We understand The six-part series, entitled “The Death of Bunny Munro”, is based on an adaptation of Australian singer and writer Nick Cave’s 2009 dark comic novel.

The lido expressed excitement over the opportunity, highlighting that the shoot will bring “significant financial incentives.” These funds are planned to be reinvested into improving the lido’s “facilities, equipment, programme, and staff.”
