Media release - issued 15 Jul 2021

Remaining weekend tickets for Aldershot Lido on sale from 9pm tonight (15 July)

With temperatures expected to reach 29 degrees this weekend, Aldershot Lido is anticipating its first busy weekend of the summer.

With temperatures expected to reach 29 degrees this weekend, Aldershot Lido is anticipating its first busy weekend of the summer.

The popular outdoor pool is currently operating under Covid restrictions until this coming Monday 19 July, with only 1,500 visitors permitted into the venue - around 50% of its usual capacity.

For the first time this year, tickets to the lido are available to purchase online in advance, and the daily advance allocation for this weekend has already been snapped up by customers eager to make the most of the good weather.

With the lido likely to be extremely popular this weekend, Rushmoor Borough Council and Places Leisure (who run the lido on the council's behalf) have taken the decision to release all the remaining tickets for this Saturday and Sunday (a further 700 for each day) for sale online at 9pm this evening, (Thursday 15 July).

Tickets can be purchased through the Aldershot lido website.

With these remaining tickets expected to sell-out very quickly, this does mean that full capacity will have been reached and, for this weekend only, tickets will not be available to purchase on the gate.

In the past, some customers have arrived later in the day hoping to gain entry as other people leave, but no gate admissions at all will be available this weekend.

Maurice Sheehan, Cabinet Member for Operational Services at Rushmoor Borough Council said, "We know that selling all tickets in advance will leave those who miss out disappointed, but we feel it is the best way of managing the huge demand for the pool this weekend when we are still operating with a reduced capacity under Covid restrictions. It will enable us to best manage social-distancing requirements and ensure a safe visit for all those attending. Hopefully the sun will continue to shine, and we can welcome bigger crowds throughout the summer".

The Aldershot Lido is open seven days a week from 10am to 6pm until Sunday 5 September. Tickets are available to purchase online for all other days throughout the season.
