Preview: Lido Love @ London Fields

Lido Love returns this Saturday, 8th January, celebrating the vibrant life and "hidden history" of London Fields Lido through art, music, performance and poetry.

Open for heated swims between 8am-4pm, at 7pm the pool will be transformed by ethereal lighting and a deckchair installation for 2 hours of entertainment. There's a homage to the campaigners who fought to save the lido, London Fields Radio will broadcast live, Hammer and Tongues will riff, StrangeWorks provide interactive theatre and cabaret punk bank, Bon Bon Kaotikai, who used to play at the squatted lido, perform. Possibly in their swimwear for old times' sake.

Tickets for this unique evening on Saturday 8th January between 7-9pm are £7. The Hoxton Beach Cafe will be serving steamy drinks and snacks.

Share in the love for London's lidos.
