Rare Chance to Visit Woolton Baths During Beatle Week 2013!

Open to the public for viewing

Thursday August 22 from 10am to 3pm

Friday August 23 from 10 to 3pm

Don't miss this rare and exciting opportunity to visit a place that was a special part of the childhoods of both John and Paul!

The BBFC is delighted to support the efforts to save and re-open Woolton Swimming Pool, the historic Victorian baths where both John and Paul loved to go swimming as children.

In July we covered the 120th Birthday Celebrations for the pool (click here to read that story) and felt privileged to be invited inside the building on one of the rare occasions that visitors were allowed inside.

We are therefore even more delighted to announce that visitors to Liverpool for this year's Beatle Week will also have the opportunity to visit Woolton Swimming Pool!

Especially for Beatle Week, Woolton Baths will be opening for Beatles fans (and all members of the public!) for viewing on 22nd and 23rd August from 10am to 3pm each day.

Entry is free, but donations to the campaign to save this historic pool will be very much appreciated.  There will also be memorabilia and souvenirs available to buy.

Visitors can see a selection of the congratulatory 120th birthday cards donated by schools / local individuals, Woolton Swimming Club history, and view the pool as well as the rear courtyard where the former fire station was located.
