Event Details

A chance to hear from the Outdoor Swimming Society founder Kate Rew who joins us on stage to share her latest work The Outdoor Swimmer's Handbook.

Experience vivid first-hand accounts of swims in astonishing places and with remarkable people and hear deeply researched information on how to swim safely.

Whether you're new to Outdoor Swimming or a seasoned swimmer, Kate Rew explores the rich and varied life of outdoor swimmers, from the physiology of cold to planning lazy hazy downstream swims.

Kate Rew will be in conversation with Colin Hill.
