Bude Sea Pool is a semi-natural amenity that has provided a haven for free and safe bathing and other water-based activities since the 1930s. Access to Bude Sea Pool is unrestricted and free of any admission charge, although it costs over £40,000 every year to keep it open and safe. Almost 60,000 people visit Bude Sea Pool every year, making it the Number One visitor attraction in Bude.
It is managed by the Friends of Bude Sea Pool (FoBSP), a local charity that aims to preserve, improve and enhance Bude Sea Pool as a free amenity for the benefit of the community and the thousands of people who visit the town every year. The FoBSP receives no public funding, so we rely on you to give us your support or make a donation to keep Bude Sea Pool going and to enhance this unique facility.
An evening of music and comedy
A full house at Rosie’s Kitchen was introduced to talented local musician James Dixon by MC & Friends vice-chair Martyn Holehouse, warming up an enthusiastic crowd last night. James’ ridiculously talented act got the ball rolling for a raucous welcome to Edinburgh award-winning musical comedy from Christian Reilly.Christian brought the house down with hilarious & very barbed songs; no-one was left out, as everyone was treated to a merciless ribbing! Christian braved the storms to come to Bude & support the work of the FoBSP, & encouraged the crowd to get involved in fundraising. A superb set from the skilled & experienced Christian was closed with an encore, & by thanking Rosie’s for hosting us, their continued support of the FoBSP, & for keeping the fire going so we could all dry out!FoBSP would like to thank everyone who braved the weather and helped make the evening a success, the event raised £936 for FoBSP!
