Lido To Lakeside 1924 to 1992


Celebrating 25 Years Of Lakeside Arts
Sat 17th June - Sun 2nd July 2017
Djanogly Gallery
£3 - all tickets are timed entry

A splash is being made this summer celebrating 25 years of Nottingham Lakeside Arts.

In a special installation, the Djanogly Gallery will be reimagined as the old Highfields Park Lido. Commissioned digital artist Barret Hodgson invites visitors to take a unique and interactive dip through the decades, from the opening of the Lido in 1924, through to its final season in 1980, and on to the opening of the Djanogly Gallery in 1992. The two week installation is an immersive, and at times interactive, 25 minute experience for everyone to enjoy, inspired by memories and images of Highfields Lido, and featuring highlights of exhibitions from the Djanogly Gallery from the last 25 years. Visitors can expect an entertaining digital reflection of the site’s history as a public Bath, along with a celebration of its evolution as the Djanogly Gallery at Nottingham Lakeside Arts.

Come on in, the water’s lovely!

Highfields Lido was one of the many gifts Sir Jesse Boot (Boots Chemist founder) made to the city of Nottingham. When it opened in August 1924 it was the largest inland open-air swimming pool in the country. It remained a prominent feature of Highfields Park until the City Council closed the space after its summer season in 1980. Eventually the Lido was demolished and the site acquired by the University of Nottingham. 

- There are 6 showings daily, except Mondays when the the Djanogly Gallery is closed. Additional evening showings will take place on Wednesday 21 and Wednesday 28 June.
- Timed entry tickets will cost £3 with all proceeds going to University of Nottingham’s Life Cycle 7 charitable cause – Children's Brain Tumour Research
