Roundtable Christmas Day Swim
Friday 25 December 2015
Swimmers should arrive by 10.30am
Hunstanton Round Table Christmas Day Swim attracts thousands of spectators each year from near and far and has enjoyed fantastic support for 50 years
Viewing and swimming is free, though swimmers must raise and give all sponsorship money to Round Table for distribution.
Should swimmers have any specific charity they wish their funds to be donated to (or request further donations), then this can be arranged through the Round Table.
What better way to spend Christmas morning than frolicking in the sea with over a hundred other people (and many hundred spectators) dressed in a variety of bizarre and outrageous costumes! A prize of £25 for the best dressed individual and £100 for the best group will be presented prior to the swim, so give those costumes some thought!
The Christmas Swim has been going for over 50 years now and in recent times the event has seen record crowds watching and participating. This event raises much needed funds for Round Table, enabling us to support many local good causes. Why not come along and give it a go – after all it will make you feel less guilty after that huge Christmas lunch!!!
Price: Contributions to charity always welcome – Swimmers must raise sponsorship, see website for details
Location: Hunstanton Promenade, north Norfolk coast

Have you considered the Hunstanton Christmas Day Swim? Swimmers hit the water at 11 a.m. just off Hunstanton Prom. Car parking is free that day so that is an added bonus for visitors. There is still time to dig out your cozzie and join the fun! Some of the swimmers have been known not to bother with a costume too!
Our Heacham based cosy ground floor flat, which sleeps up to four adults, is available over the Christmas and New Year holiday. A young family of four would be very comfortable for a truly festive family occasion. You are welcome to bring your own decorations to personalise your holiday home.
Our flat has all the amenities you could need for a fantastic self-catering family Christmas and/or New Year. A well behaved dog is also welcome so he can enjoy Christmas with all the family.

Every year on Christmas Day we have the wonderful Hunstanton Christmas Swim. Visitors begin assembling around 10.30am and the swimmers generally hit the water at 11am all festively dressed with the aim of raising money for local charities.
The event attracts hordes of visitors from all around and really makes a great addition to your Christmas Day.
Just take a look at the photo of last year’s swim! If you want to find out more about the Hunstanton Christmas Swim you can see more on Hunstanton On Line.
