Wild Swimming Stories with Vicky Allan & Anna Deacon

Wild swimming stories and caring for our seas

The benefits of wild swimming are well-documented and seasoned swimmers Vicky Allan and Anna Deacon will share details of the most reinvigorating and rewarding swimming spots around the UK from their popular series of books. In sharing their hard-earned secrets and in being close to nature, they also consider the environmental aspects that affect wild swimmers, thinking about biosecurity, water access and the plastic problem.

This talk will take place in the Seabird Cafe with stunning views out over the Firth of Forth. Ideal to inspiration should you be tempted to go for a dip after the talk.

This event is part of Marine Fest 2023 a five-day programme of events, exhibitions and workshops that will run from 8th – 12th June, inviting visitors of all ages to get closer to nature and consider how we can best protect our seas in the future.
