 Swim Wales announces partnership with Out & Wild Wellness Festival.  

Swim Wales has joined forces with Out & Wild Wellness Festival to promote and celebrate the benefits of open water swimming with women and those who are non-binary in the LGBTQIA community.

The UK’s first Wellness Festival designed for queer, questioning and curious women and those who are non-binary will take place over three days and nights from 10- 13th June 2022 in Lawrenny, Pembrokeshire.

Out & Wild is Festival of experiences, with dozens of activities taking place across the three days and nights covering music, comedy, wellness, sport, wild swimming, spoken word, poetry, interactive workshops, and more. In partnering with Out & Wild, Swim Wales is continuing to deliver on our vision of ‘aquatics for everyone for life’, ensuring the aquatic environment is safe, welcoming and inclusive for all.

Swim Wales CEO Fergus Feeney said: “Our vision at Swim Wales is ‘aquatics for everyone for life’, and when we say everyone, we mean everyone. Swimming and aquatics should be a safe and inclusive space for all, no matter an individual’s age, gender, race or background, and as the National Governing Body for aquatics, we are determined to ensure each and every person in Wales has access to the amazing health and wellbeing benefits getting into water can provide.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Out & Wild Festival to help showcase the positive impact wild and open water swimming can have mentally and physically. We’ve seen first-hand how it can change lives and be the basis for new and lasting friendships, and we’re looking forward to seeing aquatics feature as a key part of what promises to be a fantastic event in June.”
