‘Love Your Lido’ is an exciting reworking of newly discovered archive film from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s of St Leonards open-air bathing pool, and ‘new vintage’ material filmed at a 50s themed event on 22nd August 2009 at Salt Dean Lido.

Including personal memories from the local community this remarkable work seeks to invoke the spirit of this thriving era on the site of this once flourishing public venue in West St Leonards. Love Your Lido was created by Mat McDonnell, commissioned by the Electric Palace.
