New Year’s Day Swim 2024

Take the plunge this New Year's Day
Start 2024 with a splash in Salford Quays. Big, bold and mighty cold!

January 1, 2024 | 11:00am - 12:00pm

Do you enjoy open water swimming? Want to start 2024 with a splash?

We have teamed up with Uswim who are running their long established (13 years and counting!) New Year’s Day swim on Monday 1st January 2024 at  Dock 9, MediaCityUK, Salford Quays.

Celebrate the start of a new year with family, friends and fellow cold water lovers! The invigorating water temperature will be 7c! The uber-friendly crowd and iconic Lowry Theatre backdrop guarantees top pics and crazy fun.

Will you be brave and bold and withstand the cold to take part in this year’s NYD’24 swim and get sponsored for St Ann’s Hospice?

Once you’ve signed up with Uswim you can set up your JustGiving fundraising page to support St Ann’s here.

If you have any questions about the event, please get in touch by emailing or calling us on 0161 498 3631.

Don’t worry we won’t leave you out in the cold – our friendly events team will be on hand to help you all the way!

You can find out more information about the swim and book your place below.


Adults (16+) £25.00

Young People (7-15yrs) £5.00

Swim Courses

There’ll be a 250m towfloat-compulsory course for competent swimmers who are then able to swim for as long as they safely want.

There is also a 100m non-towfloat course for swimmers who still want the buzz of a deliciously cold open water swim. Towfloats are still recommended though 🙂

Swim Timings

There will be TWO ‘waves’ of swimmers entering the water at 30 minute intervals based upon surnames.


10.15-11.15 am.

‘Wave’ Swim Times (based on surnames)*

1) A-H – 11.00am

2) I-Z –  11.30am

All swimmers to have left the water by 12pm.

*If attending with friends/family with different surnames its 100% cool if you simply swim together. No need to email regarding this, just turn up and let Uswim know on the day.
