About Loony Dook - CANCELLED

Running since 1987, the Loony Dook has grown in popularity year on year with thousands of people raiding their fancy-dress cupboards in a bid to ring in the new year in style and win best dressed on the beach.

Tickets are on sale from £11.50, and each ticket bought includes a donation to the RNLI, access to the beach, main parade, and band performances.
