Sea Lanes festival
Are you feeling blue about the summer season slowly coming to an end? Have no fear – Sea Lanes are hosting an End of Summer Festival on Maderia Drive at the end of this month! The free ticket (bookable online) will provide a day of interactive talks, taster sessions – from SUP to endless pool coaching. You can also have a chance to pick up an end of season bargain from some of the best brands in the water world – from sustainable swimwear to adventure holidays and more.

There will be opportunities to hear from local experts and award-winning authors and join them for a friendly, relaxing and fun day out. Delicious street food from Desert Island Kitchen and craft beer (and the usual drinks) will also be available throughout the day at Bison Beach Bar.

Talks and interactive sessions will be hosted by Ella Foote, CEO and founder of Deakin and Blue, the transformational swimwear collection. The company’s ethos promotes sustainable and ethical production while also creating sleek designs to make people feel comfortable with their bodies.
