Free Community Halloween Extravaganza in partnership with Truespeed


To mark the end of our 2022 heated season at Autumn Half Term and to celebrate going live with our free for life broadband from Truespeed, we are delighted to announce that Truespeed is funding a FREE Day at Portishead Open Air Pool for the local community.

On Saturday 29 October, we will be offering free 90-minute swim sessions from 10am to 5.15pm and the water will be dyed a luxuriant pink to match Truespeed’s brand colour in celebration of providing the pool with free broadband – but of course, in your imagination, you could be on a Hollywood film set! Spooky Halloween decorations will add to the seasonal atmosphere and everyone is encouraged to dress in Halloween costume and join in fun.

Tickets are limited and are sure to be snapped up quickly so book your free swim now on our Bookwhen page!

It’s free to spectate and everyone is welcome to come and watch. Truespeed will be on hand dishing out Halloween goody bags and hosting an array of family-friendly games with loads of prizes to be won. They’ll also be available to answer any questions about their ultrafast broadband as local residents can now get connected to some of the fastest broadband speeds in the world.

At 1.30pm spectators will be treated to a super display from Bristol synchronised swimming team Almost Synchro before the afternoon sessions restart at 2.15pm.

As a people-focused business that strives to help the communities it connects, we are very grateful to Truespeed for supporting our community pool. As well as funding our free swim day, they have provided new uniforms for all our lifeguards, takeaway cups for the tuck shop and Café Lido and have connected the pool to free broadband that includes a public wi-fi hotspot for our customers. And last but not least, Truespeed have provided a generous donation towards the cost of a much needed disability hoist for the pool.

Welcome to our community Truespeed and long may our partnership continue!
