Road into Lido carpark remains closed - nearly done?

As of this afternoon, the carpark into the Lido remained closed. It looks nearly done but as you can see from the picture composite, there are still post holes to sort out. At least people have figured out a way to come in from the street through the fencing (pic 2, counterclockwise from top)! Saves the long walk round from the Lido Cafe!

Lido Modern Movement 2012 official promo & late add - live music weather permitting!

The Modern Movement at the Lido is just days away ... will the weather cooperate!??! It seems last year at this time it was dry and warm! See the official MM promo below. Also breaking news is that after their well-received performance at Dulwich Leisure Centre's inaugural Members' Evening last week, Herne Hill's Ingham Swing Ensemble will be on hand lunchtime (between noon and 1pm) on Sunday to play Cole Porter classics outside in the patio of The Lido Cafe. They'll back onto the pool so folks on hand for Modern Movement can listen. See photo of their expanded ensemble below last week at DLC. They'll be doing the likes of 'I Love Paris', 'Night and Day', 'I Get a Kick Out of You', 'I've Got You Under My Skin' and many more. Cole Porter got his start writing his classics in the 1920s just as the original Modern Movement got its start in Paris in the 1920s and spread throughout Europe during the 30s. So it's a good fit for what we hope will be a great weekend.

Status update on the Lido's two pools, Apr 26th

It's a tale of two pools at the Brockwell Lido. Outside, so far so good. Not many swimmers as yet (one report in the changing room this week put water temp at 14 degrees) but the pool is back in action and the Modern Movement is around the corner! Inside, however, no good. The hydrotherapy pool remains down with no restart in sight yet and exasperation all around. It was meant to have been fixed this week but is a long way from this as Fusion attempts to fashion a railing fix to what in essence is a hollow fibreglass vessel (with a lot of lovely blue tiles glued on top) have all failed so far. Perhaps it is time to get in experts from the shipyards - folks who deal with bolting things into fibreglass hulls! Next repair update due on April 28th.
