PEOPLE can fling off their clothes - and swimming costumes - for the Great British Skinny Dip at Didcot Wave swimming pool this July.

As part of the national month-long campaign by British Naturism, venues across the nation will open up their pools to nudity.

The Great British Skinny Dip aims to raise awareness of the health benefits of being naked and British Naturism says studies show that spending time naked - especially with others - can make us happier.

The event will come to the Didcot Wave on Saturday, July 13, from 7.15pm to 8.45pm.

Entry will cost £10 (with use of lockers at £1 as standard), and visitors must bring photo ID such as a driving licence.

British Naturism advertise the event as a chance to meet the members of their club and ask about what it is like at club sites.

There are a number of venues that are due to host the event and more skinny dip events are currently being scheduled.

Spokesman Andrew Welch said: "People who regularly shed their clothes know that the benefits include improved well-being, reduced stress and an increase in body confidence.

"It’s also liberating and a lot of fun! Millions of people worldwide have discovered this simple antidote to the stresses of modern life and we want to encourage more people to experience it."
