Covid scuppers sea pool art event

Covid has scuppered the Sea Pool’s Art Fundraising Event.

Key members of the team  have tested positive or have symptoms.  Numbers are increasing and the team feels it would be putting too many people at risk and that attendance might be down due to public concerns.

But all is not lost…. they have already secured a date for next year. The new show dates will be 11th – 13th May at the Falcon Hotel and hope that the show will be bigger and better than ever.

Following the recent rapid rise in Covid cases in Bude, the Trustees of the Friends of Bude Sea Pool have made an executive decision to postpone all indoor, in-person events in October and November 2021. It was put to the vote and decided that this course of action is in the interest of public health of both residents and visitors.

This will affect the following events:


  • Both elements of the Art Extravaganza, the Spot the Artist Exhibition and End of Show Auction, that were due to be held from 27th-29th October have been postponed until 11th-13th May 2022.
  • The 10th Year Birthday Celebrations that were due to be held on 13th November will be postponed until early 2022, date to be confirmed.
  • The Annual General Meeting will remain on 28th November, however will now be via Zoom.




Weather-willing, the Annual Dog Show will proceed on the 31st October as it is an outside event.
