Making a Splash at Templemore Baths - Exhibition

18 Nov

Making a Splash at Templemore Baths - Exhibition

The Templemore Avenue Baths or more commonly known by locals as the ‘swimmers’ has provided bathing and swimming facilities for residents of east Belfast for over a century. Although the doors to the baths are currently closed due to regeneration, this pop-up exhibition will get you in the mood to take the plunge. By using oral history testimonies and objects, this exhibition presents the childhood and adolescent memories of men and women who used the baths between the 1950s and 1980s. Whether you loved or loathed visiting the baths, I promise you will not end up in the “ice box”. Instead, you’ll get to learn more about the history of the baths and how individuals experienced the space differently due to age, gender and class. Open to all, no towel or soap necessary!

This exhibition will be hosted by Connswater Shopping Centre throughout the festival 18th-22nd November and beyond!
