We are trying to keep the cost of the event down for people traveling from outside of Brighton and so some of our members have offered to host people, either in spare rooms, couches or floor space. If this appeals to you please email GlitterGala18@gmail.com with your name, mobile number and how many of you would like to stay together (better to keep to small numbers 2-4). Then we will put you in contact with a potential host and you can make arrangements directly with them. We will do our best to accommodate everyone but unfortunately for obvious reasons we may not be able to.
Getting to Roedean School for the swimming:
To get to the pool at Roedean, drive up to the gates, they will open automatically, then follow the road over the mini roundabout, then up to the top, where the road veers towards the left slightly, follow the road along, then if you look to your right there is a sharp turn, the pool is accessed from car park at the bottom of this turning. If you are driving, please park in the TTIP Car park which is on the right before the turning for the pool (we are not permitted to park in the car park in front of the pool). Cyclists can bring cycles into the pool building. There will be signs on the day.
The closest bus stop is called Roedean School (which is the stop after Roedean Café, the buses electronically announce each stop), numbers 12, 12a, 14 and 27 go east from North Street (stop C) and the Sea Life Centre (stop K) towards Rottingdean. Bus 27 goes from outside Brighton Station (Stop B)
The entrance is not the one facing the main road, just walk back a few metres and follow the pathway along the fence through the meadow to the gate. For road vehicles the gate opens automatically by sensor, so you can either wait for a car or a cyclist to trigger the gate, or call the reception and tell them you are with OTSS.
Buses costs: £2.60 City Single, £5 City Saver if you’re getting the bus both ways.
