What's On

Swanage Pier Big Summer Raffle 

Win fabulous prizes including a fabulous original painting by the acclaimed local artist Ben Spurling.

We are delighted that Ben has agreed to undertake this commission, which he is painting on location from the Sailing Club beach.  The piece will include the Pier as the main feature.

Ben’s work is drawn from a longstanding and deep appreciation of the Purbeck coastline which he explores on foot or on his old yellow bike.  He prefers using oils and with his skills gained in his BA Honours in Illustration, paints on location to observe colours and develop a closer affinity with the subject.

Other amazing prizes include :

All proceeds will go towards supporting the work of Swanage Pier Trust and you can purchase your tickets online, at the gatehouse or the Pier gift shop.

Tickets: £1 each

Draw will take place at Midnight on Monday 26th August 2024

Yoga on the Pier 

We are excited to announce that Yoga on the Pier is returning this summer. Offering an All Levels Class on a Tuesday and an Intermediate Guided Class on Thursday, full details and how to book below. 

 

All Levels Class 

Tuesday 18th June - Tuesday 20th August 

(no class on Tuesday 16th July)

The Tuesday morning sessions will be a gentle guided flow class suitable for all levels of experience and will include an introduction to simple breathing techniques, some standing and seated postures and guided relaxation. We will focus on different elements of the practice each week, sharing simple tools that will support you to develop a deeper awareness of your mind, body and breath.  We will explore variations to support everyone to find ways to move that feel comfortable in their own body. 

We encourage practitioners to develop awareness of how your body feels as they move and never to push into feelings of discomfort or pain.  With regular practice, yoga can help us to cultivate steadiness in our body, breath and mind. 

All levels and abilities are welcome on Tuesday mornings. We are not able to accommodate children in either class unfortunately.

  • £12.00 per session
  • £40.00 for four sessions
