The 16th annual Christmas Day Dip in aid of the St. Elizabeth Hospice.

Around 500 dippers take part each year and see this as the traditional start to the Christmas Day festivities. Everyone is welcome to come along and watch which adds to the fantastic atmosphere as the dippers gather to run into the sea. While those raising money will be dashing into the bracing waters, there will be patients in the hospice receiving the care they need.

Registration takes place from 0830 to 0945 opposite Manning's Amusements on the seafront.

- Early Bird Ticket: £8.00 per person until midnight on Friday 15 November.
- Standard Ticket: £13.00 per person until midnight on Sunday 22 December.
- On the Day Ticket: £20.00 per person. Available to purchase from 0830 on Wednesday 25 December.

Ticket price includes administration fee, plus one wristband and medal. Fancy dress welcome.

Entrants must be 10 years of age or over to take part. Any dippers between the age of 10 and 17 must take part alongside a parent or guardian who will accompany them throughout the event.

The horn will sound at 1000 and the dippers will run into the North Sea!
