Creative Photography Workshop for Learners


The National Lido of Wales, Lido Ponty, is pleased to participate in the National Lottery #ThanksToYou campaign.

By buying National Lottery tickets over the last 21 years, people across the country have made an incredible difference to the UK’s heritage. In particular, they have helped the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) invest more than £1billion in projects that help protect and nurture our precious natural heritage, with 1.6 million supporting the restoration at the National Lido of Wales - Lido Ponty.

On December 9th a Creative Photography Workshop will be available FREE, as part of the #ThanksToYou campaign.
