The biggest skinny dip in the UK. A unique and magical experience

North East Skinny Dip is an established and popular annual mass skinny dip. It takes place on Druridge Bay as the sun rises. NESD is not just a skinny dip. It's an experience! A celebration of life! Of nature! And of our own, unique, physical bodies! It provides a rare opportunity to step into our vulnerability, challenge the beauty myth and demolish shame. It's about taking a risk, embracing a moment of pure joy and freedom and ultimately promoting a deeper awareness of the importance of mental health. In all things!

There really is nothing quite like stripping down to skin and running wild and free into the North Sea with hundreds of other humans!!! Your registration is a pledge to Tyneside and Northumberland Mind. Since 2012 the North East Skinny Dip has collectively raised over £65,000 to strengthen the work of Tynesdie and Northumberland Mind. ALL proceeds from your pledges and every single penny of your fundraising will go towards improving LOCAL mental health services and LOCAL mental health!

NESD continues to thrive. There really is no better way of marking the Autumn Equinox than stripping down to skin and running wild and free into the North Sea with hundreds of other humans!!! Commit to this unique event TODAY! Every 'body' welcome. NO exceptions!

NESD2021 will take place at sunrise on Sunday 19th September at Druridge Bay.
It’s going to be HUGE!
