St Albans’ famous Polar Bear Plunge, held each New Year’s Day at the St Albans Sub Aqua Club since 2016, has raised £25,000 for good causes. From New Year's Day 2020, this fun-filled event is now organised by Earthworks!
The adventurous people of St Albans dress up and take a dip in the icy pool to be rewarded with a hot shower, hot chocolate with marshmallows, hearty vegan soup and loud spectators to cheer them on. Past plungers have included a pair of bananas, a giraffe, Banana Man, a ghostbuster, a nun, Thor, a stormtrooper, Baywatch characters and Buzz Lightyear. Onesies are very popular. With cake and a bar, it’s the perfect New Year’s Day!
