Win access to abandoned art deco baths

It's not often we run competitions here at Skyliner, but this one was irresistible as it includes access to the derelict art deco baths in Chadderton. 

 
 
 

The striking venue has been closed since 2006 and the baths were featured as one of the ten most beautiful abandoned swimming pools by Urban Ghosts

Access to the venue is possible thanks to Nokia and La Blogotheque who bring you Lumia Live Sessions, a series of free gigs in unique venues across the country. This, their 4th session, sees them joined by emerging soul artist Kwabs. Kwabs has received a lot of great press over summer including glowing reviews from The Guardian, MTV and BBC Radio 1Xtra, and is definitely one to watch this year. 

Chadderton baths were opened in 1937 and was the stomping ground of Henry Taylor - the olympic swimmer. The gig on September 1st is the first event at the venue for over eight years.

And if you're keen to see the space but you're thinking "Hey, that sounds incredible but I don't drive - how do I get there?" Well how about you help yourself to £15 worth of taxi rides with Uber for absolutely nothing? Just sign up on the link below for your free credit. You can use the credit however you wish, it doesn't need to be for this event so even if you don't win why don't you treat yourself to a tour of all the far-flung of parts Manchester that were just that bit too far to walk or cycle to? 

To enter the competition tweet a link to this article and include @custardlove in your tweet.
