Another highlight of Normanton is the swimming pool which provides entertainment for the whole family throughout the year. From lane swimming and aqua aerobics to fun sessions and pool parties there is sure to be something for everyone at Normanton Swimming Pool.
Normanton holds a gala every year that attracts crowds from across the district. It welcomes visitors throughout the day as entertainment is provided for the whole family to enjoy.
