The Pelican Centre needs you!

We’re planning some exciting changes for The Pelican Centre this year, which we can’t wait to tell you about.

The Majestic Theatre Tyldesley
Tyldesley Pool

To help us, we’re asking for your Pelican stories!

  • What does The Pelican Centre mean to you and your family? Maybe generations have learnt to swim with us, or you’ve recently discovered what the Centre has to offer!
  • What are your earliest Pelican memories – perhaps you remember Tyldesley Baths, or even the Majestic Cinema?
  • Do you have great memories of old school swimming lessons?
  • Were you an early member of Tyldesley Swimming & Water Polo Club?
  • Have you met lifelong friends here?
  • Do you have old photographs of the Centre? Maybe outside with friends, polo club matches or school swimming galas?

Fondly-remembered teachers, meeting your partner, making new friends – we’d love to hear what makes the Pelican special to you.

To tell us about The Pelican Centre, its place in Tyldesley and your experiences, please send your stories and photos by email to

Thank you!

The Pelican Centre team
