The charity's H2Only Bar will be in town for one day to raise awareness of their fundraising campaign
Lifesaving charity RNLI are hosting a pop-up water-only bar for one day to raise awareness of their fundraising campaign H2Only.
Open from 11am to 8pm on 29 May, visitors will be able to drink as many glasses of water as they like for free.

The H2Only Bar aims to stop East Londoners in their tracks – calling for as many people to sign up to the challenge as possible between now and the 2 June at h2only.org.uk, where the H2only app can be downloaded for support during the 10-days challenge.
The pop-up Shoreditch bar will house a single cold water tap, together with cardboard cups.
RNLI lifeboat helm Andy Mayo said: “We rely on public funding to help us stay on the water rescuing anyone who needs our help, so we’re asking people to stay on the water themselves for 10 days from 2–12 June.
“Our temporary bar is a fun, cheap way to recruit Londoners and raise awareness of the amazing work the RNLI does.
“It’s easy to sign up, just go to h2only.org.uk where you can get a JustGiving page set up straight away – the sooner you start the more you’ll raise, the money you spend drinks over the 10 days will soon add up.
“It costs over £410k a day to run the lifesaving service, and during the same 10 days in June last year the RNLI saved 9 lives, rescuing 478 people.”
