More than 200 swimmers will compete at the event on the 26 and 27 November with Paralympic champions David Roberts, Eleanor Simmonds, Sascha Kindred and Liz Johnson all confirmed to take part.
This event is one of our great national meets for British swimmers.
The Championships - which are free for spectators to attend - will also see a return to action for Nyree Kindred, competing nationally for the first time since giving birth to daughter Ella earlier this year.
And Kindred admits the event will be a good marker of her form, having returned to full training.
"Training started off slowly as I didn't want to push myself too soon but I am now back to my usual training regime of eight swim sessions and two gym sessions a week," said Kindred, who is married to fellow Paralympic swimmer Sascha,
"I’m focused on the British Gas Swimming Championships in March to get me to the Games in London.
“They will learn a lot from this event as its one of our great national meets for British swimmers."
