OSS December DipThis annual freezing (not to mention crazy) dip into Parliament Hill Lido takes place on Saturday 2nd December in 2017. This is the first swim of the season organised by the Outdoor Swimming Society, who each year organise festive swims as far away and chilly as Scotland. This year the hotly contested Best Dressed Dipper cup is back - don your best fancy dress and see if you can knock three times champion Andrew Heather off his perch. Take inspiration from this year's theme - The Twelve Days of Christmas - and be ready to parade your creations around the pool at 12.10pm. In addition, there will be a sauna, mince pies and general merrymaking to dispel the inevitable goosebumps and chattering teeth.

About Parliament Hill Lido

The gorgeous unheated Parliament Hill Lido on Hampstead Heath (also called 'Hampstead Heath Lido') was upgraded not so long ago when it had a generous £2.9million lavished on it. This means the lido now has a cool new stainless steel lining with wonderful reflective qualities which also helps to retain the heat. More about Parliament Hill Lido
