OSS December DipThis annual freezing (not to mention crazy) dip into Parliament Hill Lido takes place on Saturday 13th December in 2014. Formerly known as the 'Plum Pudding Plunge', 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 sees the introduction of a few different swims under the umbrella of the main event, including the Fancy Dress Dippers, Bobble Hat Breaststrokers and the Freezing Freestylers, and the day will be opened by open water 'man of the year' nominee Adam Walker. There will be mince pies, a hot tub and general merrymaking to dispel the inevitable goosebumps and chattering teeth. Swimmers who register online beforehand will pay 16 while those who make an impromptu decision on the day will pay 20.

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
