Daredevils can dash down a giant snow hill on a rubber ring for two days only.

A high-speed snow slide made from 20 tonnes of the white stuff is open today and tomorrow in East Village.

Careering down the hill in Victory Park, the 25-metre-long shute allows visitors to sled to their heart’s content – regardless of whether it’s a white Christmas.

Best of all, you won’t have to pay a penny to ride.

Those in the spirit of festive giving can also make a donation to the East End Community Foundation (EECF) Newham Giving fund, supporting grassroots organisations which provide activities for families during the school holidays.

Guests can warm up with a hot chocolate or festive grub from one of many food stalls.

East Village coffee shops Hand Café and Signorelli will also be selling special chocolate brownie Christmas trees.

The slide is open today and tomorrow from midday to 8pm, or while the snow lasts.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
