The Battersea Evolution venue in Battersea Park will transform into an alpine arena to host The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Festival for the fifth year running.
The festival attracted 17,000 visitors in 2018 – the highest number of attendees since its move to Battersea Evolution in 2015.
On October 24-27, the 2019 festival will mark 46 years of the popular event, making it the longest-running winter sports event.
Over four days, The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Festival will unite ski, winter sports and destination experts from across the globe under one roof.
Packed full of information for novices and ski fanatics, the event has taken inspiration from some of the best large scale ski celebrations in the mountains to create an exciting festival right here in London.
This year will include Team GB’s Winter Olympic and Paralympic stars, all of whom will be on hand to inspire guests with incredible stories, experiences and advice that is sure to encourage travellers to book their next ski holiday.
It is also the perfect place to shop the latest kit in preparation for a ski or snowboard holiday.
Taking place during the October school holidays, the show will also feature a full schedule of activities, games and entertainment that is perfect for the whole family over the half-term break, including an artificial slope, ice skating, face painting, Halloween themed entertainment and ski taster sessions with Chel-Ski.
New features for this year include craft beer tasting, curling on the ice rink and sports taster sessions, as well as an authentic Street Food Village serving delicious alpine food and drinks, competitions and a fantastic line-up of live music, DJ sets and comedy.
