Royal Pavilion Ice Rink launch
Last night a couple of us were fortunate enough to attend the launch event for the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink. This is now the second year that the ice rink has been at the Royal Pavilion and it really does have a magical feel to it. The backdrop is of course stunning, particularly the way the building has been lit.
Plus if you are not an avid skater you can still visit the bar & restaurant and simply watch as others pirouette across the ice. But if you do want to skate it's all family friendly and there are even special penguin stabilisers, although I'm sure any unsteady adults could also use the penguins!
At last night's event aside from seeing the actual rink we were also treated to a sneak preview of Holiday on Ice. The 2012 show is called Tropicana and features music by the legendary Barry Manilow so I think it is safe to say that it is a tad camp...
Yes that's right that lady does have an orange on her head, where can I get one of those hats! As soon as I heard that the music was by Barry Manilow I was excited about the show but having seen this I am even more excited! Just so you can fully appreciate the outfits here is the professional shot taken by Andrew Hasson:
So whether you are a skating pro or a complete novice make sure you visit the ice rink which opens from tomorrow (12th November) until 22nd January. And Holiday on Ice - Tropicana: The Passion tour will be on at the Brighton Centre from the 13th - 29th January 2012.
