Alexandra Palace’s idyllic ice rink, which features in Emma Thompson’s new rom-com Last Christmas, will be open throughout December offering festive skating alongside some special Christmas events. From the 13 December the ice rink will present a new pantomime production of Pinocchio on Ice. This magical retelling of the classic fairy tale performed by skaters of all ages will feature both new and familiar characters with a performance from Emma Moore who has previously performed as Matilda in the West End.
Taking over Alexandra Palace’s Victorian theatre from the 13 December is Mischief Theatre’s West End smash hit Peter Pan Goes Wrong. Following their multi award-winning success with The Play That Goes Wrong, Mischief Theatre return with their riotous spin on J.M. Barrie’s much-loved tale.
Santa’s Grotto returns to Alexandra Palace’s East Court this year where children of all ages will be able to meet and have their photos taken with Father Christmas. Santa will be in residence from 06 – 22 December.
These Christmas events will take place alongside Alexandra Palace’s usual activities of music, culture, creative learning and of course, the World Championship Darts. For further details and ticket information visit their website here.
