NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM ICE RINK SET TO BRING WINTER FUN BACK TO LONDON

 
 
London’s Natural History Museum Ice Rink is returning for the 2021 winter season for the last time. Set against the beautiful backdrop of one of London’s most iconic landmarks, skaters can take to the ice from Friday 22 October 2021 until Sunday 16 January 2022. After a one year hiatus and difficult Christmas for many in 2020, the NHM Ice Rink is back to restore some festive cheer and reunite friends and families with a much-loved London winter tradition. 


After an incredible 16 years, this will be the ice rink’s last year at the Natural History Museum before the Museum’s five-acre site in South Kensington is transformed into a welcoming, accessible and biologically diverse green space in the heart of London as part of the Museum’s Urban Nature Project. 

A perfect day out in a simply stunning setting, the Natural History Museum Ice Rink welcomes all ages and abilities. This year, the sparkling rink, located along South Kensington’s twinkling tree-lined streets, will once again be topped off with a spectacular 30ft Christmas tree, the perfect centrepiece to everyone’s skating experience.


The popular CafĂ© Bar will also return this year as well as a tasty array of hot food sold outside in the Museum Gardens. Skating lessons will be available via the website, and the Penguin Skate Club will make its return for children’s skate lessons on Saturday mornings from 6 - 20 November and 27 November - 8 January (excluding New Year’s Day). Please see the website for more details.

The Prince Of Egypt Hit Musical


Journey through the wonders of Ancient Egypt as two young men, raised together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege, find themselves suddenly divided by a secret past. One must rule as Pharaoh, the other must rise up and free his true people; both face a destiny that will change history forever.


We were honoured to attend the much anticipated Prince Of Egypt musical at the Dominion Theatre in London. The story follows Moses and Ramses a true story of friendship and brotherhood as both young men discover their destiny.


The Prince of Egypt was an incredible show, full of energy from the start to the finsh the choreography and set changes were seamless as was vocals from the cast. We were captivated throughout the entire phenomenal performance and enjoyed every single minute. Highly recommended and would definitely go again.

Hackney Empire - Jack and the Beanstalk


For the first time, Olivier-Award winner 
Clive Rowe and Hackney panto veteran Tony Whittle will co-direct and star in Hackney Empire’s 2021 pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk which will run from 20 November to 2 January 2022. Both making their 14th pantomime appearance, Grande Dame Clive Rowe will star as Dame Daisy Trott while Tony Whittle will play Councillor Higginbottom.

Tony and Clive have a theatrical connection spanning the last 20 years and are really looking forward to working together as co-directors of this year’s pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk. Troilus and Cressida at Regent’s Park for the New Shakespeare Company was their first job together in 1998, a far cry from the custard pie-filled world they find themselves in now. 

Clive Rowe and Tony Whittle said:
“We have a similar sense of humour and it is not uncommon for us to be in floods of tears making each other laugh, sometimes even on stage. We are both really looking forward to working with this new exciting pantomime team and having the best fun whilst creating a multi-generational, traditional Hackney pantomime.

Full principal casting includes the legendary Kat B as Simple Simon, Zoe Curlett as Fenella Fleshcreep, Julie Jupp as Fairy Fusia, Ellie Ruiz Rodriguez as Jill Higginbottom, Rochelle Sherona as Jack Trot, Tony Whittle as Councillor Higginbottom and Clive Rowe as Dame Daisy Trott. 

So, as only Hackney Empire can, Jack and the Beanstalk will get the festive season underway once more, with all the fun, magic, mischievous mayhem, and razzle-dazzle that Hackney audiences love and sadly missed last Christmas. 

When happy-go-lucky Jack is tempted into selling his family’s beloved cow for a fistful of magic beans, he finds himself tangled in an adventure of epic proportions! Join Jack on his journey up an enchanted beanstalk as he tries to outwit a rampaging giant, all with the help of his larger-than-life mum. 
This tall-tale is packed full of slapstick comedy, laugh-out-loud gags, stunning costumes, dazzling song, and dance numbers, and plenty of chances to cheer, boo and hiss. Hackney Empire’s pantomime has become one of the city’s most anticipated annual highlights bringing West End value at East End prices to attract an ever-growing local, national and global fanbase. 

Over 44,000 people attended the 2020 pantomime Dick Whittington and His Cat including 10,000 schoolchildren. 41% of the audience were first-time visitors to Hackney Empire. 

 

Marking the 22nd pantomime at the East End venue, Jack and the Beanstalk which was previously scheduled to open in December 2020 will have a press night on Thursday 2nd December 2021. Tickets are on sale now from www.hackneyempire.co.uk.
