Next week the Blackpool Ice Skating Festival returns to The Arena at Blackpool Pleasure Beach from Monday 11th April to Friday 15th April.
Ice skaters from across the UK will travel to the resort to compete for first place in their category.
The Pleasure Beach Arena has hosted the Blackpool Ice Skating Festival for over 50 years and has seen thousands of talented skaters show off their skills, many of whom have gone on to represent their country at international level.
The event takes place at Blackpool Pleasure Beach Arena, the oldest purpose-built ice theater in the world, which opened in 1937 and was designed by renowned architect Joseph Emberton.
The arena has also hosted Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s legendary ice show, Hot Ice since it opened.
This year’s production, Rapture, is the show’s 85th year and will feature an international cast, including some of the world’s best skaters, when it opens on July 7.
Amanda Thompson OBE, CEO of Blackpool Pleasure Beach Group of Companies, said: “We are delighted to welcome this prestigious event back to the UK ice skating event calendar. After a few years of postponed festivals, we can’t wait to see the latest generation of talent and those young people who have worked hard to show off their skills.
