Oxford’s Christmas Ice Show promises to be a star-studded silver screen skating spectacular

Published: Friday, 11th November 2016

International, national and local skating champions will perform to themes from the movies at Oxford Ice Rink’s annual Christmas show next month.

The 2016 Christmas Ice Show, called ‘Night at the Movies’, will take place at Oxford Ice Rink on Saturday 10 December and Sunday 11 December.

The show is a popular part of the city’s Christmas calendar and this year features performances from international, national and local skating champions – alongside more than 150 local skaters.

The skating stars will perform to music from the movies, including Harry Potter, 101 Dalmatians, Saturday Night Fever, James Bond, Moulin Rouge, The Wizard of Oz and more.

The show is produced by Oxford Ice Rink and local skate coaches Jane de Lange, Sue Hand, Alison Morrell, Tammy Sear-Watkins, David Horton, Ashley Moore and Alicia de Lange, along with great help from local skaters and their families.

Vincent Harley, General Manager of Oxford Ice Rink, said: “The Ice Rink Christmas Show is a great way to kick off the festive season. We have some great international quality skaters plus local stars and over a hundred of our own skaters – and even Marvin the Penguin taking part.

“The coaches, Ice Rink team, skaters and families have put a lot of work into making this show one of the premier Christmas events in the county and I would encourage everyone to come to the show and get in the Christmas spirit.”

Councillor Linda Smith, Executive Board Member for Leisure, Parks and Sport, said: “I took my family to last year's Christmas Ice Show and it was a magical evening out which we all enjoyed. The skill of the professional skaters was breathtaking and the fun being had by the many local kids taking part was infectious.

“Oxford's Christmas Ice Show is an amazing celebration of both the festive season and of the popularity of ice skating in the city.”

Performances will be held twice daily at 3pm and 6pm.
