Iconic North London destination venue, Alexandra Palace, is set to be transformed with the help of Alice and a few of her skating winter wonderland friends this December, in a Christmas panto on ice.
Crowds will enter Ally Pally’s own winter wonderland to see the Palace’s skaters take to the ice for a festive show set on its recently refurbished rink. ‘Alice in Winter Wonderland’ will be performed by Ally Pally skating club members, against the backdrop of the dramatic Victorian architecture. Alice will be played by lead actress Imogen Welsford; the 17 year old has been skating for over a decade and is sure to warm the audience’s heart. She will be joined by the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and other classic members including Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum as the ice rink is transformed into the magical world of Wonderland.
The Palace’s skating coach, Becky Smith has choreographed the panto, working with skaters from the age of six, to create the spectacular show. Celebrity comedian Rowland Rivron co-wrote the script and will compere the show with his tongue in cheek humour.
Families will love the huge grounds where they can enjoy a crisp winter stroll before warming up with great food in the Bar and Kitchen ahead of the show, whilst couples will be enchanted by the setting of one of the most romantic winter locations in the capital. The snow lined trees and breathtaking views of London set the scene for the panto on ice awaiting them inside the Victorian building.
