John Brown, an apprentice at Ecko at the time, had this to say about the evening:
To mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the company founding, the Company commissioned trains to take employees from all the UK factories to Harringay in North London for a special performance of "Rose Marie on Ice". Each employee was given a sandwich box and drinks and you could take your spouse or a friend. I asked Joy Field, a friend from the Municipal College days, and we enjoyed a wonderful evening; the show culminated in Mr & Mrs E K Cole being conveyed by husky drawn sledge around the huge arena.
