Christmas is coming to the enchanting Natural History Museum Ice Rink with festive fun on offer for everyone. Set against the stunning backdrop of one of London's best-loved landmarks, skaters can take to the ice throughout the winter period. There's lots to do this November, as skaters will be treated to Disco Decades and Acoustic Lates presented by Ticketmaster.
Disco Decades - brand new for 2019
Every Tuesday evening for the rest of November, between 19.00-21.00, the Natural History Museum Ice Rink will present Disco Decades. Skaters will be transported back in time, with each week representing a different musical decade. Our DJ will mix classic tracks over the ice, while visitors whiz around the rink.
Once the disco dancers have had their fill on the rink, they can head up to the Café Bar to enjoy more nostalgic tunes and delicious seasonal cocktails. Fancy dress is encouraged, but not required.
Skaters can submit requests for their favourite tracks in advance via Instagram (@nhm_icerink).
