A Palace, a curse,  and a princess in love.  What more could you want from a magical Christmas story….

And what could be better than Sleeping Beauty when it comes to this year’s Ally Pally Panto on Ice.  After all, our Palace was at the heart of a royal love story hundred’s of years ago, given to a Princess as a gift from a Prince

Our Panto takes on the traditional story of Sleeping Beauty, but with a few modern twists and tunes for fun.(oh yes there are!).

Superb ice skating from our young stars will leave you spellbound.  Like the Princess Aurora herself, who to protect her from the evil curse of Malificent has her name changed to Rose and is taken to live in the beautiful (Green Flag winning!) parkland by her fairy godmothers.  Watched over by them, Rose grows up safely and meets a young Prince.  A spinning wheel and a curse means they are separated on her 16th birthday and the Palace becomes frozen in time…. it is left to the fantastic cast to weave the rest of this enchanting story for you to discover how everyone can live happily ever after.
