The country’s best-known food emporium, Fortnum & Mason, returns to offer visitors warming treats from the Fortnum & Mason Skate Lodge, including hot chocolate and Welsh rarebit.
2017’s Skate Lates series returns for another year of cutting-edge artists and DJs, including Total Refreshment Centre, Five Miles and Balamii. The ever-popular Lodge will be back and better than ever, with plenty of space to get warm after an afternoon on the ice. There’s also a chance to pick up some beautiful gifts and decorations at the Fortnum’s Christmas Arcade. And Somerset House’s artistic credentials aren’t overlooked: there’s a new commission from Ruth Proctor (a skater herself), as well as special collaborations inspired by current exhibition Good Grief, Charlie Brown! Celebrating Snoopy and the Enduring Power of Peanuts.
Little skaters can take their first steps onto the ice with lessons for all ages at the Polar Bear Club. And don’t despair if you’re the Bambi of your family or friend group - instruction is also available for adults, so anyone can brush up on their (potentially non-existent) skills.
Booking opens on 13th September
