HOLIDAY ON ICE shows take place in modern event locations, so that there are generally very good public transport links and plenty of on-site parking. However, please always check specifics with the event venue in Brighton.

Admission to the hall generally begins around an hour before the event starts.

As the HOLIDAY ON ICE shows take place in a modern event hall, the temperature is around 20 degrees Celsius.

Children up to and including three years old do not need tickets for the show. Small children can visit the show for free and sit on the lap of their accompanying adult, but do not have the right to a seat.

Technical information

On average, the ice is applied at a rate of one millimetre per hour. The ice is also coloured with chalk for visual and lighting reasons, so that the whole process of setting up the ice takes around 48 hours.

On average, we need around 40,000 litres of water to set up the ice rink.

As HOLIDAY ON ICE shows are put on in modern event halls, the ice rink is only set up and dismantled for the respective tour dates. Depending on the existing structures on-site, the hall floor is covered with a plastic sheet and a layer of polystyrene around three centimetres thick. On this, we lay aluminium plates that are cooled so intensely using sophisticated technology that water freezes on them.

After the last show, the lighting, video and sound equipment are taken apart and then the ice rink is dismantled. The ice is loaded into disposal containers and disposed of appropriately at each venue.
