Winter Gala 2023

Sep 28, 2023

Update 6/12/23: Spectator Tickets are now sold out.

We are thrilled to announce that, for the first time, the Cambridge Ice Skating Club will be hosting the Cambridge Ice Arena's Winter Gala!

Once again, we will be shining the (festive) spotlights on Cambridge's skating talent. Solo, Pair, Group and Synchro programmes of any kind are welcome. The Gala will also provide opportunities for the rink's Learn To Skate and Coffee Skate groups to perform.

The Winter Gala will take place on Sunday 10th December, 14:30-17:15. Save the Date!

Perform Your Programme

Club Members can register their desire to participate by submitting our Programme Registration Form. The entry fee will be £15 per programme. Skaters that aren't yet members of the club can Join Us for free before submitting their form.

Programmes must be submitted by 18:00 on Tuesday 31st October.

Please note:

  • Submitting a form does not guarantee you a slot in the Gala. We will follow up with all entrants as soon as we've drawn up the schedule following the closing date. The registration fee will be payable at that stage.

  • It is our aim to offer a slot for every programme. However, if we receive more programmes than we are able to accommodate, we will allocate slots giving priority to skaters that call Cambridge Ice Arena their home rink.

Perform with Learn to Skate or Coffee Skate

The Winter Gala will have special programme slots for group performances by the rink's up-and-coming Learn to Skate members and Coffee Skate frequenters. If you're interested in joining one of these group programmes, please:

  1. Register with the club if you haven't already (it's free!).

  2. Inform the coach that leads your lesson/session of your interest.

The club will be liaising with the coaches directly for these programmes. In advance of the event, you'll receive an email confirming your participation in a group performance and details on when to be ready for the performance.

There is no charge for being a part of the Learn to Skate or Coffee Skate performances, but you have to have an active Learn to Skate membership/have attended a recent Coffee Skate and the programme rehearsals.

Join the Crowd

Spectator tickets are £7 each, and are now available from our Club Shop.

Tickets are limited, so please purchase ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Note: Your email purchase receipt is your "ticket" - please have it ready to present at the door on the evening for quick entry.

Volunteers Wanted

Volunteers to help us run the event are asked to make themselves known to us ASAP. Tasks will include ticket checking, stewarding (since not all spectators will be familiar with the rink), runners and pad door/skater management.

Feel free to get in contact if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
