The Natural History Museum’s Christmas rink held their first patch session
Last Thursday, some 25 skaters took to the ice on a private patch session, at the Swarovski Ice Rink at the Natural History Museum.
In the shadows of the Hintze hall and under the sparkling Christmas tree, jumps, spins and spirals aplenty took place. There was even a synchronised spiral! The evening started with a social gathering for drinks, nibbles and a chat in the café bar, before heading out into the crisp evening air.
Following the successful launch evening on the 28th October, which saw members of the London Adult Figure Skating Club skate and entice the VIP guests onto the ice, the club was asked if they would like to have a patch session. A mixture of club members and guests took the opportunity to skate beneath the magical setting.
Smiles of happiness at being outdoors on the ice, were evident on all the skaters’ faces. Especially when posing for pictures in the shadows of the majestic tree. Members of the public stopped to watch over the railings, as the skaters showed off their skills.
Thanks go to the staff at the Natural History Museum Ice Rink for offering the club such a wonderful evening.
