Cast of The Nutcracker open brand-new Portsmouth Ice Rink

The New Theatre Royal and Portsmouth Ice Rink celebrated the start of the festive season in style with the announcement of a bumper family prize giveaway for the ultimate festive day out, which will include tickets to The Nutcracker and a family ticket for the ice rink.

Stars of The Nutcracker Caitlin Anderson, Neil Jennings and Shaun Mendum joined the Lord Mayor and other special guests to open the brand-new ice rink in Portsmouth’s Guildhall Square.

Managing Director of Portsmouth Ice Rink Ed White said:

“We are so excited to be here in Portsmouth for the first time and the support from our neighbours at New Theatre Royal has been fantastic. It’s great to be celebrating some of the fantastic attractions and events in Portsmouth this winter and we wish the cast of the Nutcracker all the best for the season ahead. We can’t wait to see the performance ourselves!”

VIP guests were also treated to performances from Gosport Ice Skating Team and the Fine Voice Academy, as well as the opportunity to enjoy a skate.
