WISC Hot Ice Trip 2021, Book Your Tickets Now!!
Dear Skaters, Saturday 21st August 2021, WISC will be organising its 5th Annual trip to go and see the famous HOT ICE show at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Sadly, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic the show was postponed in 2020, but they have honoured the tickets purchased and they have moved our booking to 2021.
This year we have opted to trial a Saturday trip after some feedback from our members in previous years. In light of the Governments recent announcements, we hope that we can still offer coach travel included with the ticket price and a provisional booking on the coach has been made. Depending on the Governments next announcement, there may be limited seating on the coach, that will be done on a first come first served basis. However, we hope that the announcement will allow us to return to normal and take everyone who wants, or feels comfortable to travel on the coach. For those wishing to make their own way there please meet us in the foyer 30 minutes before the show is due to start.
For those travelling by coach, we are going to be meeting from 4pm outside Widnes Ice Rink where a coach will take us to Blackpool at 4.30pm. The show starts at 7pm prompt and we need to be seated at this time as the Ice Skaters use the stairs in the opening routine to the show. The show runs for a minimum of 2 hours with intermission. Part one usually runs for 55 minutes and part two runs for 45 minutes with a 20 minute resurface in between the two sections. We aim to leave Blackpool Pleasure Beach around 9.45pm and the coach will return to Widnes Ice Rink.
The ticket prices are the same as last year as we have aimed to get the same brilliant premium seats in the horse shoe, these tickets on their own cost between £28 - £32 direct on the Pleasure beach website. Our ticket price also includes a seat on the 72-seater WISC coach, should you wish to take it. Taking us from Widnes to Blackpool, leaving all the stress of driving to Blackpool out of the equation. Our Ticket prices are £20 for members and £25 for non-members. All members under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and supervised. (Please note, if the child is the member and the parent is not, the ticket will be £20 for the child, but the parent will be classed as the non- member at £25.) The club is aiming to take as many people as we can on the coach, but this may be limited if some restrictions are still in place. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. The club has purchased these tickets upfront so we get a fantastic discounted rate on the seats and a coach. We do need your help to make sure we get as many of you coming as we can so the club does not waste money providing fun events for its members. The show is one you will walk away from with a real buzz for what you have seen on the ice and it will give you a new sense of excitement around skating.
We feel it would be nice if club members could wear their ice skating jackets or any WISC tops so we all stand out as a group, but it also advertises / promotes the rink we come from. Please don’t panic if you do not own a club jacket or a top, we will not make you go and purchase one. We just think it would be a nice idea to promote the club and rink we come from.
Please do fill in the information on the booking form online clearly and do not miss any important information out. Information such as phone numbers and full names will help us ensure we can keep in contact with you if you become separated from the group at any point. PLEASE NOTE the coach will NOT wait!!! You must be punctual or advise the organiser on the night of any issues. We hope this will be an enjoyable event for all and we look forward to seeing you on the trip. Regards Si Wareing W.I.S.C Chairman.
