Queens presents Pride on Ice to end World Pride London

Ice skating Queens

On the weekend after Pride London, Saturday 13 July, Queens will put on a finale celebration of the joy that was, in its own unique way. Queens is an ice rink and bowling alley on Queensway, right in the middle of London and this month, they’ll turn out a partnership with Pride in London to host the official ultimate post-Pride cool down. Pride In London will dominate the 1200m2 ice rink and the Sin-Bin Bar by MEATliquor to celebrate and monumentalise the Pride Jubilee, as well as marking the conclusion of this year’s celebrations which have truly made us all proud to be Londoners.  It’ll be an all ice-skating, all performing, DJ-fuelled, psychedelically-lit, eating and drinking extravaganza all under one roof. Complete with entertainment throughout by hosts including Crayola the Queen and her Drag Team, live PAs from Pride’s Got Talent & Flawless Talent and even a special guest DJ, set to be spinning over rink till Midnight, there’s a lot happening.
