Three reasons why you need to get your skates on and get down to E14

Of course there’s a million things to do in central London but with just a side step to the right, you can experience some incredible events that are slightly off-piste. There’s never a dull moment in Canary Wharf and you might be surprised to know that it’s hitting the mark when it comes to facilitating spectacular events. From arts, to music to live events, there’s something for everyone.  Positioned with excellent transport links, Canary Wharf manages to offer a wealth of choice bringing a new element to entertainment.  There’s not only the many retail outlets and eateries set comfortably against its contemporary skyline, there’s a hub of activity when it comes to getting out and about. Here are just few events that are cranking up the interest in E14……

Luminocity – an absolute must, particularly at this time of year. The ultimate ice skating experience at One Canada Square is a truly a magical event. With ‘under ice’ illuminations, the rink is a cascade of colour. Even if skating isn’t your forte, it’s worth wondering up for a glimpse of this impressive icy spectacle, with a glass of mulled wine in hand. In the interest of health and safety, perhaps the wine is better enjoyed post skating - although for some a cheeky glass might improve their turns.

East Wintergarden is the nerve centre of what’s going on in E14. This magnificent venue has more to offer than you could be possibly need, even in a month of Sundays. Events like the renowned RSC live productions, arts exhibitions and music performances mean that there’s never a dull moment to be had. The venue offers a warm welcome and is a great place to simply hang out and take in the atmosphere.

Feeling Sporty? – Canary Wharf is known for its connection to the city and sky scraping panorama, but it also boasts the most fabulous sports facilities. From events to fun runs, there’s no excuse for failing to shed those extra few pounds after the Christmas binge. If this all sounds on the exhausting side, you could always opt for an encouraging spectator’s position.  Sitting in the comfort of one of the many coffee shops to watch mile 19 of the London marathon as it jogs past your latte, is a good way to participate without actually getting sweaty.

With all this being just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to entertainment, it’s time to get your skates on and take a look at what’s on. Now, back to practising those figure skating moves…..
