I know, I know, it’s the hottest day of the year so far and I’m writing about ICE! Well, to be fair I never promised you any sort of sensible behaviour when I set up the blog. And also, it’s not just any ice, it’s the Disney on Ice Magical Ice Festival, back at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on Weds 29th April!
My lovely girl in the middle and her two friends had a brilliant time at last year’s show, and when I broke the news to her that we have been invited back this year, she nearly popped with excitement. And, despite being a very grumpy and cynical 43 year old, I’m actually a bit excited too!
This year there’s an all-new lineup, with something for little ones and grumpy, cynical adults alike! My childhood favourites Mickey, Minnie and Pluto will be introducing us to fun, frolics and I’m sure the odd comedy moment with characters from The Little Mermaid, Tangled and Beauty and the Beast performing on the ice; however the icing on the cake as far as my girl and her friends are concerned is the fact that Anna, Elsa and the Frozen crew are making a special appearance! (I’m especially pleased about Sven the Reindeer, I feel we share some vital characteristics, particularly the ability to convey our in depth and complex feelings with a variety of carefully timed snorts).
The Disney On Ice Magical Ice Festival is part way through a UK tour, and will be calling at Belfast, London, Cardiff, Nottingham and Leeds over the next few weeks, so there’s still plenty of time for you to get tickets for what promises to be a truly spectacular event. And of course my girl and I will be reporting back after the event!
