London’s favourite winter entertainment is making its much-anticipated return to the capital city this month. Because there really is nothing like a spot of competitive socialising to get you in the festive spirit, hey?
Sliding back into London’s Southbank Centre on October 13, The Curling Club will be offering the ultimate wintery experience to curling-connoisseurs (and those of us who have never touched a curling stone in their life and would primarily be going for the après-ski activities).
Inspired by the popular Winter Olympic sport, The Curling Club will be offering guests the authentic curling experience of gliding stones down a fit-for-purpose sheet, but without the need for ice or specialist footwear. The Curling Club’s ambassador (and four-time Olympic champ, might I add), Eve Muirhead OBE, will also be returning to the Southbank spot. Basically, this is the closest I’ll ever get to competing in an Olympic sport, and I’m thrilled at that prospect.
The banks of the River Thames provide the perfect setting for this quintessential Alpine experience (okay, perhaps Chamonix or Val-d’Isère would be preferable, but the Southbank isn’t far off, right?). The Curling Club will boast five curling sheets for players to show-off their skills and a whole host of après-ski fun for after the curling is done.
Alpine-inspired street food classics will be served up, so guests can gorge on the likes of burgers, bratwurst and raclette. Beer, wine and a selection of festive cocktails will also be on offer, courtesy of Brew & Press. Live music and entertainment will add an extra sprinkling of magic to this winter wonderland, making this a truly brr-illiant way to spend a chilly winter evening.
The Curling Club will be opening its doors ahead of this years legendary Southbank Centre Winter Festival and is inviting Londoners and out-of-towners to come and join the party in their cosy, twinkling den of festivity.
Perfect for date nights, fun with friends or even work Christmas parties; The Curling Club has something that will appeal to everybody. So, head on down to the Southbank Centre and have a go at one of the coolest festive activities in town.
The Curling Club will be at the Southbank Centre from October 13, 2023 until February 11, 2024 and will be open daily from 11am-11pm. Tickets are on sale now with a range of price packages to suit all booking types. Find out more and plan your visit here.
