The childrens Christmas ice show is our longest running main fund raising event. Our ice show, which is now in its 81st year is something very special to us and to our audience.
There are approximately 500 costumes to be stitched and fitted for the cast of 75. All organised by a team of volunteers who give their time for our cast and chosen charities.
All our skaters love to perform and are given the opportunity to work with our professional Coach, Director and Choreographer David Walsingham. Many of them go on to skate in professional shows such as Dancing On Ice, Holiday on ice, Disney on Ice and Blackpool’s Hot Ice Show. There are more skaters from Blackpool in ice show’s around the world than any other town.
We are a not for profit organisation and after the costs of puttng on our show, all all monies raised from BIDCA front of house and show ticket sales go to local childrens charities.
The Charity's objectives are:
To advance the education of the general public in all aspect of ice skating;
To provide facilities for ice skating in the interests of social welfare for children under 18 years of age through the provision of training, recreational and other leisure time occupation with the object of improving their conditions of life;
To relieve, within the Fylde coast area of Lancashire, poverty, sickness and distress arising therefrom by the making of grants of money or monies worth to individuals under 18 years of age in conditions of need (‘the beneficiaries’) or organisations dealing with such beneficiaries so as to relieve such need.
