Ice Rink opens with Fearne ice sculpture

08 November 2007

A life-sized ice sculpture of Fearne Cotton, and the TV presenter herself, helped celebrate the opening of the Natural History Museum's spectacular Ice Rink today.

The popular 1000-square-metre rink has a magical setting in the Museum's east lawn and returns for the third year running.

The Ice Rink is presented with British Airways and Fearne was voted the 'Princess of Cool' in their Who's cool in London survey to mark the opening.

Celebrity skating

Fearne joins a long list of celebrities who have chosen the Museum Ice Rink as the place to skate.  Last year, Spice Girls Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell, were spotted practising their moves there along with Orlando Bloom, Jose Mourinho and Jonathan Ross.

Fearne Cotton said, ' the Natural History Museum is a breathtaking setting and makes this a special place to skate in London this winter.'

'The rink is a great example of how the capital is literally one of the coolest cities in the world.'

Katherine Whitton, head of Marketing Communications at British Airways, added 'It is great that Fearne has been voted London's 'Princess of Cool' today at the Ice Rink.'

'As partner to the Ice Rink for a second year, British Airways is delighted to be welcoming Londoners and visitors to the capital to enjoy the best of British festive entertainment.'

The Museum Ice Rink is open from 8 November 2007 until 20 January 2008 , Monday to Sunday, 10.00-22.00.
