WORLDKINGS - Worldkings News - Europe Records Institute (EURI) Blackpool Pleasure Beach Arena: World’s the oldest purpose-built ice theatre

08-06-2022

(WorldKings.org) Blackpool Pleasure Beach Arena is the oldest purpose-built ice theatre which opened in October 1937. The theatre has been in continuous use ever since.

The Blackpool Pleasure Beach Arena is an ice rink situated in Blackpool, England. It was originally opened in 1937 as an "ice theatre" for ice shows. Ice hockey was first played at the bizarrely-shaped rink - featuring a horseshoe-shaped ice pad and a squared-off stage at one end - in 1939.

This dynamic arena comprises a dance studio and is the home ground of the immensely popular hot ice show. Whether just learning how to skate or are a seasoned veteran, the facility has programs and sessions for everyone. This multi-purpose venue can also be rented by patrons for celebratory and corporate events.

The ice can be paved over to facilitate concerts, or large gatherings.
