Conga lines are great. Ice skating is also great. So when you put the two together it’s pretty obvious what’s going to happen. An attempt at the world record for the longest conga line on ice, of course.
From 6-8pm tonight (Tuesday November 12), this daring act of genius will be underway at Canary Wharf’s, Canada Square Park ice rink. The ice rink, which opened in late October for its ninth season, features your classic festive illuminated, tree-lined skate path and should be the perfect setting for the world record attempt.
To beat the record (yes, this record already exists), 300 conga-lovers are needed to strap on some skates and get on the ice. Registration begins at 6pm, after which an expert coach will be offering skating tips before the record attempt at 7.15pm. From 7.30pm participants can enjoy a free skate and celebrate their feat with a cup of mulled wine from Boisdale. There is no ticket price, but a £5 donation is suggested. All the money raised will go towards BBC Children In Need.
Tuesday November 12, 6pm-8.30pm at Canada Square Park ice rink. For more info go to canarywharf.com.
