Canary Wharf transformed into a frozen wonderland 17-19 November, which offered an exciting mix of free activities for visitors to enjoy. Families and friends journeyed through a frozen ice trail viewing some of the most amazing ice sculptures made by the world’s best ice artists across three days.
In Jubilee Park, visitors discovered a frozen ice trail of 15 specially carved ice sculptures, each one carved into a different bird or animal, highlighting endangered species.
There were four big block carvings where visitors witnessed showstopping live ice sculpting by international artists using chainsaws and chisels.
For visitors who wanted to have a go themselves, there were free ice carving masterclasses. These 20 minute sessions gave participants all the tools and tips needed to sculpt a polar bear. In total, over 3,200 people participated! Ice graffiti walls were also be dotted around for ages 5 and up to make their (temporary) mark.
