Shortened ice show costs Brighton council £180k
12:10pm Tuesday 10th July 2012 in News
A popular skating show’s decision to cut down to just three days has cost the city at least £180,000.
Last year 37,000 tickets were sold for the Holiday on Ice extravaganza at the Brighton Centre, which lasted for two weeks.
In 2009 the show was three weeks long. But this year the show’s promoters said the run had been dramatically shortened due to international commitments.
In a budget forecast report to Brighton and Hove City Council, it has been revealed the decision has cost the venue £180,000.
This is without the knock-on effect of spending in bars, restaurants and other attractions.
The tour, celebrating its 34th year in Brighton, will arrive in the city on November 22 rather than its usual slot in January.
