This holiday season, London’s favourite winter entertainment, The
Curling Club, will make its much anticipated return. Inviting curling enthusiasts and festive
party goers, it promises the ultimate winter wonderland experience.

Gliding into two iconic locations, The Curling Club makes its glistening return to London and will
bring festivities to the Southbank Centre from 1st November – 3rd January 2023 and The
Shack Takeover in Twickenham, from 30th November – 24th December 2022.

Boasting the most dashing après-ski nostalgia, the glistening pistes of the Alps will now lie upon
London’s River Thames at the Southbank Centre and at The Shack Takeover, adjacent to the
renowned Shack, in Twickenham – two ideal locations for the party season. Based on the
Winter Olympic sport of Curling, The Curling Club’s ambassador and four time Olympic
champion Eve Muirhead OBE, will also be returning. Having captained Team GB to gold glory
in February this year, now guests can emulate this by gliding stones down a fit-for-purpose
sheet, providing an authentic experience without the need for ice, or specialist footwear.

A headline feature enticing people to this year’s legendary Winter Festival at the Southbank
Centre, The Curling Club will allow strollers beneath the twinkling lights alongside the River
Thames to stop and embrace competitive socialising in its most magical form. Contributing to
this wonderland spectacular will be live entertainment, music, alpine inspired street food and
cocktails galore to ensure seasonal cheer inside and outside the venue. There will be a total of
five curling sheets, allowing couples and groups of up to ten per sheet to enjoy this
quintessential game. You and your guests are invited to attend every day from 11am to 11pm.

The second location for the adored pop-up is ‘The Shack Takeover’ in Twickenham, which
has a 300 person capacity and three curling sheets for the taking. Available Wednesday to
Sunday and from 11am to 11 or 12pm – dependent on the day – groups of all sizes and ages
can also enjoy a feast of wintery street food and drink, complete with live entertainment and

Eve Muirhead OBE commented on the return of the Curling Club, “The Curling Club is the
perfect opportunity to experience the intense and suspenseful sport that is curling. Combining
the recent & continued success of Team GB’s curling achievements and the popularity of last
year’s spectaculars, it’s a hugely exciting way to celebrate the festive season – and I am so
proud to be part of it again. I can’t wait to meet everyone at both of these fantastic venues.”

David Lawlor, CEO at The Curling Club, also commented on the new location news, “After
last year’s extravagant pop up in the heart of the City I’m very excited for this year, because the
Southbank Centre is the ideal place for making curling accessible to all this winter.
“The spring board of British Olympic Gold, thanks to an outstanding performance from Eve and
team GB, means all people, young and old can enjoy curling the night away like Olympic
sporting heroes. Will you be in the rings or on the button at the Southbank Centre this
November and December?”
