The coolest halfterm outing

Teresa Fisher

This year’s Ski and Snowboard Shows promise to be especially family oriented and brimming with entertainment and exciting hands-on activities for adults and children, as well as some amazing giveaways.

The Manchester show runs from 25-27 October at EventCity; the London Show is from 30th October- 3 November at Earls Court 2.

Both dates are scheduled to coincide with half-term – this date was trialled last year and proved extremely popular with record numbers of visitors passing through the doors.  It should be an extra-high turnout this year too… all kids under 11 have free entry to the show!


The London show is the UK’s largest winter sports show.  Earls Court will be transformed into a winter wonderland with ice rinks, ski slopes, tubing and curling.  There will over 250 stands, including all the top brands to kit out the family for the season ahead, plus plenty of après-ski-style bars with alpine cuisine and wine tasting.

While parents marvel at the tricks and antics of freestylers; glean the latest travel tips of ski and boarding experts from around the world; and plan their forthcoming family ski breaks, the kiddies will be kept amused on the inflatable slides, ice-skating or petting real huskies and reindeer.  Children aged 4+ will also be offered exclusive ski lessons, and snowboarding lessons for those age 7+.

It sounds to us like the coolest family outing for half-term!
