People, it's time to ditch the blanket, put the box of mince pies away and get your skates on, disco style.

The Somerset House ice rink is officially a Christmas tradition in our fine city, synonymous with family festivities, after-work frolics with friends, and the awkward first date.
But things get really interesting when, for a few nights every season, this Christmas stalwart ditches its cozy picture-postcard image and transforms into an open-air club, allowing everyone to dance a little, drink a little, and fall over a lot.
Tonight is the return of Lovesick with DJ Blonde Ambition at the helm of the disco sleigh. Expect a top-notch winter wonderland, complete with lashings of mirror disco balls and multi-coloured bunting. There'll also be pros on hand to show everyone how it’s done (read: humiliate those lacking in coordination). Expect to be serenaded by some glam disco and a few airings of "Ice Ice Baby".
