Ice sculptors get their chisels out to welcome in the new year at this annual event taking place throughout Canary Wharf's public spaces. Over the course of the three days, the pros will compete to create chilly works of art with the themes 'The Wonders of the Universe' and 'Infinity'. There are also free masterclasses (places are limited and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis; sign up on arrival for the next available slot. Age 12+) taking place in the shopping malls and at Wood Wharf, where you can learn the basic techniques of ice sculpting under the watchful eye of trained sculptors. Other activities include a snow pit (with real snow), an ice graffiti wall, ice chess, a winter market and a northern lights laser show.
