London Ice Sculpting Festival, one of the capital's favourite free art events, is set to make a glistening return to Wood Wharf from 10 -12 January.

Catch all the action at this magnificent annual festival as ten teams from around the world wield chisels and chainsaws competing to create mesmerising works of art from blocks of crystal clear ice. This year’s themes are Fabulous Fashion for the Big Block Competition and River Life for the Freestyle and Singles.

An unforgettable weekend of competition and family fun at Canary Wharf with winter treats including Masterclasses, the Ice Graffiti Wall, a Winter Food Market, live music, craft workshops and face painting.

    The afternoon was quite interesting.What I foun fascinating was how they used ice to create a work of art that you can only fleetingly enjoy. I was impressed to see an entrant from Africa. Almost seems like a version of cool runnings. The pub was warm and cosy and the company I enjoyed very much.

    I can't say I was that impressed with the ice sculpting, they weren't very imaginative. The best one, I think, was the Belgium entry of the little girl, which was not far from the exit.

    Unfortunately when I arrived @ the Ledger Building pub, I couldn't see a table displaying Ken's Group and as it's my first meeting, and I don't know the other members, I was unable to identify any of the group which was disappointing and it seems other members had similar problems meeting the group.
