This year Chill at the Queen Mary, the seaside port transforms into a marketplace where you can shop and purchase foods from all over the world.

Boasting an ice-adventure park, the event invites audiences to embark on an International Holiday Expedition. All around them, attendees find a marketplace that offers traditional food and drink fare from all over the world with live entertainment that celebrates how the holidays are spent worldwide.

The ice-themed rides – like the ice bicycling track, Amsterdam Bumper Boats, ice tubing and skating – offer a fun twist on attractions. You can purchase packages that include a selection of activities and tastes of the event or pay as you go for everything at Chill in a flexible manner. There are also live performances in various areas, such as aerialists, and music from all over the world.

There’s even a Christmas light show around the Christmas Tree with gorgeous light nets moving in sync with holiday music. Then there’s of course family fun fare, like meeting Santa and Mrs. Claus, as well as hot cocoa stations and stocking building. There’s something to do with the whole family, nd while there’s no stand-out main attraction like the Ice Kingdom or the “Alice in Winterland” Lantern Maze, there is still some holiday fun to be had.
