Figure skating legends Torvill and Dean are coming to Bristol Hippodrome this Christmas.

This will be our first visit to The Bristol Hippodrome and we are very much looking forward to performing in the city

We’re really looking forward to bringing Cinderella to life on skates and spending the festive season in Bristol.We can’t wait for Christmas now!’

– Christopher Dean

The pair shot to fame at the Sarajevo 1984 Winter Olympics when they became the highest scoring figure skaters of all time.

Torvill and Dean continued to skate together for a further 14 years winning numerous professional and amateur competitions, as well as choreographing for the English National Ballet and other tours.

For this Bristol Hippodrome performance, they'll swap their ice-skates for inline skates - a type of roller skate.
