London, UK - Kensington Palace is about to open its doors to the public this Christmas, and it's bringing a delightful holiday attraction with a green twist. Introducing 'ICE,' a brand-new event set to infuse festive cheer into the historic Kensington Palace grounds located in the heart of central London.
A Chilly Wonderland Awaits
'ICE' promises a magical experience for visitors, featuring an ice rink, an array of Christmas shopping opportunities, mouthwatering food stalls, and exclusive VIP experiences. This exciting revelation comes via a newly launched Instagram account dedicated to the event.
Sustainability Takes Center Stage
One noteworthy aspect of 'ICE' is its strong commitment to sustainability. The event aligns itself with the principles of the Terra Carta initiative, which aims to develop sustainable business markets. As part of this commitment, a £1 donation from every ticket sale will contribute to a nature project dedicated to funding biodiversity and habitat restoration initiatives across the UK.
Moreover, 'ICE' is taking tangible steps to minimize its carbon footprint. The event will incorporate HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) powered generators, which can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 90 percent, ensuring a more eco-friendly experience.
A Green Vendor Ecosystem
Not stopping at the event's core sustainability initiatives, the organizers are determined to ensure that every vendor and contractor involved aligns with their commitment to sustainable practices. This holistic approach aims to reduce the environmental impact of the event as a whole.
A Sneak Peek into the Magic
In a social media post, the organizers shared their enthusiasm for the event: "Located within the iconic Kensington Palace grounds, get ready to experience festive fun, stylish shopping, and VIP experiences with a unique view of the palace clock tower. Putting the planet, nature, and people at the heart of everything we do, this exciting winter village has everything you need to create magical memories to last a lifetime."
