Having spent most weekends of my primary school years zooming around Roller City in Southend, I was delighted to hear that the people behind Roller Disco at the Renaissance Rooms in Vauxhall have erected a temporary skating rink at The O2.
Could a skating session in Greenwich heal the pain of Roller City’s sad closure in the early 90s?
The skating is retro-80s chic – proper chunky quad roller skates instead of inlines, and a range of different music nights are planned to coincide with the various artists playing at the Arena.
Marshals are on hand to help you get started if necessary, and to show you a few advanced moves if you’re feeling brave.
For the best roller disco experience, book the late session (8-10pm) so you can enjoy the funky disco lights after dark!
