The South Bank Centre has become the home of British skating since it became an architectual dead spot in the early seventies. The efforts to reclaim its original size after reductions made in recent years have been thwarted as uncertainty surrounds about the under-croft’s future. This follows one part of the South Bank Centre that has already been turned into shops with rumours the rest is sure to follow. A petition has been put together to prevent any further distruction to the area which is important for the skating community in Londonand in addition a film ‘Save Southbank’ has been made in response to the uncertain future of the South Bank, both prjects started by Toby Shaull with the skaters best interests. So get on down and support the effort as the premier will take place at the Prince Charles Cinema, 7 Leicester Place, (Leicester Square tube) on the 7th of February at 7.45pm.
Entry is free, but you must get a ticket from Slam City Skates. No tickets will be given out on the evening.
