The World’s Most Popular Show Of All Time

What’s the most successful show in history? It’s Holiday on Ice. “Reviled by critics, adored by coach parties, and seen by many millions – in fact, the show passed the 300 million mark last autumn – Holiday on Ice returns to the Wembley Arena next month, to celebrate its 60th anniversary. In 1988 it won its place in the Guinness Book of Records as most watched show of all time, when a French woman, Isabelle Challier, became the 250 millionth visitor. It has toured to 620 cities in 80 countries. It is now run from Amsterdam, and military-style planning keeps three shows, with 200 skaters, touring the world.”
