Gabrielle Ray – Great Rinking Carnival -The Sporting Life – Friday 26th January 1912

GREAT RINKING CARNIVAL

 AN ORIGINAL SCHEME AT HOLLAND PARK.

 

On Wednesday next the great roller rink at Holland Park will be governed by King Carnival. Probably there is no building which is so capable of being decorated in a thoroughly festive style as that at Holland Park, and its easy get-at-ableness from all parts of London – it is passed by many motorbus services, besides being less than a glance from Shepherd’s Bush tube station – makes the matter of travel quite easy. Every taxi driver knows the way there.

Skating starts at 9 p.m., and finishes at 2.30 a.m. on Thursday. The admission 2s. 6d., bd., with ls. extra for skating. Prizes are offered for the three prettiest and the three most original costumes worn by ladies, and for the three most effective costumes worn by gentlemen. The moving picture of colour and beauty, eccentricity and comicality, should make this carnival the centre of attraction; but if that were not sufficient, Mr F. H. Payne, whose experience in providing amusement is second to none, has arranged a list of judges whose presence alone should ensure a large public attendance.

Their names Mdlle. Maria Canni, whose performance as the Madonna in “The Miracle,” another of Mr Payne’s great enterprises, has entranced thousands who have witnessed the remarkable spectacle, the Misses Gertie Millar, Jessie Bateman, Grace Lane, Florence Smithson, Gabrielle Ray, Olive May, Millie Legarde, Constance Drever, Phyllis Dare, Clara Evelyn, Ethel Dane, and Blanche Stocker; and Messrs Edward Royce, Alfred Lester, Geo. Grossmith, Kenneth Douglas, George Graves, and Joseph Coyne. This should be a night of nights.
