For those who remember the 1980s heydey of Rollerama, the retro craze has made a comeback in Thame thanks to husband and wife team Jason and Jenny Jolliffe.

Anyone aged from five to 55 can lace up a pair of rollerskates and enjoy the energetic two-hour sessions to disco tunes at Thame Leisure Centre twice a month.

Jason, who first fell in love with skating 30 years ago when he was given his first ever pair of skates, said: “We want to prove that roller skating is not just a 1980s craze but a fun evening out, and great form of exercise.”

Skates can be hired at the sessions, so there’s no need to buy your own. Visit for more.
