Leicester’s Christmas ice rink is set to return to the city centre next month.
The ice rink has been a big part of Leicester’s festive events in recent years with more than 25,000 tickets being sold for it in 2019 alone.
Last year, due to Covid the rink did not appear. However, due to restrictions being lessened this year, it is returning.
Appearing alongside the ice rink will be a Ferris wheel with various other holiday themed items appearing in the city.
Reacting to the news, a Leicester mother said about taking her daughter to go ice skating: ‘’It’ll be a great experience.’’
Another older couple added that they’re both: ‘‘Glad to see it return,’’ despite not planning on skating themselves due to previous injuries.
Holly Dobson, a student at De Montford University said: ‘’I cannot wait to get back on the ice.’’
As with previous years the ice rink will be hosted by Icescape.
The rink opens from Thursday, December 2, to January 3, in Jubilee Square. It will be open to all ages, both night and day, sessions last 45 minutes on the rink with hired ice-skates and skate-aids available. There are also quieter sessions available as well as reduced prices for off-peak sessions.
