Tickets for Leicester’s spectacular festive ice rink are now on sale, as the countdown to Christmas gets under way.

Featuring real ice, the attraction will be a key part of the city’s Christmas celebrations and will sit at the heart of a winter wonderland in Jubilee Square.

The spectacular ice rink will open to the public on Saturday 9 December. It will be huge 30×15 metres long and feature a clear roof, allowing people to skate whatever the weather.

People who want to buy tickets as gifts, or who are keen to reserve their slot on the ice, can snap them up now.

Penguin-shaped skating aids will be available for younger skaters to hire, and special themed nights – including Ice Discos – will be part of the busy events programme.
