Tick­ets for ice skat­ing

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

SKATERS can now start plan­ning their 2018 vis­its to Le­ices­ter’s Christ­mas ice rink.

Book­ing has of­fi­cially opened for the at­trac­tion, which had a suc­cess­ful first year in 2017.

Le­ices­ter City Coun­cil says this year’s Ju­bilee Square skat­ing will be “even bet­ter”, with a 50 per cent big­ger rink.

A spe­cial smooth­ing ma­chine will also take to the ice be­tween ses­sions, to pro­vide vis­i­tors an im­proved skat­ing sur­face. The rink will join the Wheel of Light at the square on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6.

Le­ices­ter City Coun­cil’s fes­ti­vals and events man­ager Mag­gie Shutt said: “It might seem early, but we know schools, clubs and cor­po­rate clients like to make their plans well in ad­vance.

“This year we’re pro­vid­ing a much big­ger ice rink with a much bet­ter skat­ing sur­face, which we hope peo­ple of all ages and abil­i­ties will en­joy as part of a fam­ily out­ing or a Christ­mas night out.”

Skat­ing ses­sions are avail­able to be booked in 45-minute slots.

Tick­ets can be booked from Visit Le­ices­ter on Gal­lowtree Gate.
