Ice and easy does it at Christmas

The National Ice Centre has Christmas all wrapped up again this year as the Capital One Olympic-sized Ice Rink is transformed into an enchanted starry night sky Christmas Rink, with thousands of lights and seasonal decorations.

The Christmas Rink will be opened by a special, yet-to-be-revealed celebrity guest on Monday, December 10, and will run until Sunday, January 6.

This year, the National Ice Centre has introduced a new online booking system meaning customers will be able to guarantee tickets for a specific skating session, avoid the queues, book online and print tickets at home. Tickets for the Christmas Rink are available to buy now.

Special events taking place throughout the festive period include a Christmas Skate with the Nottingham Panthers event on December 13, a Capital FM Christmas Party night on December 15, a Christmas Neon and Bubble Foam Party on December 21 and special Parent and Toddler Parties on December 19 and 31.

Advanced booking is now available for parties of ten or more, with discounted rates available for all groups.
