An outdoor ice rink will return to Preston this Christmas.Advertisement
Running from Saturday 14 December for three weeks the ice rink is to be positioned on the Flag Market.
The rink opens from 11am to 9pm on Monday – Saturday, and close slightly earlier at 7pm on Sundays.
During late night shopping nights (Wednesdays and Thursdays) there will be skating until 10pm.
Log cabins and children’s fairground rides are to be on the Flag Market alongside the rink, plus there will be food and drink.
Councillor Tom Burns, cabinet member for leisure and culture, said: “The Flag Market transformed into a Winter wonderland will add to the Christmas atmosphere in the city centre.
“Working with the Business Improvement District (BID) we have put together a great city centre offer which will give shoppers a great experience this Christmas.”
A 45-minute skate session costs £6 and includes skate hire.
The last skate is an hour before closing.
