Lancaster ice rink to open this weekend

November 19, 2019

Lancaster's outdoor ice skating rink is taking shape ahead of its opening weekend.

'Lancaster On Ice' in Dalton Square will open to the public at 9am this Saturday (November 23).

The rink will then be open seven days a week until January 5, except Christmas Day.

Final work is taking place ahead of the opening.

A giant observation wheel will be part of the 'Lancaster on Ice' set-up this year.

This will arrive on December 9 ahead of its opening on December 12.

Lancaster On Ice, the brainchild of Hannah and Martin Horner who own nearby pub The Borough, recently won Best Large Visitor Event at the Lancashire Tourism Awards.

Beyond Radio will supply the music soundtrack for skaters as they circle the ice.

Lancaster on Ice will be open from 9am to 10pm on Saturdays, Sundays and school Christmas holidays and from noon to 10pm Monday to Friday during term time.
