Coventry will be skating in a winter wonderland this Christmas

Coventry Editorial 10th Oct, 2022   0

COVENTRY will be skating in a Winter Wonderland from November 25 as the city centre will be transformed into a hub of festive fun, complete with an ice rink.

The city council has partnered with Visit Coventry and Coventry BID to bring the festive experience, which will be on Broadgate until January 8.

There will also be food stands, a light curtain backdrop and festive music to get guests rocking around the Christmas Tree.

The council’s cabinet member for events, Coun Abdul Salam Khan said: “The ice rink experience builds upon the legacy of the previous two years during our time as the UK City of Culture 2021 and will form a key centrepiece attraction as part of the city centre’s bigger Winter Wonderland offer.”

Coun Patricia Hetherton, Cabinet Member for City Services, added:“We appreciate that everyone is living with challenges around the cost of living at the moment and the knock-on effects that may be having on traders and businesses as well as residents.

“Therefore, it’s important that we continue to actively promote our city centre and what it has to offer, whether that is spending time shopping, sampling the many food and drink options or enjoying events such as the festive ice rink.”

The ice rink will be open seven days a week and will only be closed on Christmas Day.

Prices start from £6.95 for Go CV Plus cardholders and £10 for those without cards.
