REMINDER- Coventry's festive ice rink will be opening in the city centre tomorrow

Coventry Editorial 24th Nov, 2022   0

COVENTRY will be skating in a Winter Wonderland tomorrow (November 25) as Broadgate opens up its new festive ice rink.

As well as the ice rink, which will be open to people of all ages and abilities, there will be plenty of festive food stands, Christmas music and lights to get visitors in the holiday mood.

Last week saw the Christmas lights switch on in the city centre, with Coventrians able to experience the festive fun through to early January.

Public bookings of the ice rink will be available from 6pm tomorrow, and afterwards, it will be open seven days a week, excluding Christmas Day.

Coventry City Council partnered with Visit Coventry and Coventry BID to bring the experience to the city.

The council’s cabinet member for events, Coun Abdul Salam Khan, said: “As we look forward to the festive season, the opening of the city’s ice rink in the heart of our city centre will bring more excitement and festive-filled fun to visitors and residents.

“This winter we are not only bringing the lovely ice rink to Broadgate, but there’s also a bigger winter wonderland offer for people to enjoy and make the most of their time in Coventry.

“We appreciate there’s some challenging times for everyone at the moment, including the knock-on effect for local businesses and traders.

“However, many people do look forward with their friends, families, and children to this magical time of year, so want to invite people to come and join us for this unique ice-skating experience, support our city centre and soak up the festive spirit in Coventry.”

Tickets for the ice rink start from £6.50 for children and £7.50 for adults.
