Residents of Bognor Regis will be digging out their skates very soon. Ice Skating on the Prom’s return has been confirmed, to the delight of many people.
For the third year running, families will be able to enjoy the fully covered real-ice rink, from November 21 to January 5, with a host of new and traditional treats for everyone to enjoy.
Cllr Dr James Walsh, leader of Arun District Council and cabinet member for economy, said: “We are delighted to be working closely again with the operators to bring the ice skating rink back to Bognor Regis.
“Last year, it was a great success and enjoyed by residents of the district and visitors, too. The town really benefits from the increased foot-fall during the winter months and we hope to see lots of people coming to enjoy it again this year.”
The rink will return to its usual spot next to the Alexandra Theatre at Place St Maur des Fosses. Skating will be available in one-hour time slots throughout the week, with the rink open from 10am-9pm every day of the week (closing only on Christmas Day). Tickets are on sale from ticketcrowd.co.uk
James Cole, Ice Skating on the Prom operator, said: “We had a brilliant time last year, with thousands of people enjoying a skate on an ice rink which was even bigger and better than the year before. This year we are excited to be back again, to see if we can top the huge success that having the bigger rink brought with it with a few more surprises in store.”
