Ice skating displays from local skating teams and professionals marked the opening of the 2014 Lincoln Ice Rink.
The 25 metre by 15 metre rink in City Square was opened on November 29 by the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Brent Charlesworth.
The rink will remain open until December 31, and can also be booked for school and corporate events as well as individual sessions.
It will only close on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but will otherwise operate from 10am to 9pm daily – with the last skating session starting at 8pm.
Lincoln BIG Events & Promotions Organiser Rachel Hanson said: “This year we are offering extended family sessions, to enable those under the age of three to skate (although older children may skate too), and of course our popular penguin skating aids will be available to help children to make the most of their experience on the ice.”
“Watch out also for the opportunities to skate with Elsa & Anna from the film ‘Frozen’ during some of our family sessions.”
At peak periods, child/concessions are £5.50, adults are £7.50 and group tickets are also available. Off peak prices will be a discount of a pound.
