Norwich Ice Rink will be running it's first quiet session for people with disabilities such as autism.
The session will provide a controlled environment with no music and fewer skaters, to give people with disabilities the chance to experience ice skating.
Victoria Blake, head of events, said: “After listening to feedback from the public we are pleased to be able to offer a quiet session for the first time.
“We understand that not everyone appreciates the music so this is another way for everyone to be able to enjoy ice skating in a controlled environment.”
Sponsored by Bakers & Larners of Holt, the rink will open in Castle Mall Gardens between December 14 - January 6.
Skaters who require special assistance for the quiet session must be accompanied by a competent skater.
The session will take place on December, 21 between 9am – 10am. To book, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
