The ice rink, sponsored by the Sleeping Beauty pantomime at Norwich Theatre Royal opened in Castle Mall gardens and will stay open until Sunday, January 7.

The rink is open every day apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

Debbie Burrell, organiser of the rink, said: “The ice rink has been really busy and it’s been great. We’re happy with how it’s going. We’re urging people to book tickets online to save disappointment.

“A lot of people have travelled in, only to turn up and be disappointed because they have been turned away.”

Sessions on the rink last 45 minutes with a further 15 minutes designated for changing shoes. Tickets cost £12 for adults and £8 for children.

Sophie Urry works for the ice rink. She said: “For health and safety reasons, we can only have a certain number of people on the ice at one time. We take 100 people every hour.”

Opening hours are from 10am to 9pm daily, with the last skate session starting at 8pm.
