The Norwich Ice Rink will be back in Castle Mall Gardens this December for all to enjoy.

The Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News rink is made from real ice which promises a smooth, traditional skating experience.

'Snowy Joey' the 50ft snowman bouncy castle will also be making a return over the festive period as an extra treat for little ones.

In 2016 more than 16,000 people took to the ice during one of our skating sessions.
