Young people will be performing on ice next month as part of Norwich's festive spectacular.

The Eastern Daily Press and its sister newspaper the Norwich Evening News will be bringing an ice rink to the Castle Mall gardens for the Christmas season.

And the 11 to 19-year-olds from the Open Youth Trust will be singing and dancing with their skates on as part of the event.

Archant's ice rink organiser Maryrisa Chappell said: 'It will be brilliant to have the youngsters showing off their skills on the ice rink.

'This is the first time our newspapers have brought the rink to the city, and with Open, the Norwich Figure Skaters, Frozen characters and more, it's gearing up to be an exciting month in the city.'

Open, in the former Barclays building on Bank Plain in Norwich, also runs a volunteer programme aimed at increasing young people's employability through training and the opportunity to volunteer in activities run at Open.

On Point Productions, the group which will be performing, is just one of many activities that children and young people can get involved in at the Open Youth Trust and gives young people a chance to sing, perform and act all in one.
