Get your skates on tonight for a free session at Norwich's open air ice rink - that was the message as organisers prepared for an early launch.

To celebrate the return of the magical rink at The Forum everyone is invited to skate for free when it opens one night early.

And to make it even more special stars from Norwich Theatre Royal pantomime production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves like Caitlin Stasey and Richard Gauntlett will be making a guest appearance in full costume.

Free sessions start at 5pm and run on the hour until 8pm with places allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Officially opening to the public tomorrow, November 29, The Forum's ice rink has become a staple part of Norwich's winter calendar signalling the start of the countdown to Christmas whether you are an able skater or an absolute beginner.
