Skate on down to the shops between Christmas and New Year and glide across the synthetic ice rink.

Located outside Primark in Commercial Road, Portsmouth, between Boxing Day and New Year's Day, the Icekapades Synthetic Skating Rink gives those that are being dragged around the stores the chance for some amusement whilst their partner shops.

Children and adults can lace up and hit the ice, with admission costing 2.50 for adults and 2 for children.

The rink is open daily from 10am until 4pm (subject to weather conditions) and all profits made from the rink will go to owners Park Community Venture in Leigh Park, which gives money to charities and funds activities for children and residents.
