Here's when an ice rink will open in Portsmouth Guildhall - and how long it will stay for
AN ice skating rink will return to Portsmouth city centre this winter, it has been confirmed.
People of all ages will once again be able to put their skates on and get into the festive spirit in Guildhall Square.
The rink will be opening on November 27 and will stay open until January 9, 2022.
It is the first time the seasonal attraction is returning to Portsmouth city centre since 2019, after being cancelled in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic.
Last year, Portsmouth Ice Skating tweeted: ‘Sad times. Portsmouth on ice is officially on ice for a year.
‘We will be back with bells on in 2021 for you to #GetYourSkatesOn. In the meantime, stay safe. Check out our social channels for updates.’
In 2019, sessions cost £10.50 for adults and £9 for children, with family, group and school rates also available.
Hot drinks and seasonal snacks were also available for purchase.
There were also dedicated sessions for those with special education needs and disabilities will also be held during week days, with wheelchair access for all sessions.
The ice rink had a canopy in 2019 after the opening in 2018 was delayed slightly due to warm weather.
