At 6pm on the evening, the skating champions will be turning on the 30ft Christmas tree lights, positioned in the centre of The Ice Factor 900sqft ice rink, as well as taking to the ice to sign autographs and pose for pictures.
The Winter Wonderland, which is open from Saturday 26th November until 8th January 2012, will also include traditional fair rides and 20 beautifully styled traditional log cabin stalls offering everything from handmade gifts to festive food, all surrounding the ice rink.
As well as exclusive offers from over 120 leading designer and high street brands, including Calvin Klein, Kurt Geiger and LK Bennett, all at up to 60 per cent less, there will be exclusive performances from local champion figure skater Toni Murray (currently ranked third in Britain under 19’s) and the opportunity to watch Santa arriving to his grotto. Combined with all that the Winter Wonderland has to offer, the outlet is the perfect place to find all your Christmas gifts and party wear while enjoying a great day out.
