Nov. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Torvill and Dean became the highest scoring figure skaters of all time after achieving twelve perfect 6.0’s at the 1984 winter Olympics. Bringing skating to the forefront of the British public, the skating duo fast became and remain one of Britain’s best loved couples, starring in ITV’s Dancing on Ice.

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.
Mike Thomas, Centre Manager at McArthurGlen’s York Designer Outlet, says: “We are thrilled to announce that world renowned skaters Torvill and Dean will be launching our spectacular Winter Wonderland event and we envision the evening to be hugely exciting. With our fantastic selection of brands at up to 60 per cent less and plenty of free parking, this is a fantastic festive destination for all the family.”

Maria Farrugia, at Lunchbox Productions, says: “Following the success of last year, this will be the second year that The Ice Factor is returning to McArthurGlen’s York Designer Outlet. With Torvill and Dean opening this year’s event, it is set to be even more exciting for festive shoppers.”

The outlet will be open for shoppers until 8pm on Saturday 26th November and The Ice Factor will be open from Saturday 26th November 2011 until 8th January 2012, 9:30am until 9.15pm daily (except Christmas Day).
