The centre-piece of this year’s Christmas Celebration is now bookable online
Preparations to bring an ice rink to this year’s Windermere Christmas Celebration have been completed and tickets for the attraction have been released for online sale, organisers said.
The ice rink will be open for skaters of all levels to enjoy on the opening night, Friday, December 13, to as well as being open all day on both Saturday 14 and Sunday 15.
It is the first time an ice rink will be at the event which is held in early December, it will take centre stage among rows of holiday-themed stands, selling locally made craft goods, food and even mulled wine.
Kate Barton, an organiser of Windermere Christmas Celebration, said: “After a lot of planning and preparation we are happy to say that the ice rink at this year’s celebration is bookable online.
“We’re very excited to have the ice rink at this year’s event and we hope everyone else is excited too.
“We would recommend booking in advance as the rink will have a limited capacity, there is also a special offer available for those who would like to book a place for their child at Santa’s Grotto.”
Businesses and community members from around Windermere have come together to help fund and organise the celebration, which Miss Barton said: “is set to be the best one yet.”
James Taskers, the proprietor of Lamplighter Dining Rooms, said “It is wonderful news to hear that the ice rink has been secured for this years Christmas Celebration.
“It is another string to the bow of this wonderful event that is a fabulous addition to the social calendar of Windermere and has transformed a weekend in the offseason into one of the busiest of the year for retail and food and beverage traders alike.
“Most directly the ice rink will generate revenue to help further secure this much-needed event long into the future as it’s continuation should not be taken for granted and the hard work and dedication of the team that host the event, as well as the army of volunteers, should also not be either.
“I would take this opportunity to thank all for the amazing job to date and indeed for successive years”.
