Having a whirl at Windsor On Ice!

Windsor On Ice has been in full swing for a fortnight already, providing family fun and exhilaration for young and old alike!

This year’s attractions and events have been more popular than ever, with hundreds of visitors since we opened the ice rink to the public on Saturday 26th November.

To begin the skating season with a whirl, Anthea Turner – who is currently appearing in Jack & The Beanstalk at the Theatre Royal in Windsor – joined us for the Gala Night pre-opening party on Friday 25th November. This is a special evening we provide for our partner RBWM and to say thank you to our sponsors – SMC Ford, Heart FM and Cotswold Outdoor.

Three years after her appearance on Dancing on Ice, Anthea Turner donned her ice skates to officially open the ice rink and introduce a special performance from the fantastic figure skating team from Berkshire Ice Rink.

Anthea is not the only celebrity to have joined us on the ice! Santa has kindly made time to visit us every Saturday and Sunday, and last week we found the lovely Will Mellor preparing for a skate.

Windsor On Ice is suitable for all levels of skater and offers entertainment for everyone. Join the under 5s for Tiny Tuesdays or groove along to one of our disco ice skating sessions! Mum and dad can even enjoy a cold beer or a “vin chaud” from the ice bar. Find out more at WindsorOnIce.com.

There’s loads going on at the ice rink from now until 2nd January, and even the chance to win private use of Windsor On Ice on New Year’s Eve – simply tag your photos with #VIPSKATE on social media!

Ice skating tickets are available online or at the ice rink on the day, but you may need to pre-book for the more popular sessions. Buy tickets here.

Special thanks to Colette Langton for all the photographs.
