NEWS: Liverpool ONE’s Ice Festival returns to Chavasse Park

Children can explore a winter wonderland of frozen fun at Liverpool ONE’s Ice Festival this Christmas. Liverpool ONE’s fun family festivities officially start on Thursday 7 November and on 8th November ‘Dancing on Ice’ stars Samia and Slyvian will take to the ice rink at the festival in Chavasse Park.

A glowing parade of light through the streets of Liverpool ONE and beyond will take place on Friday 8 November, when the city unites for the official start of Christmas in Liverpool with a spectacular Lantern Parade.

Liverpool ONE will come to life with performances from school choirs, musicians such as X Factor’s Harriet Jane, and the talented Ray Quinn will be skating on the open-air ice rink. At the Ice Festival there will be live ice carvings and incredible skating performances from the Birmingham Ice Freestylers.

The event will also see thousands gather to celebrate the official light switch-on in the City and watch their favourite pantomime stars from around the region cast their magical festive spells from the rooftops of Paradise Street.

Santa will arrive in style to Liverpool ONE on Sunday 24 November, marking the launch of Santa’s Grotto which will welcome thousands of children from the region to make their special wish to the man himself.

Crafts, children’s rides and even a 7D cinema, complete with reactive lighting, snow, wind and seat motion, is sure to be a hit with the whole family.

The cool and contemporary pop up Ice Bar features a stunning room and furniture made entirely of crystal clear sculptured ice and will open to the public on Thursday 7 November. Access to the Ice Bar is ticketed in half hour slots and booking in advance is highly recommended.

Après, the alpine themed Café Bar, will provide the perfect stop off point for shoppers to grab a winter warmer or a tasty snack and there will be hot drinks for all the family to enjoy. You can take a break from ice skating in true style at the Après Bar from Thursday 7 November.

Donna Howitt, Marketing Director for Liverpool ONE, said: “We are all so excited to get our festive activities underway and we look forward to welcoming families to enjoy all of the elements of the Ice Festival throughout the Christmas period.”
