Bournemouth outdoor ice rink opens for Christmas
Bournemouth’s outdoor ice rink opens tomorrow, November 14, the perfect antidote to ‘tetchy Tuesday’ and yet another opportunity to crank up the Christmas spirit. Have you noticed that the festive festivities in Bournemouth this year have had a little extra oomph? Well, we know why.
The festive real ice skating rink in Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens is a very popular attraction at Christmas and will be open from 14th November 2019 until 5th January 2020.
The Bournemouth outdoor ice rink in the Lower Central Gardens (a short stroll from the pier) is the result of a £25,000 investment. This is the latest outlay from the Recession Fund, a scheme from the council to boost business and support residents during difficult financial times.
£125,000 was being invested in support of the Community Finance Initiative to support new business and £20,000 is being invested in the Bournemouth Citizens Advice Bureau. Digital entrepreneurs like ourselves will also be supported, with investments in Bournemouth broadband to the tune of £15k. Faster meme downloads for all – hurrah!
Councillor John Beesley, Leader of Bournemouth Borough Council said: “We are the first town in the UK to benefit from 1GB broadband speed and it’s up to us to maximize this opportunity to help boost the town’s economy.”
The rink is 20 per cent bigger and the rink-side Moguls Bar is bigger than ever with a beautiful new garden area for you to snuggle up under blankets and enjoy mulled wine and hot chocolate. The heated bar features VIP Booths and cosy seating, and has regular live music and entertainment. You could also book The Chalet for a private event for 30-120 guests – perfect for winter weddings!
