The pop-up ice rink, which opened on December 4, is open to groups of up to six at the Firstsite site in Lewis Gardens.

Each session lasts for 45 minutes, priced at £6 for children and £12 for adults.

To celebrate the opening, Colchester MP Will Quince joined Firstsite director Sally Shaw MBE and Firstsite chair of trustees, Rosie Millard OBE, to take the first spin on the ice.

Mr Quince said an afternoon’s skating was “fantastic festive fun”.
