Coventry’s Cathedral ruins are to be transformed into a winter wonderland for the first time, creating one of the most spectacular festive ice-skating rinks in the UK.
The magical new ice rink will see people in Coventry come together safely and have some winter fun when ‘Coventry Glides’ is launched at the Coventry Cathedral Ruins after the “lock-down” ends from 4th December to 10th January.
The ice-skating rink, which is the first event to be announced as part of Coventry City of Culture Trust’s winter programme for 2020, has been created in partnership with Coventry Business Improvement District (BID), Coventry Cathedral and with support from Coventry City Council
It will be open daily (excluding Christmas Day), with socially-distanced skating sessions held from morning to evening.
A number of Covid safety measures will be put in place to ensure guests can stay safe and still have fun, including timed slots for skaters, reduced skater capacity, mandatory facemasks for all skaters – except for those who are exempt – and cleaning in between skating session.
Tickets go on sale today and are priced from £5. You can purchase tickerts from the Trust’s website.
