Bognor Regis unveiled its first ever festive rink on Place St Maur between Belmont Street and The Esplanade, on 23rd November. The real ice rink is open seven days a week, from 11am until 9pm Monday to Friday during term time, and 10am to 9pm at weekends and from 15 December – 7th January.

Bognor Regis Town Centre Manager Toyubur Rahman, said: “This is a brilliant attraction for the town in the winter months, which are traditionally quieter, compared to the summer months. We are confident that this event will attract visitors from near and far and give them a great experience.”

The Bognor Regis ice rink is a partnership between Bognor Regis Town Centre Management, First Point Event Management and Arun District Council.

As well as the ice rink, there’s wooden hut stalls offering seasonal food and drink and Christmas gifts, as well as fun children’s rides and a life-size snow globe!

Worthing’s ice rink opened on 20th October in Steyne Gardens and will be open for festive fun, between 10am -9pm each day, until 28th January.

The fully covered rink allows skating to take place whatever the weather, and with its rink-side café, skaters and spectators can eat and be merry in the warmth of the ice rink’s marquee.
