The festival, which runs until January 8, 2018, and is on Parkers Piece, is open daily and celebrates all the traditions and entertainment that make this time of year so special for everyone. Visitors can enjoy all the attractions, which include skating in style across a glistening outdoor ice rink, in a relaxed and festive atmosphere. There are also fairground rides and the chance to meet up with friends and family over the festive period; host the office Christmas party with a difference and then have a special souvenir photograph to capture the moment. Families are welcome and can enjoy all the fun of the fair in the special childrens zone together with special Mamas and Papas events, giving younger families the chance to learn new skating skills during the day. To warm up after a night out at the festival, the North Poles cosy Alpine Lodge bar will be serving up a tempting range of drinks from warming Glühwein to chilled beer. A festive selection of authentic pop-up food stalls will also be at the festival, selling tasty treats from crepes to churros and no winter festival is complete without an authentic German swing grill.
