ON your marks, get ready ... skate!
The popular Ice Cube attraction is heading back to Millennium Square in Leeds, council bosses confirmed today.
Its outdoor skating rink will be in place from next Friday, January 24, through to Sunday, February 23.
An adjoining nursery rink will also be available for younger children along with a whole host of other rides and fun activities.
Top draws this year are expected to include the Capital FM Snowslide and a giant inflatable obstacle course.
Leeds City Council’s executive member for leisure, Coun Lucinda Yeadon, said: “It is fantastic to welcome back the Ice Cube to Millennium Square, which is always a great way to have fun and wash away any January blues.
“As usual there will be the ice rink to enjoy, and this year I am delighted to say that also available will be a wide range of great rides and attractions.
“With ice skating lessons also on offer, this year’s Ice Cube really does promise to be something not to be missed.”
Taking place for the 14th time, the Ice Cube is being organised by the council with support from the Yorkshire Evening Post and Capital FM.
It will be open from noon to 8.30pm Monday to Friday, 10am to 8.30pm Saturdays and 10am to 7pm Sundays.
