The temporary ice rink in the great hall at St George’s Hall opened this morning and we went along to see the Lord Mayor put his skates on. He moved around so fast all my pictures of him came out blurred. But here’s a couple of nice shots I think.
You pay for a half hour session and as you can see its a small rink and not too packed. Every so often a snow machine makes a small snow storm in one corner of the rink and all the kids dash to get underneath it.
Staff are on hand to help pick up the frequent fallers and first aid boxes are well stocked!
They have also installed a cafe at the end of the hall below the organ where you can warm up with some hot chocolate, a bowl of scouse, mulled wine etc.
A very nice way to spend a bit of time over the holiday.
