Winter Wonderland prepares to open
Get your skates on this Christmas and glide, pirouette and whirl across Chorley’s real ice rink as it opens this weekend – Saturday 8 December. The attraction is back by popular demand along with the Christmas tipis where people can enjoy some festive drinks as part of Chorley’s fantastically festive winter wonderland on Cleveland Street car park. The wonderland, which is being hosted by Chorley Council, is part of the town’s festive celebrations.
Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, said: “The winter wonderland was really popular when we hosted it two years ago and now we’ve got the event space in the town centre it was the ideal opportunity to bring it back.
“The winter wonderland has something for people of all ages with a real ice rink, children’s rides and fun house, food outlets, festive stalls and the tipis where people can get a drink.
“It’s just one of many things we’ve got going on to give people an enjoyable experience and at the same time they can do some of their Christmas shopping whether on the markets, in Market Walk or at one of the many independent stores.”
Chorley’s Winter Wonderland will be open every day from Saturday 8 December until Sunday 6 January 2019, except Christmas Day. Betty’s Tipis will be open later on some evenings.
