Get your skates on!

Aylesbury’s only ice rink opens at Chiltern View Nurseries from 25 November.

And the seasonal itinerary shows that there is a lot more than just skating at Wendover Road, Stoke Mandeville.

Friday night is party night there and from 6pm every week people can take to the ice accompanied by sets from the resident DJ and guest slots from Dancing on Ice star Matt Evers (who will also wow the crowds with live performances on the ice) and Aylesbury DJ, Dan Blaze.

Saturday nights from 6pm will see live entertainment, including performances from Gareth Gates (27 November); acoustic greats from the 80s to today from Glen Tortolano (4 December); the all-singing all-dancing world class ABBA Tribute band, the Abba Sisters (11 December); and a whole host of Dolly anthems from the ‘world best’ Dolly Parton tribute Kelly O’Brien (pictured) in The Dolly Show (18 December). Presley fans can also catch Alvin – The Ultimate Elvis tribute (Sunday 5 December).

Families can also meet Santa, who will be there on Christmas Eve from 1pm and the Grinch, who will be visiting on Sundays between 11am and 1pm.

The rink will be open seven days a week apart from Christmas Day and people can enjoy skating on the real ice rink in a frozen wonderland. 

They can top off their visit with a trip around the nursery for festive gifts or enjoy some mulled wine or hot chocolate with Christmas snacks.
