Skate Tunbridge Wells part of Christmas in Calverley Gardens in 2021

We may have just had one of the hottest days of the year, but tickets have gone on sale today for ice skating this Christmas in the county.

The ice rink at Calverley Gardens in Tunbridge Wells is set to return for the 11th year, as part of festive events in the town.

Last year the rink did open, but was forced to close when the county entered tier 4 in coronavirus restrictions shortly before Christmas.

The outdoor rink will be open seven days a week (apart from Christmas Day) once it launches on Friday, November 19, running through to Monday, January 3, 2022.

There will be two rinks, with the second, smaller one dedicated to parents and toddlers during the day, and to Bavarian curling in the evenings.

Visitors can also enjoy a drink from the Polar Bar, and local coffee shop Fine Grind will be in residence for the first time.

There will also be other stalls selling seasonal and warming refreshments.
