Winter Wonderland returns to Nottingham as The Mellors Group and city council work together to bring Christmas to town

After a two year disruption, Nottingham Winter Wonderland returns to Old Market Square, including a Sky Skate ice path for the first time.

Nottingham’s Christmas market and attractions started this Monday and will be on until New Year’s Eve.

The Mellors Group is working together with Nottingham City Council to deliver the perfect Christmas market to the community.

The market offers 60 stalls from hand-made gifts to food and mulled wine from local and international traders.

Edward Mellors, of the Mellors Group, said: “It’s great to be bringing Winter Wonderland back to Old Market Square for Christmas.

“We’re truly excited that this year, alongside our already popular bars and attractions, we are introducing the Sky Skate ice path that will provide a truly unique ice-skating experience.

“After a tough couple of years for everyone I think Nottingham needs to be both optimistic and ambitious this Christmas.

“It’s time to come together again, to celebrate, and to have fun.”

For the first time this year, Winter Wonderland offers an ice rink with two levels, for those who love heights and to those that do not as much.

To enjoy a drink or two, there's the Sur La Piste or Altitude ski chalet bars.

Prices for Sky Skate will depend on tickets being super off-peak, off-peak or VIP.

Portfolio holder for leisure, culture and planning at Nottingham City Council, Pavlos Kotsonis said: “We are proud to offer residents and visitors this exciting centrepiece for Christmas in Nottingham.

“Winter Wonderland will bring people into the city centre, not only from Nottingham but the wider region. I’m sure the new skating layout will be a hit with visitors.

“We’re pleased that by working with the Mellors Group, we are able to stage this fantastic festive attraction at no cost to local taxpayers.”

The toboggan ride will also have a special spot at Winter Wonderland, as well as smaller rides.

Alex Flint, chief executive of Nottingham Business Improvement District, said: “We’re excited to see the transformation of Nottingham’s Old Market Square’s into Winter Wonderland again this year, and anticipate it being a significant attraction, bringing additional festive shopping and socialising opportunities to the heart of the city.”
