The ice rink, sponsored by the Sleeping Beauty pantomime at Norwich Theatre Royal opened in Castle Mall gardens and will stay open until Sunday, January 7.

The rink is open every day apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

Debbie Burrell, organiser of the rink, said: 'The ice rink has been really busy and it's been great. We're happy with how it's going. We're urging people to book tickets online to save disappointment.

'A lot of people have travelled in, only to turn up and be disappointed because they have been turned away.'
