The Face of Somerset Skates into Christmas at Magical Hestercombe!
Friday 30th November, 4.30pm – Hestercombe’s Official Skating rink Launch!
Do join us for the exclusive opening of Hestercombe’s Skating Rink with ribbon cutting on skates performed by the new Face of Somerset, Megan Bessell.
Press are invited to preview the super silky all-weather artificial ice-rink for themselves! The rink, opens to the public on Saturday 1st December. Last year’s skating at Hestercombe proved so popular it is back again this year.
Accompanying Megan on the ice will be children from King’s Hall school and some of Wellington School’s Chapel Choir, festively dressed for the occasion. Heavenly angels may materialise alongside Father Christmas and his elves.
The ice-rink will be open for public skating every weekend in December as well as every day between 17th December and 6th January. (Please book skating session in advance). Set inside a magical marquee with traditional festive fare and mystic Christmas creatures, the whole family can enjoy the festive fun indoors whilst leaving the cold winter weather outside.
Why not book in for a party? The food at Hestercombe is tantalisingly top-notch and the Hestercombe chef’s have prepared a taste-tingling Christmas menu available throughout December.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday 30th November at 4.30pm!
