Free Synthetic Ice Rink At Martlets Hall Demolition Site 16th-18th December 2022
22nd November 2022 |
The former Martlets Hall site is to play host to a synthetic ice rink in December as part of a program of activities by Mid Sussex District Council to support the town centre during the festive season.
The 13 metre long rink will be in place from Friday 16t h- Sunday 18th December and will be free for all the community. The rink is suitable for all ages and will feature a changing area and spectator seating.
The area will be decorated with Christmas lights and Christmas music will play in the background to create a festive atmosphere.
Ahead of the Ice Rink's arrival, an activity day - to be held under a giant marquee - has been organised for Saturday 3rd December.
From 10am until 12 noon, local firm Scrapless will help everyone get ready for a sustainable Christmas by demonstrating how to make salt dough decorations and The Kiln will be providing craft activities. There will be the chance to exchange old toys and decorations for something different as part of a Swap Shop and little ones can enjoy story time with Burgess Hill Library or songs and rhymes with Music Bus.
In the afternoon from 1.30pm until 3.30pm children will be able to enjoy a round of crazy golf and a puppet show or marvel at the stilt walker and giant bubble maker.
Youngsters that want to try some circus skills themselves can join the creative and trained Circus performers at Poi Passion and learn to juggle, hula-hoop, tightrope walk, and balance on stilts.
Music and DJ lessons will be provided by DJ Neel and Sussex Clubs for Young people will be providing arts and crafts activities.
Benson's Funfair will also be coming to the demolition site from Friday 23rd December 2022 to Saturday 1st January 2023, offering discounted rides in the town centre.
The programme has been put together by Mid Sussex District Council, supported by Burgess Hill Town Council and New River REIT.
