Sport Aberdeen, the city’s award winning community leisure trust, has launched the countdown to Christmas with the announcement that tickets are now on sale for their 2018 festive showcase.

‘A Magical Christmas on Ice’ will see the Linx Ice Arena transformed into a celebration of Christmas with characters coming together on Saturday 8 December.

The annual Christmas Ice Show will welcome back talented skaters from Sport Aberdeen’s Learn to Skate programme, members of local skating clubs and individual skaters from the National Ice Skating Association (NISA), to pull together a fun filled show packed with everyone’s favourite songs and stories inspired by the festive season.

David Selkirk, Director of Community Leisure Operations at Sport Aberdeen, said:

“Our homegrown cast and their dedicated coaches have been working hard to ensure a fantastic show this Christmas.

“The 2018 Christmas Ice Show is set to be a festive adventure for the whole family to enjoy, bringing together all of our favourite festive characters for ‘A Magical Christmas on Ice’.”

Sport Aberdeen will also be gifting 120 tickets to local children’s homes, looked after children and local schools, to ensure the festive spirit is extended across the city.
