Birmingham's outdoor ice rink is returning to Lightwoods Park today.

'Bearwood on Ice' returns for a second successive year and will also include a number of attractions alongside it:

  • Music
  • A fun fair
  • Giant inflatable slides
  • Bouncy castles
  • Bearwood traders selling seasonal food and drink
  • The Christmas garden where children can post letters to Father Christmas

It's great to see the community and council working together again for another 'Bearwood on Ice'.

Organisers are now starting to set things up ready for Saturday's opening and I'm sure the attraction will be every bit as successful as last year and enjoyed by all.

– Councillor Steve Eling, Sandwell Council's deputy leader
