After overwhelming requests in 2016, we brought the ice rink back to Town Hall Gardens for December 2017!
The rink was far bigger than previous years and proved extremely popular with families. Open seven days a week and into the evening – the rink was well used, with people coming into the town centre because of it and travelling from surrounding areas to visit it.
The rink was delivered with support from Smooth Radio who provided over two weeks of prime time radio advertising for the rink and added presenter talk ups. The Ice Rink and Southport at Christmas received homepage coverage and it’s own event listing on Smooth Radio North West.
Peak times saw over 500 skaters a day and plenty of return visitors and over 500,000 impressions were seen on Facebook alone through paid advertising and organic posts and the rink was advertised in several print publications including local papers and primary school magazines.
