We are very pleased to confirm that our major project for this Winter will be installing an ice skating rink in Garema Place. The rink will be open to the public for day and night time skating sessions during the month of July.
The team behind the recent Groovin’ in the City (Tom-Tom Marketing & Events) have engaged Sydney company Stars on Ice to install and manage the rink which will also host a number of special events and performances. Think fashion shows, dancing, ice hockey demonstrations, specialty European food, ice carving, Christmas in July, speed skating, DJ’s, markets, buskers and special school holiday events. There is sure to be something for everyone of all ages from 5 to 95. The program will also feature Monday-Friday 45 minute skate sessions targeted at the City’s office workers who wish to do something different with their lunch hour.
The skating area will be a 15m x 30m structure, open air with a roof covering to allow for lighting. The rink will accommodate 200 skaters per session and there will be an additional sales and skate hire tent, plus tiered seating areas, gas heaters and public toilet facilities. Patrons will be able to purchase Alpine themed specialty food items like poffertjes, hot chocolate, mulled wine and German sausages, and an ice machine will be added to further enhance the atmosphere.
The businessminded amongst you should note they’re also after market stall operators.
