CHRISTMAS will arrive in Bolton in just a few days, as work nears completion on the town centre ice rink.
The skating rink and giant snow slide are the main attractions at the town’s winter festival, which is due to start on Saturday and will also include a Santa’s grotto in Oxford Street.
The ice rink will open daily from 9am to 8.30pm. Opening times on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Eve will be 9am to 5pm.
The attractions are closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, and hours may vary dependent on weather, school trips, and special late night offers.
The slide will open daily from 10am and until 5pm on Sundays, until 7pm Monday to Wednesday, and 8pm Thursday to Saturday.
From December 9 to 20, a festive Christmas Market will open in and around Victoria Square and an Alpine Ski Lodge bar will also be located in Newport Street.
