Eastbourne’s festive ice rink will be located outside the Enterprise Shopping Centre.

The rink, which will feature Christmas illuminations and an interactive Xmas tree for people to post their own messages, will open from December 1 until January 5 – and tickets will be on sale from October 8.

Lightning Fibre is the Headline Sponsor of the Eastbourne Ice Rink.

Ben Ferriman, CEO and founder of Lightning Fibre, said, “The announcement by Your Eastbourne BID that they were bringing an Ice Rink to Eastbourne this Christmas was amazing news.

“We immediately offered to headline sponsor this great event, which will bring a lot of enjoyment to families here and from out of town.

“As Eastbourne’s new, full fibre network operator it made a lot of sense for us to support this local initiative, both financially and by providing our full fibre broadband free of charge at the event for the public to use.”
