Tickets for Ice Skating in UK 

In the UK, the 2006 summer was late in coming and winter has also been delayed, but as the end of the year approaches, seasonal holiday activities are coming into their own. Ice skating is an increasingly popular activity and temporary ice skating rinks are now open throughout the UK.
Ticketmaster have a list of ice skating rinks where you can buy tickets in advance.
