The Nottingham Lions were on hand earlier this month to welcome X-Factor and Dancing on Ice star Chico to the National Ice Centre as he opened the Christmas-themed ice skating rink at the popular city centre venue.


(L-R) Danny Harrison, Nic Williams, Mikey Rose, Luke Branin, Luke Thomas, Chico, Joe Wightman & Gareth O’Flaherty.

The singer, best known for his number one hit single ‘It’s Chico Time’ posed for photos and skated with fans during his visit to lace city and also found time for a chat and a photo session with some of the Lions boys who had come down to support their sponsors’ big event.

Open until the 6th January, the Christmas ‘Winter Wonderland’ themed rink includes a huge six metre tall Christmas tree and thousands of twinkling lights.

Further details about prices, times and tickets can be found on the National Ice Centre website or by telephoning the box office on 0843 373 3000.
