At the centrepiece of this annual extravaganza is the real ice rink outside Debenhams on New Bond Street - get your skates on from 1 December until New Year’s Day. Ticket price of £7.50 is for a 45-minute session and includes skate hire. Discounts available when booked online or for groups of four or more, just go to weareweymouth.co.uk/christmas, where you will also find details about Santa who is going to be in his Grotto in the foyer of Cineworld from 1 December.
In 2016, Weymouth BID won £10,000 worth of Christmas Lights, beating 12 other coastal towns including Bognor Regis, Eastleigh and Ilfracombe, in the Blachere Christmas Light Competition. These fabulous lights are on display again this year, ensuring that this coastal town is going to have some of the best illuminations in Dorset!
