Christmas Lights Switch On

Take to the ice in Bedlington Market Place.


No we aren’t privy to a long range weather forecast! Get your skates on and come and enjoy our synthetic ice rink in Bedlington Market Place this festive season.

The synthetic Ice Rink along with the community Christmas tree will form the back drop to this year’s Community Carol singing and Christmas lights switch on.


The “Switch On” event will take place on Saturday 30th November 2019. We expect to switch on the Christmas lights at 4pm. The Salvation Army Band will open the event at 2pm ahead of Community Carol singing lead by our local schools at around 3pm – come along and add your voice to the festive celebration. A Christmas Fair with lots of Christmas related goods will be located inside Bedlington Community Centre (Stalls will be open from 10am onwards).

Use of the Ice Rink will be by advance booking only. Skating will be available for 7 hours each day of the weekend (Saturday 1pm to 8pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm). Skates will be available for hire. Booking details will be advertised on both The Councils website and Facebook page in due course.

Session numbers are restricted for safety reasons and will be a small nominal fee and you must book your session in advance.

Details of how, where and when  to book your skating will be announced closer to the date of the event.

Please check back regularly for updates.


West Bedlington Town Council wishes all of its residents a very happy Christmas and a wonderful 2020.
