OUTRAGED parents have slammed Disney on Ice's new UK tour for failing to include Scotland.

The hit show, which is hugely popular with Glasgow families, tends to visit the city each year having played at both The Hydro and Braehead Arena.

It was due to arrive in Glasgow last year before the tour was forced to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, this year there will be only five cities playing host to the beloved characters - Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, and London - leaving Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland with none.

Angry parents, many of whom had hoped to rebook tickets after missing out on last year's performance, demanded answers on why Glasgow wasn't included.

Writing on social media, one wrote: "No Glasgow = no happy."

Another added: "Why has Glasgow been skipped? Will dates be added?"

While another said: "My girls love Disney on Ice we have been going for six years, however, I can't see any Scottish showings."

"Come back to Glasgow. I've been for the past six years," said one man.

Another woman added: "Why has Scotland been left out entirely? Hardly a UK tour."

Disney on Ice UK has not responded to requests for comment, however, hopes Scottish dates would be added were dashed when the official social media channels confirmed there were no plans to bring the show to Glasgow.

Replying to a customer on Facebook when asked if Scottish dates would be added, the official Disney on Ice UK page said: "The dates announced are for the confirmed Autumn tour schedule.

"We will let all our fans know as soon as we can if we are able to announce any further venues/dates."

Speaking to a second customer, it added: "Unfortunately, we're unable to take all our shows to every venue we'd like to.

"We're sorry if this causes any disappointment."

The official Facebook page did offer a glimmer of hope for Northern Irish customers as it stated Disney on Ice Ireland could add dates in the country.
