Oli Norman, Elfingrove Creator and CEO of itison, said: “We’ve been blown away with the response to The Ice Experience. From Rockefeller Centre in New York to Ice World in Vienna, I’ve skated some of the world’s most iconic rinks so create our own at Kelvingrove Museum to rival those great cities and see so many of you enjoying magical memories on the ice is a real honour.

Glasgow Times:

“50,000 tickets have already been snapped up and this is our final ticket release, so I’d get your skates on and get in quick!”

There are some tickets still available for pre-Christmas dates and organisers have warned those keen to snap them up for over the holidays to "set an alarm".

Tickets go on sale this Thursday, December 9 at 7.30am at itison.com/elfingrove.
