Another Winter Wonderland attraction is to pop up around Newcastle and it's being touted as "the North East's largest free amusement park".

The Winter Wonderland will arrive at the Ocean Beach Pleasure Park in South Shields on Friday, November 26.

The attraction includes a large skating rink with real ice to help locals get into the festive spirit.

Once frozen through after ice skating, visitors can warm up at the festival bar's fire pits with a glass of mulled wine and enjoy a range of festive food from stalls.

Organisers are also pulling together a live music programme and hope that the Winter Wonderland will welcome special guests in the run-up to Christmas.

As well as skating, there will be more than 40 rides in the park, as well as arcade games.

Michael Sheeran, operator at Ocean Beach, said: "We’re really excited to launch our first ever Winter Wonderland here at the park and we’ve got a fantastic programme planned for the holiday season.

“Whether groups are planning a visit with family or friends, our real ice rink is something that all ages can enjoy and there’s festive fun on offer across the whole site so there’s plenty reason to stick around after skating.

“Our tipi is a great spot to stop for a warming tipple with friends and we can’t wait to see what our visitors think of the park’s festive makeover when we launch.”

Entry to the Winter Wonderland is free, with guests just paying for the activities they do.

Booking in advance for the ice rink is recommended, with adults costing £9 and children priced at £7.

Family ticket deals are also available.
