SILVER Blades Ice Rink, in Altrincham, welcomed 980 students from local schools to watch its annual Christmas show.

This was the first year that the ice rink solely had a performance for local schools to watch.

The ‘Dancing though the Decades’ ice show was voted huge a success.

Silver Blades Ice Rink is open every day of the year.

Skating is free on Christmas Day and this year, the rink hope that donations will raise money for The Christie Charity.
