On the Ice Rink

Every winter after New Year, the Millenium Square in Leeds is transformed into a large open ice rink, allowing people to skate outdoors. This year, the weather had been quite mild and rainy, until a few days ago. Now temperatures are at -3 C during the night, and barely above zero during the day - the right weather for some time on the ice.

Tonight, between 18:00 and 20:00, Leeds Met had rented the whole rink for a student party, to celebrate the launch of the Student Wiki. Video was shown on the BBC big screen above the rink, our Vice Chancellor gave a short speech, and then students could do their circles on the ice.
