Skate down to city event.
An ice rink will be open to the public in Millennium Place on Saturday, February 23 and Sunday, February 24.
The weekend is being organised by Durham City Vision and coincides with the launch of 'Outdoor and Active' a campaign by the County Durham Tourism Partnership promoting the variety of outdoor pastimes and pursuits available across Durham and the Tees Valley.
The rink is 130 sqm and the skating surface is synthetic.
It is being supplied by Bold as part of the company's own bid to encourage active lifestyles and for families to spend quality time together.
It will be visiting 50 different towns and cities in the UK this year.
Kate James, events coordinator for Durham City Vision, said: "This is a really fun way to spend a few hours, get some exercise in a fabulous setting and what's more it is totally free."
Melanie Sensicle, chief executive of the County Durham Tourism Partnership, said: "The ice rink arrives in the city in a very timely manner as we launch our campaign."
