Life’s open air ice rink got a sprinkle of pixie dust when stars from the Peter Pan production at the Tyne Theatre took to the ice.
Peter Pan, played by former Dancing on Ice and Eastenders star Matt Lapinskas, lead the line-up at the Times Square rink, in Newcastle.
He was joined by entertainer Lewis Denny, who plays Mrs Smee in the panto production, actor Micky Cochrane who plays Captain Hook and other members of the star-studded cast.
Life Science Centre’s real ice outdoor rink is an established part of the festive calendar in the city and is open until 7 January, providing skaters of all ages and abilities with the ultimate festive experience.
Matt, who was runner-up in the TV series Dancing on Ice, said he was delighted to dust down his blades and display his skating skills on the ice rink.

“I’m thrilled to be playing Peter Pan at Tyne Theatre and Opera House in Newcastle. While I’m up here, I couldn’t wait to hit the ice at Centre for Life’s outdoor rink. The joy of skating is something I cherish, and it was great to be back on the ice, experiencing the magic of both stage and ice in this incredible city.”
