The Dorset Lettings Group will be the headline sponsor for this year’s Big Christmas event in Weymouth.

Barrie George, Director of Dorset Lettings Group Ltd said “I am very happy to support Weymouth’s BIG Christmas promotion.  The real ice rink is a great attraction for the town, combined with the ‘Shopping by the Sea’ message, people will be encouraged to spend more time in Weymouth during December.  I know my team are really looking forward to the day of entertainment at the launch event and lighting up ceremony on Saturday 3rd December, and, even persuaded me to sponsor the Christmas Tree too!”

There are four Silver Sponsorship opportunities, plus on-line options and advertising panels around the ice rink.  Two of the Silver sponsorship packages are ready to be signed up this week and more details will follow.

Many businesses are supporting the event by taking advertising space around the ice rink, a few spaces are still available and businesses are encouraged to contact the BID office as soon as possible as sponsorship booking closes on 10th November to allow time for business logos to go on all marketing materials.

Nigel Reed, Weymouth BID Manager said “We have taken a lot of time and effort this Christmas to make sure that businesses have the opportunity to be involved.  Sponsorship is an important part to delivering a successful event, but there are also lots of other ways that businesses can still join in by creating competition prizes, using the BID to promote special Christmas offers or even taking space on the website.”

The BIG Christmas Real Ice Rink will be launched on Thursday 1st December 2016, with an opening ceremony by MP Richard Drax for a VIP skating sessions.  Special First Day ‘£5 Friday’ tickets will be available for everyone on Friday 2nd December, after which bookings will be open for all ice rink tickets from £6 for a 45 minute ice skating session, which includes skate hire. Book at November 15th.
