The ice rink at Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena will be reopening for the first time in nearly seven months since the start of lockdown.
But it's taken on a colourful hue after being painted blue to recognise the extraordinary efforts by NHS workers during the coronavirus crisis.
In a UK first, the blue ice will also bear the message 'Thank You NHS #ThankYouSocialCare' inside a giant rainbow heart.
The National Ice Centre on the other side of the building has been open since September 8 but the arena's ice rink will be open to the public for skating from Friday, October 16.
As a special thank you 1,000 free skating tickets are available for NHS and
