VISITORS to Merry Hill can enjoy a roller boogie this half term as the shopping centre’s event space is transformed into a disco-themed roller-skating rink.

Retro Roll complete with glittering mirror balls and a DJ will run from Saturday February 10 to Sunday February 18.

The retro disco-themed event, in the event space on the Lowe Mall, by M&S and Mango, is free for visitors to attend but advance booking is recommended and the only way to guarantee a skate.

Forty-five-minute sessions will run from 11am to 5pm throughout the event.

There will also be sensory-friendly, relaxed sessions running on February 11, 14, and 18 at 11am with quieter music and dimmed lighting for a more chilled-out skate.

There will also be a spacious seating area around the rink for skaters to take a break and enjoy the disco vibes.

Skates, pads, and helmets will be available at the rink.

Jonathan Poole, centre manager at Merry Hill, said: “We’re very excited to host Retro Roll and give families a new activity to try together over the school holidays. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the disco!”

Limited walk-up spaces are available for all sessions, on a first come first served basis, and numbers will be limited to 30 skaters per session.

To guarantee entry, visitors are encouraged to pre-book online via the Merry Hill website.
