Beamish Museum confirmed on social media on Friday, February 4 that its open air ice rink – which launched at new year and is running until the end of the February half-term holiday – will be closed this weekend (Saturday, February 5 and Sunday, February 6).

This is due to damage caused during last weekend’s extreme weather, as Storm Malik and Storm Corrie battered the region.
