Shoppers in Douglas town centre will be able to witness an ice sculpture taking shape on Saturday, December 20.

The event will be held in Regent Street, where award-winning artists Darren Jackson and Stephanie Quayle will create a Christmas carving.

The husband and wife team, acclaimed worldwide for their ice art, will begin the project at around 10.30am, with the carving being fully unveiled later in the day. There’ll also be a host of other attractions and competitions in and around Regent Street, as well as a craft fair running the length of Castle Street and Marina Road.

Town centre manager Michelle O’Malley said: ‘Darren and Stephanie’s ice carvings never fail to draw the crowds and bring something truly fantastical to the town on a day when the streets are always bustling.

‘For the third year in succession Sure has very kindly agreed to sponsor the ice sculpture, so we’re extremely grateful to them for once again adding to the special festive atmosphere in Douglas this Christmas.’
