Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival’s Branches Out with an enchanted forest theme

The Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival has returned for 2017 with a cool Ice Bar and Enchanted Forest theme.

Ideal for some festive family fun, guests can enter the Ice Bar to feel the freeze and enjoy a complimentary shot (there’s a children’s option available too!) before wandering around the bar that is packed with enchanting ice sculptures which took up to 200 hours to carve in total.

Visit the Tree of Truth that is inspired by Rome’s Mouth of Truth – a marble mask with a face and open mouth on, which according to legend, closes when a liar puts its hand in it.

The Tree of Truth is just one of many intrinsically created sculptures that make up the ten tonnes of ice that sit within the Ice Bar, situated on the Pier Head.

Other creations include a replica of the throne from hit movie The Huntsman: Winter’s War, that guests can sit on and take a selfie.

The Ice Bar, which is packed with ice made from over 40,000 mugs of water, also serves favourite alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
