THE Cinderella on Ice tour has been pushed forward over what organisers described as "uncertainty surrounding the events industry".

The Dancing on Ice style tour is a take on the timeless fairytale of Cinderella, featuring some of the world's most elite entertainers and skilled skaters.

The event was due to take place at Roko Health Club between August 17 and 22 - making York the second stop on its UK tour.

But in an announcement today, organisers said the "only option is to sadly postpone the events".

A spokesperson for Cinderella on Ice said: "Due to the uncertainty surrounding the events industry and coronavirus, in particular the spread of the new Delta Variant.

"It is with heavy hearts that we at Fairytales On Ice have had to come to the difficult decision to postpone this years Cinderella on Ice Tour.

"The welfare of all of our customers is our top priority and we simply cannot take any unnecessary risks where this virus is concerned. Thus in keeping with current government and local authority guidance, our only option is to sadly postpone the events.

"We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we promised to take you and your families on a magical and enchanting journey, and this is something we simply must deliver to its fullest potential. It would mean a great deal to us if you could hold on to your tickets as the magic will return bigger and better than ever! We will take care of everything for you, and you will not need to do anything moving forward."
