Whitby Ice Rink website has announced that it is unable to stage the event and added: “We rely heavily on funding and business sponsorship and due to the cost of living crisis we were facing a reduction in funding making the project too risky, financially.

“We hope to be back in 2024, watch this space.”

The rink ran under cover of a marquee at Endeavour Wharf over the past two winters.
