The event will take place on Thursday 28 June with Torvill and Dean taking to the ice in a one-of-a-kind performance of a choreographed dance with the Olympic flame.
The skating pair, who are currently in Nottingham for the Dancing on Ice Tour said, "We couldn't be happier to be a part of the Olympic Torch Relay celebrations in our home town, we've been developing our choreography for the gala and we're very excited to welcome the Olympic Flame to the National Ice Centre, where it all began for us."
City schools can expect invitations to the event next week before tickets are made available to the public, and seating for the gala is unreserved, however people will need to register for a ticket. Registration will commence on May 18 and the tickets will be distributed on a first come basis.
Further details about the gala and the ticket application process will be released closer to the time at www.National-Ice-Centre.com
