Join us for some festive fun and take a dash around Derby’s own real ice rink. Proving a popular choice last Christmas, the glittering ice rink will be back in Derby’s Market Place.

Whether you’re the next Torvill and Dean or you’re just trying to stay on your feet, there is no better way to get in the Christmas mood than strutting (skating) your stuff around the ice. Followed by a steamy hot chocolate or warming mulled wine. It’s the perfect Christmas time treat. The covered Ice Rink has a viewing platform and windows. Spectators can join in the fun by relaxing amongst the twinkling lights and listening to the festive playlist.

Adults and children of all abilities can enjoy whizzing around on the ice in our hourly sessions, with prices including skate hire. New for this year sit-on skate aids will be free to borrow for those feeling a bit wobbly on the ice. Available on a first come first served basis.

Smooth Radio Night

Head down to the ice rink for the Smooth Radio Night on Saturday 9th December and enjoy a special party night feel with a Smooth Radio playlist and giveaways, all hosted by Smooth Radio DJ Emma Cauldwell.

Age Guidance

An adult must always accompany and supervise under 12s skaters on the ice. 12- to 14-year-olds must have a parent or guardian observing from the sides.
