Back by popular demand, get your skates on and head down to Derby's own glittering ice rink situated on the 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 cup of 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.
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.
We strongly advise that all skaters taking part in the general skate sessions be over 5 years old however, 4-year-olds can go onto the ice during general skate sessions.
Toddler sessions are strictly for under 5s and their parents or guardians.
Skate aids will be free to borrow and are available on a first come, first served basis. The Ice Rink is accessible for individuals who use a wheelchair.
