Last chance to get your skates on in Leicester

Published on Thursday, January 4, 2018

LEICESTER’S Christmas ice rink will close at 8pm on Monday (8 January) – which means that time is running out for anyone who still wants to have a spin on the ice.


The real ice rink has proved popular with both local people and visitors, with around 22,000 tickets snapped up since the attraction in Jubilee Square opened to the public on 9 December.


Tickets for the timed sessions can be bought in person at the Visit Leicester store on Gallowtree Gate, online at, and from the ice rink box office at BBC Radio Leicester, just next to the ice rink.


Skate hire and a 45-minute session on the ice cost £8 for adults and £6.50 for children/concessions at off-peak times (11am-4pm Monday to Friday). Tickets for sessions at all other times cost £9 for adults and £7.50 for children/concessions.


Groups of four or more people will save 10% on standard prices, with a 15% discount available to groups of 11 or more people and 20% off for groups of 30 or more.
