Ice Rink 2018

29 November 2018 to 6 January 2019

Ready for a real 'ice' time this Christmas?

Then get your skates on and head down to Keel Square and our fabulous ice rink!

Take to the ice from Thursday 29 November as the ice rink officially opens - giving you the chance to show off your best frosty moves and ice slides. And don't worry about keeping the cold at bay, as the adjoining Hadrian's Tipi will be open every day to keep you warm by their log fires.
