Bolton Christmas Festival

Public Skate

Grab your friends and family and join the festive fun on the ice.

With each session lasting one hour – which includes 15 minutes to get on / off the rink and 45 minutes to show us your moves on the ice, these slots offer a perfect, fun activity for everyone.

And with super low prices;

£8 for adults,

£4.50 for children,

£6 for concessions/students

and just £24 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) it’s a bargain too, what’s not to love?

Please note there are limited skating aids available to hire for these sessions (£2 per skate aid), they are offered on a first come, first served basis!  But don’t forget the best way to learn to skate is without a skate aid!

There are also some great special deals on offer for selected sessions so there’s even more savings to be made!

“Have fun on the ice”

The ice rink will be taking centre stage on Victoria Square from 7th December 2019 to 5th January 2020.

All abilities are welcome and there are sessions to suit everyone with the number of skaters on the ice managed to ensure that everyone can enjoy themselves in a safe environment.
For general public skating the ice rink can hold up to 180 people per session but the Penguin Club (parent and child sessions) are limited to 120 people with a maximum of 2 children per adult.  
We also offer special school sessions, where just 40 skaters, plus a maximum of five school teachers, can learn to skate or just enjoy the fun.
