When the weekend arrives it’s time to get your skates on. Friday night, Saturday night and Saturday afternoons are our disco sessions, where local DJs play top tunes while you skate under the dancing lights! Please note the on ice equipment is not available during disco sessions.
A fantastic session especially for adults, taking place between 10-11.30am on a Tuesday and Thursday when we have two ice pads in operation. This will give over 18’s the chance to have a relaxed skate, sharpen their skills and meet up with friends.
Parent & Toddler Parent and Toddler skating sessions are a great activity to enjoy with your little ones. Children aged between 18 months and five years
