National Ice Centre

National Ice Centre

Opened in 2000 by Olympic Champion Jayne Torvill, the £43 million National Ice Centre was the first twin Olympic-sized (60m x 30m) ice rink facility in the UK.

The National Ice Centre is also the home of Capital FM Arena Nottingham – East Midlands hottest concert venue hosting the very best live music & sporting events to audiences up to 10,000.

Session Information

Ice skating is a cool experience whatever your age or ability and where better to give it a go than at the National Ice Centre – the UK’s centre for excellence for ice sports. There are a range of ice skating sessions on offer to suit all ages and abilities.


Parent and Toddler Sessions

Children aged between 18 months and five years can take part, with sessions aimed at building confidence and co-ordination whilst having fun with toys on the ice. These run on Mondays and Wednesdays 1.15 – 1.45pm and Sundays 10 – 10.45, with access to the remaining public session. We recommend that you arrive 20mins prior to the session you are attending.

Club Night
Friday night is our Club Night – tasty beats, resident and guest DJs, neon lights and strobes

R&B Night
If you love your R&B vibes then the National Ice Centre is the place to be on a Wednesday night.

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 (see ice schedule for information). This will give over 18’s the chance to have a relaxed skate, sharpen their skills and meet up with friends.

Please take a look at our timetable for further information about session times. Please note extra sessions are put on during school holidays please visit for more details.
