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.

Social just got social!!

The National Ice Centre is delighted to announce that customers are now able to book tickets for ice skating sessions and themed parties via the world’s largest social network, Facebook. Following the installation of AudienceView, the in-house ticketing system at Capital FM Arena Nottingham and the National Ice Centre last summer, the venue has taken another step forward to provide customers with an accessible, efficient and far-reaching platform for online ticket purchases and is the first ice rink in the UK to do so.

As well as a ‘buy and reserve’ function, the innovative distribution channel named AudienceView Tiki, will also allow customers the chance to reserve tickets for their friends, invite friends to a skating session and share the experience post-event.

Kate Osborne, Digital Marketing Manager at the National Ice Centre (NIC) said: “The NIC is a very sociable brand, so it’s really exciting to be the first ice rink in the UK to roll-out this functionality. “Offering our social media audiences the opportunity to book tickets to skating sessions, coupled with the fact that they can invite and even reserve tickets for their friends, really does takes social networking and sharing to a new level, and will see our position as a social market leader flourish.”

AudienceView Tiki is part of a trial, and if it proves successful, Capital FM Arena Nottingham may look to sell tickets via Facebook for music events in the future, allowing customers to purchase tickets and reserve seats for their friends without ever leaving Facebook and providing the East Midlands’ biggest music venue with a powerful functionality that is unique within the marketplace.

Please visit our Facebook Page to book your tickets.
