Christmas at Riverside

Christmas at Riverside

About this Event

This December, get into the festive spirit and come and ice skate in our magical Christmas winter wonderland at Riverside ice rink.

Skate in the snow in our beautifully decorated rink, soak up the festive atmosphere and sing along to your favourite Christmas songs. Then warm up afterwards by enjoying some festive treats at our mezzanine café.

You might even be able to catch a glimpse of a special guest visiting from the South Pole; our mascot Pops the penguin!

You can enjoy skating in our winter wonderland from 4 December right the way through to New Years Eve.
Penguin aids will be available for hire for children to enjoy safe, fun skating.
