If you’ve come to skate over the past few weeks you will have noticed that the Public Skating Rink has been closed for ice maintenance, and building works have been taking place.
We’re excited to announce that the Public Skating Rink will be back in action tonight for the 7:30pm Disco Public Skating session! Come on down and skate on brand new fresh ice!
The National Ice Centre would like to thank you for bearing with us during the building works and ice maintenance.
The Public Skating Rink has been closed for the past two weeks for ice maintenance. The team removed the ice and carried out essential work on the pipes under the rink and new ice was installed and painted. Check out all the photos here.
The building works at the National Ice Centre’s Public Skating (Olympic) Rink will finish next week, thanks so much for bearing with us!
