National Ice Centre in Nottingham Gets in The Festive Spirit

Head down to the National Ice Centre in Nottingham this Christmas period form the 2nd December to the 3rd January  for a magical skating experience on the biggest indoor ice rink around! With festive skating sessions every single day, a whole host of special themed events and parties, plus a chance to skate on our Christmas rink and meet some of Santa’s reindeer, the National Ice Centre is the place to be!

This year, Santa’s arranged for several of his reindeer to visit the National Ice Centre between 21-23 December, and anyone that books a festive skate at the National Ice Centre on those dates will get to visit the reindeer for free!

Santa’s reindeer and Christmas elves will be on Bolero Square outside the National Ice Centre and Motorpoint Arena Nottingham from 10am – 4pm on 21, 22 and 23 December. Anyone that books a skate on those dates can visit Santa’s reindeer before or after their skating session. The experience will include the opportunity to pet, feed, and take pictures with the reindeer. Delicious hot drinks and mince pies will also be served out on Bolero Square, and special reindeer merchandise will be available to purchase – it’s the perfect treat for the family before the big day!
