Event details

Fancy a skate on New Year's Eve?


Start your New Year's celebrations early with skate on our open air ice rink. It's a great way to blow away those Christmas cobwebs for a fresh new start!

Visit our Skating page for general information on our outdoor ice rink in the centre of Newcastle.

Terms and conditions
 
  • Sessions last for approximately one hour.
  • Tickets are valid for the time and date only and are non- transferable or refundable. Late comers will not be admitted.
  • Booking/time slot applies to named parties only; if additional friends/family accompanies you on the day, they will have to join the queue. Unfortunately we can’t guarantee there will be space for additional skaters on the day.
  • Sometimes we have to close the rink because of bad weather. If this happens, we will do our very best to reschedule your visit to a date of your choice; sorry but no refunds will be given. 
  • Skates are provided; you are welcome to use your own skates but we can’t offer a discount if you do.
  • Children aged 9 and under must be accompanied by an adult on the ice rink.
  • As little ones aged 4 and under need more supervision, adults should have no more than TWO children of this age with them on the ice.
  • Children aged 12 and under must be supervised by an adult (adults can watch from the viewing platform if they prefer).
  • As space on the viewing platform is limited, it is reserved for parents and guardians supervising their children.
  • Sorry but if you leave the rink and hand in your skates, you will have to buy another ticket to skate again.
  • Management reserves the right to refuse entry.
Your use of and purchase of tickets is governed by the Terms & Conditions as set out on the Life website.
