Event details

The perfect place for a spot of wintery fun with friends and family, skating at Life is a must on your winter check list!


Grab your mates and head down to Life where the ice rink is open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. There's no need to book if you're visiting with fewer than 10 people, just turn up and pay on the day.
 
Skating tends to be extremely busy on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and so booking is essential for these dates.
 
Make a day of it by visiting our science centre while you’re here (separate prices apply), experience the 4D Motion Ride*, our amazing planetarium, live theatre shows and a range of exciting hands-on zones. Combo tickets for science centre admission and skating are available from 3 December 2018 - 24 February 2019.
 

Coming in a group of 10 or more? Book in advance to take advantage of our special group packages and rates. Perfect for Christmas parties and children's birthday parties. 

Booking and advance payment essential for groups of 10 or more. To book call (0191) 243 8223.
