Riverside Leisure Centre ice rink: important update

We are disappointed to announce that our ice rink will not be able to open on Monday 3 August as planned, following an announcement by the Government that the next phase of reopenings will not go ahead just yet. 

Find out more, including information about patch memberships and pre-booked sessions, on our ice skating page.
