The ice rink at Riverside Leisure Centre is currently under refurbishment as part of the redevelopment project and will reopen in June 2019. Find out about the redevelopment. 

When the ice rink reopens in June, we will have public skate sessions, family skate, and weekend discos, along with a host of activities for kids, including ice skating parties, holiday courses and our term time Get In! Skate School

We will also offer Patch time for those who are NISA grade 8 or above, or are having private skating lessons. 

Whether you will attempt your first skate, or you’re on route to the next series of Dancing on Ice, our fantastic rink facilities will have something for everyone.
