Whether out with a group of friends, on a romantic date, or spending time as a family, the Derby Christmas Ice Rink will be one of the coolest destinations in Derby this Christmas.
A fabulous festive treat! Why not combine a skating session with one of our Christmas shows?
Don’t worry if you're new to the ice, this year we have some skate aids to help keep you on your feet. The Skate aids come in three different varieties, a metal frame skate aid and a penguin skate aid (both for individual use) and the larger ‘banana skate aids’ which the whole family can use.
Additional charges apply for use of the skating aids.
