Sat 2 - Sun 24 Dec Winter Wonderland


Last year, Riverside Ice & Leisure Centre held its very first Winter Wonderland. If you’re looking for somewhere magical to soak up the festive atmosphere, you’ll be delighted to hear that it’s back for 2017!

Riverside Winter Wonderland returns to delight families every weekend throughout December, up to and including Christmas Eve.

The sparkling ice rink will be decked in festive cheer and young visitors will have the very special chance to meet Father Christmas in his grotto. A VIP from the South Pole is coming too: keep a look out for Pops the Penguin, who will be perfectly at home with guaranteed snow every half hour.

Skate amongst the beautiful decorations, sing along to Christmas carols and enjoy a great time out with friends and family.

Take advantage of our free skate hire and refuel with festive food and drink. Worried about the little ones falling over on the ice? Penguin skating aids will be available to hire for safe, fun skating.

Visit to find out more. You can also email us at or call 01245 615050.
