Scarborough Set To Get Its Own Festive Ice Rink For The First Time Ever This Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Because Scarborough’s brand new (and first-ever) ice rink is about to open, and we can’t wait to give it a go. It opens this Friday and Elsa, Anna and Olaf from Disney’s Frozen will be there to get the festivities going.

Giving the seaside town of Scarborough some extra festive cheer is the new rink, which will be in the town centre as part of the town’s Christmas ‘sparkle’ programme of seasonal events taking place across the borough.

Whether you are a newbie or skilled on the ice, there will be something for everyone at Scarborough’s Winter Wonderland. Children will be able to book and use ‘penguin skate aids’ to help them on the ice. There will be a chilled out Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday when the music will be gentler and quieter and the lights will be turned off from, Tuesdays at 11am and Thursdays at 2pm.

Councillor Jim Grieve, who is a part of Scarborough Borough Council cabinet member for the quality of life, said: “I’m really excited that Scarborough is getting its own ice rink this year.

“I have no doubt it will be a popular attraction for residents and visitors who will be able to get their skates on and have fun on the ice, right in the town centre.”

Scarborough Town Team made the rink possible, and the chairman Richard Grunwell said: “We’ve wanted to attract an ice rink in the town centre for Christmas for some time. It is fantastic that this year we will see this actually happen.

“The town team has been working alongside the council to develop a programme of events and activity to encourage residents and visitors into the town centre to enjoy our hospitality and retail offer.”

The rink will be open from the beginning of December through to January 2nd. It will be open from Monday to Saturday from 11am to 8pm and 10am to 7pm on Sundays. Experiences cost £10 for adults and £8 for children and last 50 minutes with discounts for groups, families and residents.
