Ice skaters are in for a treat when the Ice Cube returns to Millennium Square in the New Year.

Now in its 16th year, the popular attraction will include a real outdoor ice rink and adjoining nursery rink surrounded by family rides and the Dolomites Café.



Organised by Leeds City Council with support from Capital FM the Ice Cube will be open from Friday, January 22 until Sunday, February 21, 2016.

Councillor Judith Blake, Leeds City Council Leader, said: “Ice Cube is one of our most popular events and a chance to try something unique and different right at the heart of the city centre.

“It’s always great to see people enjoying themselves out on the square and we’re very fortunate to have a space where we can host such a varied programme of innovative and exciting events.”

As well as ice skating for the general public, a four-week National Ice Skating Association (NISA) tuition programme for skating enthusiasts of all levels will be held on a Saturday and Sunday morning by Skate UK qualified skating professionals.

A limited number of weekend individual lessons will also be available to book on a first come, first served basis.

A ‘first steps to skating’ tuition programme for Leeds schools’ children will be available during term time for schools to book and a weekly dedicated accessible session every Thursday morning between 9.15am and 10.15am will be held for wheelchair users and disabled people.

Places for the NISA tuition programme can be booked by calling the City Centre Box Office in the Carriageworks Theatre on 0113 224 3801. Tickets for all public ice skating sessions can be booked in advance either online at www.leeds.gov.uk/icecube or by calling the booking line on 0843 208 1841.
