Here’s some really cool news for winter sports lovers in Leeds – the city’s ever-popular Ice Cube skating attraction is coming back to the city in 2015.

The outdoor rink will be open for business as usual in Millennium Square from Friday, January 23, until Sunday, February 22, it was confirmed today.

General skating sessions will be available as well as tuition programmes run by qualified professionals.

And, as is now traditional, the Ice Cube will be offering much more than simply a ticket to glide.

Other winter-themed reasons to make a visit to the attraction will include a towering funfair-style ride called the North Pole Starflyer and an inflatable snowball obstacle course.

The Ice Cube is organised by Leeds City Council, with the Yorkshire Evening Post and Capital FM acting as media partners.

Coun Lucinda Yeadon, the council’s executive member for digital and creative technologies, culture and skills, said: “It is always fantastic to welcome back the tremendously popular Ice Cube to Millennium Square and our 2015 event really promises to be one of the best yet.

“The Ice Cube is the perfect destination for people of all ages and abilities to have great fun on the ice, and if you do want to brush up or learn new skills, don’t miss out on the chance to be coached by the experts in our ice skating tuition programme.”

General skating sessions cost £8 for adults and £6 for children aged 12 or under, with discounts available for LEEDSCard or BreezeCard holders.

The four-week National Ice Skating Association tuition programme is priced at £68 per person and places on the course can be booked now by calling 0113 224 3801.
