Jubilee Square Ice Rink


Jubilee Square Ice Rink

Due to popular demand the real ice rink will be back in Jubilee Square!

The rink will have a clear roof so skaters can show off their best moves come rain or shine, plus a new feature this year is an outdoor ice trail. The Jubilee Square experience is crowned by the magnificent Wheel of Light soaring above the skaters giving people the best view of the city's lights.

No need to worry about the weather – come rain or shine you can glide happily under a clear roof, looking up at the Christmas Wheel of Light.

Feeling a bit wobbly? Skating aids are available for younger skaters to hire, making the ice rink great fun and safe for all the family. A limited number of skate aids will be available to hire either online or in person at the skate collection point with cash only. There will be a number of special themed sessions, including the Filbert Fox on Ice!

Bring your friends, your family, neighbours – the more the merrier, especially as groups of four or more people will receive a discounted price. The rink is also available to hire for Christmas parties and private events and is the perfect way to burn off those extra Christmas Calories! 

Advance tickets will be available from mid-October and can be purchased online, as well as in-person at the Visit Leicester Information Centre. Walk up tickets will be available for purchase either by cash or card payment from the Box Office located at BBC Radio Leicester in Jubilee Square. Ticket Terms & Conditions.

For more information, take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions.

Skate hire and a 45-minute session on the ice will cost £9 for adults and £7.50 for children/concessions at off-peak times. Tickets for all other times will cost £10 for adults and £8.50 for children/concessions.

Special Preview Offer only £5!
On Thursday 5 December 5pm – 8pm and Friday 6 December 11am – 8pm we are offering skaters the chance to skate for just £5 per session.
