Christmas Ice Skating and 'Laps to Lapland' Challenge at the National Ice Centre


Surrounded by twinkling lights, a majestic tree, a life size snow globe to have your photo taken inside and various festive events for the whole family - the National Ice Centre is the best place in Nottingham to get into the Christmas spirit this year.

Skaters also have the opportunity to join in the National Ice Centre's 'Laps to Lapland' challenge! The challenge will open on Sunday 1 December and skaters are invited to circle the perimeter of the ice in an attempt to contribute to the 30,255 laps needed to reach Lapland! The laps equal the 2,015 miles distance between Nottingham and the 'official home' of Santa, Roveniemi in Lapland. The National Ice Centre is challenging public skaters to help them reach Lapland before Christmas Day. Daily progress will be logged and available for everyone to track on the National Ice Centre website.

There are also some great deals up for grabs including free skating for children under five when accompanied by a full paying adult, special packages for schools and 40% discount for students and groups of 10+ skaters.

To compliment the festive skating and events, Christmas themed food and drink will be available throughout December in the Sub Zero café. Enjoy a treat before, during or after skating. The dedicated Tots Zone will also be in the centre of the ice during many of the skating sessions this Christmas. The Tots Zone is an area dedicated to under 5s and their parents enabling families to grow in confidence on the ice together. Ice equipment is free to use inside the Tots Zone

Adults (16+) £8.50
Juniors (5-15) £7.50
