The Ice Cube, the city’s coolest attraction, will return to Millennium Square in February 2018, once again providing the opportunity for visitors of all ages and abilities to try their hand at ice skating under the specially covered outdoor rink.
Organised by Leeds City Council with support from new event media partners Radio Aire, who will be providing the official soundtrack to this year’s event courtesy of Ice Cube Radio together with weekly special events, presenter appearances and on-air competitions, Ice Cube is now in its 18th year and will be open daily from Friday 2 February until Sunday 25 February 2018.
As well as general public ice skating there will also be an opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to sharpen their skills under the watchful gaze of expert coaches. A four-week Skate UK tuition programme for skating enthusiasts of all levels will be held on a Saturday morning by qualified skating professionals. Priced at £72 (including booking fees) per person and ideal as a last minute Christmas gift, places are now available to book by calling the City Centre Box Office on 0113 376 0318 or online at www.millsqleeds.com. A limited number of individual lessons on a Saturday morning will also be available to book on a first come first served basis.
The Ice Cube will also be hosting a wide range of winter themed family rides and attractions including the new Radio Aire Snowslide, the North Pole Starflyer, the adrenalin fuelled Ice Jet plus a selection of other family rides for children of all ages.
A special ‘first steps to skating’ tuition programme for Leeds schools children will once again be available during term time for schools to book and a weekly dedicated accessible session is also available every Thursday morning for wheelchair users and the disabled.
Admission tickets for all public ice skating sessions will go on sale early in the new year. For full skating details including session times together with further information for all other attractions can be found at www.leeds.gov.uk/icecube
