Christmas Schools
Ice Skating 

Looking to reward the children for their achievements this year?
Outdoor Schools ice skating is back again in Nottingham’s Market Square this Christmas!


An essential Christmas experience and the ideal treat for your pupils ahead of the festive season.

Imagine how much fun your children can have skating in front of the grand Council House in the heart of Nottingham’s City Centre offering views of the twinkling city lights and Nottingham’s Christmas tree. 

Ice skating is great exercise and Christmas 2023 will be another exciting time to access the Sky Skate ice path that will let festive fun seekers skate for 220m around the square high above the crowds *

Skating is available for schools every day Monday to Friday two sessions a day:-


  • Every morning Monday to Friday: 10.30am - 11.30am **

  • Every afternoon Monday to Friday: 12.30pm - 2.00pm **


School weekday sessions commence on Wednesday 8th November and continue through to Friday 22nd December 2023.

Teachers skate for free when they book as part of a school group (1 free place for every 10 children).  Any additional support staff/volunteers are charged at £5.75.


The Outdoor Ice Rink is situated within Nottingham City Centre and it is accessible via road and the tram. We have excellent relationships with local transport providers and would be delighted to help you organising transport for your trip.  Please let us know.
