Last winter’s popular Skate Manchester ice rink attraction sadly had to be postponed due to Tier 3 restrictions.
But this winter, a flurry of frozen fun is coming to Cathedral Gardens once again with the return of Skate Manchester next month.
Skate Manchester, located at Cathedral Gardens, will offer an enchanting atmosphere for couples, families and groups looking for festive fun whilst protecting visitors from all the elements with a spectacular covered ice-rink.
Committed to an industry Gold Standard of care for visitors, this year’s venue will be nearly double the size of previous years with a reduced daily capacity, meaning more space for skating, more fun and even more memories to be made.
Skate Manchester marks the second round of celebrations at Cathedral Gardens after hosting Scare Skate from 22nd October to 31st October, with ghosts and ghouls taking over the Spooktacular rink in celebration of Halloween.
“We’ve gone all out to ensure Skate Manchester is a celebration of winter 2021 to remember,” says Rob Derry, ice director at Arena, the international event business which coordinates the event.
“After last year’s lockdown Christmas period and off the back of the huge success of Scare Skate 2021, we’re excited to be bringing in Christmas 2021 in true family festive spirit.
“Whether it’s indoor or outdoor, we’re prepared for all the elements meaning a magical experience can be created for all, no matter the weather!”
