Whitby Ice Rink
Brought to you by Welcome to Whitby CIC with support from Scarborough Borough Council and The Yorkshire Coast BID this year is Whitby's very own ice rink! This promises to be a truly unique event in the heart of Whitby. Don't worry if you have never tried ice skating before, all ages and abilities are welcome.
Open from 26th November 2021 until 2nd January 2022 there will be a 10m x 15m (150m²) undercover real ice rink in the centre of town. You will be able to skate in all weather throughout the day with session times from 10 am until 8 pm (except Christmas Day). Each session will run for 1 hour, from doors opening to skaters leaving the ice.
There will be competitions, displays and group tickets available. School groups are welcome. Why not have a works event on Ice with one of their exclusive tickets? That way your company can have the whole rink for a session.
Pre-Booking is essential. You can book tickets here.
They are proud to announce skaters from Billingham Ice Skating Arena will take to the ice on the opening night of Whitby Winter Festival 2021, 26th November 2021. Each skater will perform a solo skate followed by a group performance. All the skaters are of mixed ability and age and all skaters are competitive skaters who attend local and National events.
So are you ready for Christmas magic to head to Whitby? We certainly are!
