Highest Skater Numbers to Date at Derby Ice Rink!

IceRinkArielShotThe Showplace Events team have once again broken the record for the highest number of skaters to date at the Derby Christmas Ice Rink in 2013. In its fourth year, built and managed by Showplace, the rink saw skater numbers reach 17,500.  

The event, which has grown in popularity year on year, kicked off with a fabulous display from a group of young talented skaters at the launch event in November, continuing on for a further six week duration.

A mixture of weekly live entertainment and festive markets nestled nicely alongside the rink, made for a magical setting once again in Marketplace. Additional highlights included the iconic Christmas Coca-cola truck stopping by at the rink on its UK tour and Hip Hop on Ice which featured some of the country’s leading Hip-Hop DJ’s.

A big thank you to our sponsors and partners involved in making the event a success; Showplace LtdDerby LIVECathedral QuaterGem106QuadNando’sCosmo and Penguin PR.
