Derby Ice Rink 2016

This year brings the 6th consecutive year of the ever evolving and successful Derby Christmas Ice Rink. The ‘real ice’ rink has been brought to the historic and beautiful city of Derby courtesy of Showplace Events in collaboration with Derby LIVE. The fun filled and popular attraction will be open from 1st December 2016 until the 4th January 2017.

Last year over 19,000 visitors graced their skates on the ice, with a further estimated 100,000 visitors enjoying the beautiful Christmas setting in the Market Place, and why wouldn’t they, with its offering of a wide range of activities and entertainment for its audiences to relish, it’s the perfect place to spend a wintery day with friends, family and colleagues.

Plans are now in motion to prepare for another exciting and successful year. Yesterday, our Operations Director, Rob Goodman, and Project Manager Ayla Stuart took a field trip down to Derby to meet with local businesses in regards to sponsorship, with some promising things lined up, it’s still not too late to get in on the action!

This exciting and seasonal attraction offers great opportunities for local and national businesses, with loads of ways for businesses to connect with skaters and potential shoppers, we can help advise on how best to bring your brand to the ice and make an impact on the people you want to communicate with most, Christmas Shoppers!
