Derby Ice Rink Now Open!


Showplace is delighted to announce that the Derby Ice Rink is now officially open once again in Derby’s Market Place until Tuesday 5th January 2016, courtesy of Showplace Events in collaboration with Derby LIVE.

Last year the festive ice rink proved to be a popular attraction with over 19,000 visitors gracing their skates on the ice! A further estimated 100,000 visitors enjoyed the beautiful Christmas setting in the Market Place, making it the perfect festive day/night out with friends, family and colleagues. However, it doesn’t end there, the ice rink also plays host to local Christmas market stalls offering a variety of exciting activities and entertainment, an ideal place to spend a wonderful wintery day!

Although only in its 3rd day since opening, the ice rink has received much popular coverage, covered on local television and radio, including our media partner Capital FM, which has helped to raise its awareness and boost popularity amongst the Derby locals.

Every year Showplace work hard to make the annual attraction bigger and better than before. This year’s festivities will host a number of fun filled themed nights including:

  • 80’s, 90’s, 00’s nights
  • Movie Night
  • Sci-Fi Night
  • Animated Children’s Film Night
  • Christmas Jumper/Onesie Night
  • Christmas Fancy Dress Night

We know this year’s ice rink will deliver everything promised – an exciting, festive and fun filled day, and we look forward to greeting you on the ice!
