Festive ice-skating sessions at Riverside

To help you get into the festive spirit, Riverside are creating a Christmas wonderland on their ice rink for everyone to enjoy. The rink is beautifully decorated and there are plenty of Christmas songs to sing along to as well. Festive treats are available from the mezzanine café and there may be a surprise entrance from one of Riverside's favourite mascots, Pops the Penguin! You can find out dates, times, and prices on their website.
