The rink will be the spectacular centrepiece of the festivities set to transform MediaCity, which will also include a Christmas Market and light festival. The Ice Rink will also feature ‘The Retreat‘ – a winter cabin offering treats for skaters and non-skaters alike.

The ice rink and Retreat will provide the perfect ‘winter escape’ from the madness of the city centre, offering a magical festive experience by the river at MediaCityUK. The destination is easily accessible by tram and road transport links with ample parking making it a stress free option this Christmas.

The ice rink offers a unique family-friendly festive experience with everything from Penguin Helpers for little ones to the perfect mulled wine for Mum and Dad – there’s plenty of opportunities to make truly special memories this Christmas.

The Retreat will provide a cosy cabin complete with wooden bench seating, faux furs, festoon fairy lights and lots of warm nooks in which to snuggle up and enjoy the rink from afar.

The perfect setting to get you in the mood for a cosy, magical Christmas there will be hot cider, homemade mulled wine, draft beers, wines, a range of soft drinks, teas and coffees. They’ve not forgotten hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream, and, of course, there will be hot Vimto on tap too.

There will be happy hour offers from 5pm till 7pm Monday to Friday with draft beers and mulled wine at £3.50.

Whether you’re looking for a magical destination for the family, the perfect after-work festive experience, a weekend out with friends or something to do after the theatre – Manchester Ice Rink at MediaCityUK is your one stop winter wonderland.
