Escape to Freight Island have announced a magical new addition to Winter Island this festive season – a boutique ICE RINK which will be located on the new worlds-first ‘concretene‘ mezzanine.

Open to public from Friday 12th November, the Rink is positioned underneath the striking industrial roof of Depot Mayfield, part of the semi self-contained winter village, where food and drinks from Winter Island are available and can be pre-ordered – from mulled wine and festive beer, to grilled bratwurst and hog roast sandwiches.

Escape to Freight Island customers can also add in this experience as part of their time in the space, making the huge space a one-stop hang out destination this Christmas.

Skaters will have remarkable views overlooking the stage inside Escape to Freight Island, which has a series of festive entertainment, from Christmas specials with The Untold Orchestra, to showings of all-time favourite Christmas films.

Winter Island at Escape to Freight Island will open from Friday 5th November – as well as ice rink in the sky, it will present a series of free and ticketed events, Christmas tree forest and a host of new festive traders and stalls.
