Leiston on Ice! Leiston’s Christmas Event 2018

This year Leiston has booked an ice skating rink for our Christmas event!

Tickets for skating are £6.50 per person for a half-hour session, and pre-booked tickets, group discounts, and family tickets are discounted. Ice skate rental is included in the ticket price (Kids 9 – Adult 11). Bring your own skates if you like, but no speed skates are allowed! No cameras on the ice, and please wear warm appropriate clothing.

Buy your tickets for the ice skating rink ahead of time so that you don’t miss out! Tickets can be purchased through the Leiston Film Theatre and their online booking system.

Book your ice skating tickets ASAP so you don’t miss out!
