Public Sessions cater for all skill levels. An area is set aside for beginners where they can use specially designed skating frames to assist with balance during those first tentative steps on the ice!
Spectators may enter the rink free and enjoy a relaxing cuppa in the air conditioned comfort of the Starpucks Cafe.
Please note for safety reasons there are no beginner skate frames available on the ice during the Friday Night Skate Party.
