Month: October 2017
The Christmas Ice Festival is coming to Liverpool on the 17th November until 7th January! This festival will provide the ultimate christmas experience as it includes things like Ice skating, Ice slide, Ice Bar, Apres Lounge, Ride and games, Pop up food and drink, Santas Grotto, and of course the christmas market stalls!
Get your skates on! Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival is back for another year at the Pier Head.
We are even bigger and better, with more space to skate. Our covered outdoor Ice Rink is situated on one of Liverpool’s best known historic locations, the Pier Head, so you can skate away under a clear canopy to keep you dry and with the stunning Three Graces as a backdrop.
If ice skating isn’t your forte, the penguin skate aids are back to help you glide a little more gracefully across the rink! Open to over-3s.
Feel the freeze in our real Ice Bar! Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival has created a unique cool ice experience featuring a glittering room of crystal clear ice sculptures where even the bar, tables and chairs are carved from real ice.
Prepare to be amazed as you enter this sub-zero world, and don’t worry about catching cold because the only thing super-chilled in this bar are the drinks. On arrival you’ll be given a poncho to keep you warm and a free shot of cocktail in an ice glass. Kids won’t miss out either because there’s an alcohol-free drink for them too.
Feel the exhilarating thrill of a fast-paced ride on the UK’s longest real Ice Slide. Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival has three super-speedy 30m runs so ice riders can experience a heart-racing buzz as they skim along from 6m above the park.
Take in a panoramic view of the festival as it whizzes past and you’ll see the world-famous waterfront from a whole new perspective especially in the evening when it’s lit up and at its prettiest.
When the temperatures drop, what’s your favourite warm-up drink? Mulled wine, a creamy hot chocolate or maybe something a little stronger? Come in from the cold, relax in our Après Lodge and you’ll find plenty of perfect wintry hot and cold drinks to choose from.
Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival Après Lodge can fit up to 200 people, it has big sofas to relax on, and a really family-friendly atmosphere. Plus, on Friday and Saturday nights you can chill out to the sounds of our guest DJs.
