Families of children and young people across Wolverhampton can enjoy the free ice rink in the city centre for even longer, thanks to the City of Wolverhampton Council and Enjoy Wolverhampton, which have added extra dates for the popular activity.

Located in Queen Square, the ice rink is free and one of many activities put on by Enjoy Wolverhampton for local people this Christmas. 

And to ensure that as many children, young people and their families can join in the fun, extra dates have been added, with the ice rink being open from 11am to 5pm until 30 December thanks to funding from the Department for Education’s Holiday Activities and Food programme.

It is one of a number of activities being laid on by the council, in partnership with local organisations, as part of the Yo! Christmas holiday programme, which is now underway. For full details, please visit Yo Wolves.  

Councillor Mike Hardacre, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education and Skills said: “Creating opportunities for our city’s children and young people is a major priority for the council and we are delighted to be working with Enjoy Wolverhampton to extend the free ice rink and ensure our youngsters have the most fun they can over the Christmas holidays. 

“The ice rink is just one part of a packed programme of events and activities planned this Christmas for all to enjoy, and I would urge families to find out more at Yo Wolves and book their places today.”

Cherry Shine, Director of Enjoy Wolverhampton, added: “It has been fantastic to see families skating and enjoying the Ice Rink in Queen Square for the past three weeks and now that the school holidays are here, we expect to see even more keen skaters each day.  

“By working together with council, we are so thrilled to be able to extend the Ice Rink attraction further by adding four additional dates from 27 to 30 December.”
