Join the Mayor of Felixstowe for a festive cheer at the 11am opening of our Christmas Ice Rink at Great Eastern Square, Hamilton Road, on Wednesday 20 December.

Thanks to the generous support of the East of England Coop, Felixstowe Town Council is once again able to offer public skating free of charge, between 11am to 7pm, from Wednesday 20 until Saturday 23 December.  Skates of all size are provided and there is no need to book.

With fun rides for children of all ages, a snow machine, festive music plus freshly made food and drink, there will be something for everyone at the Great Eastern Square Ice Rink this year.

Mayor of Felixstowe, Nick Barber, said: “It is another great event for Felixstowe. Many thanks to The East of England Co-op for their continued support and I am sure it will be very popular”

Andrew Dawes, Head of Specialist Retail at the East of England Co-op, said:

“We’re very pleased to have once again been able to offer our support and are looking forward to welcoming the ice rink back to Great Eastern Square. It’s a great activity for all the family, growing in popularity over the years. I’m sure this winter will be no exception.”
