I used to skate every week when I was at school and the delight of this was doing it under the winter sun and in the open air. Yes, I know you can skate nowadays all year round, however skating in the open was, for me, something both thrilling and electrifying!

Ice Skating is suitable for ages 2 years and upwards and to aid those children under 5 years, organisers recommend that you rent a Kanga. Kanga is the skate-aid for young children. It will help them balance, or they can glide on his back.
THE RUNWAY Use a snow tube and hold on for the ice ride of your life! At this slide, you can have races with friends. You will get faster as you go down the slope, or you can just lay back and enjoy the snowflakes through your hair.
The ice rink at "Skating At Festival" will be open rain or shine and it's perfectly safe and fun to skate in both of these conditions, after all, it is a winter activity! However, it is strongly recommended that in rain you wear raincoats and a change of clean dry socks and even though it is winter, sunscreen and hats on sunny days.
The ice is constantly monitored as to the weather, to ensure sessions are safe to proceed. If severe storms or electrical storms take place organisers will cancel the session and advise accordingly. This happens 15 minutes before each session to ensure everyone has a chance to skate and that the most current conditions are being assessed.
