Freight Island has been transformed into a seasonal extravaganza with a whole host of Christmas events and activities for you to get involved in.
Come down and skate on their boutique ice rink, have breakfast with Santa, shop the markets for Christmas gifts or enjoy an orchestral performance of your favourite Christmas songs!
Positioned underneath the striking industrial roof of Depot Mayfield, the ice rink will be part of a semi self-contained winter village, where food and drinks from Winter Island are available and can be pre-ordered to suit skating needs - from mulled wine and festive beer, to grilled bratwurst and hog roast sandwiches. Escape to Freight Island customers can also add in this experience as part of their time in the space, making the huge space a one stop hang out destination this Christmas.
Skaters will float on ice in the sky with remarkable views overlooking the stage inside Escape to Freight Island, which has a series of festive entertainment, from Christmas specials with The Untold Orchestra, to showings of all-time favourite Christmas films, and so much more – everything anyone could wish for as the festive season sparkles into action. Winter Island and this boutique indoor ice rink in the sky will be a unique destination for everyone to enjoy this winter.
The ice rink opening hours are Monday to Thursday from 4pm until 11pm, and Friday to Sunday from 10am until 11pm. Tickets are priced at £13 / £10 for adult (peak / off-peak times); £11 / £8 for children (peak / off-peak times); and £10 for students.
