Ice Festival Returns! Friday 7 November - Sunday 4 January

Join Liverpool ONE this winter for the return of our enchanting Ice Festival - the urban ice experience that will put you in the Christmas spirit!

Come rain, sleet or snow you’ll have a great time skating on our covered ice rink located on Chavasse Park! After the excitement on the rink, you can relax and unwind in our Après Bar with a hot tipple, or a Christmas cooler in our very own Ice Bar. The little ones will be entertained with a host of festive rides and attractions. This year also marks the return of our real Ice Slide, making Ice Festival an un-missable experience.

Beat the queues and pre-book your tickets online!
