Leeds is featuring an array of exciting activities and attractions including the much-loved outdoor ice rink, a range of Christmas market stalls and other winter themed attractions.
The magnificent outdoor covered ice rink takes centre stage on Millennium Square. Spanning 400sqm, the stunning transparent marquee-style roof will ensure sessions can take place whatever the weather.
Surrounding the Ice Rink there will be an array of local and international festive food & drink served from charming Bavarian-style market stalls.
Options will include authentic German bratwurst sausages, Yorkshire pudding wraps, Canadian style poutine, toasted marshmallows, churros, waffles and much more.
New for this year, the Ice Cube will also feature a selection of local craft market stalls as part of this year’s city-wide Christmas Markets experience, operated by Market Place Europe, which will feature around 120 Christmas stalls across 13 different areas of the city centre.
The alpine-inspired Ski Bar, complete with the beloved 4m-high illuminated Ski Bear will be back on the square, providing the ideal spot to unwind and indulge the magic of the season with friends and family.
Families and thrill-seekers alike can also look forward to a festive funfair experience with the return of the thrilling 30m high Starflyer, together with the traditional Golden Gallopers carousel ride on Cookridge Street and the 110ft Leeds Wheel of Light on Victoria Gardens as well as a selection of children’s winter-themed rides and games.
Nestled in front of Leeds Art Gallery, the much-loved Thor’s Tipi will once again be bringing their Viking-inspired Christmas experience to Victoria Gardens with hearty winter treats, festive tipples and live music nights. More information can be found on the Thor’s Tipi website.
