Ready, steady, SKATE, at Letchworth Outdoor Pool!

08 November 2021

Get in the festive spirit this winter with a spot of ice-skating at Letchworth’s very own state-of-the-art ice rink.

Skate Letchworth returns bigger and better than before, with a covered real ice rink on the terrace of the outdoor pool at Norton Common, Icknield Way, from Saturday 20 November to Sunday 2 January.

Children as young as four can take to the ice, and it’s also a great activity for adults – group bookings are available so it’s the perfect solution for that office Christmas party!  And the café will be offering a variety of festive treats and hot drinks to warm you up while you’re there.

The Outdoor Pool and Skate Letchworth, among other facilities in the North Herts district, are provided on the Council’s behalf by Stevenage Leisure Ltd (SLL).

Councillor Steve Jarvis, Executive Member for Environment and Leisure, said: “It’s really great to have the ice rink back in Letchworth this year, after missing out 2020 due to the restrictions of the pandemic.  We had a successful first season in 2019, and hope residents take advantage of having this fantastic facility on their doorstep once again.” 

James Bliss, Regional Contract Manager, at SLL said: “The outdoor pool is the perfect destination for budding skaters this winter. Skate Letchworth is a great activity to have some festive fun with friends and family.”

On Saturday 18 December, Skate Letchworth will be host to a magical Prince and Princess Party – children will love living out their Frozen dreams with 45 minutes of ice-skating, followed by 45 minutes of party games. They’ll be special guest princesses and each child can take home a special fairy wand to remember the experience!

Whether it’s your first time on the ice or you’re a seasoned pro, it’s great fun for everyone, so round up your family and friends and join us at Skate Letchworth this winter – book online now!
