Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

 

To manage the impact of Covid-19 in Leeds and ensure the safety and wellbeing of our audiences and all Leeds City Council staff, we must continue to stay at home as much as possible in order to control the virus and save lives.

 

The majority of our events until the end of July have either been cancelled or postponed to a later date. These include the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds, the Leeds Food & Drink Festival, 80s Classical, Club Classical Anthems, Raiders Of The Lost Ark In Concert, One Night Under The Stars, Salute to Reggae, Will Young & James Morrison, The Popworld Festival, the Brutus Gold's Love Train and the Leeds Ska & Mod Festival. All other scheduled events are currently being reviewed on a weekly basis and we will keep you informed of any changes and their implications as soon as we can. In the meantime we will continue to develop our online content and look forward to engaging with as many people as possible through our social media channels.  

 

If you have bought tickets to any of our events, a member of our Box Office team will be in touch with you shortly. If you have any queries please contact boxoffice@leeds.gov.uk and allow our team to either respond via email or call you back. If that’s not possible, please call the team on 0113 376 0318 (Mon-Fri between 10am and 5pm). Please be prepared for a short wait as our Box Office team are now working remotely. Voicemail messages will be collected on a regular basis and someone will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. Please be assured that every ticket holder will be contacted either by email, telephone or post. We won’t forget you.

Glide your way into the new decade as Ice Cube turns 20!

The city will once again be getting its skates on when Leeds’ coolest wintertime attraction returns to Millennium Square this Friday 31 January to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Open until Sunday 23 February, Ice Cube will once again give visitors a chance to whizz around the ice under a specially covered outdoor real ice rink complete with a transparent marquee style roof.

The attraction’s penguin club on Saturday and Sunday mornings will mean children can take their first steps on to the ice in a fun and safe environment with the assistance of the popular penguin skating aids.

A limited number of one-to-one skating lessons with a qualified coach will also be available every weekend morning for those willing to brush up on their skating skills and a dedicated accessible session will once again take place every Thursday morning at 10am for wheelchair users and other disabled persons.

In addition to the ice rink, the Ice Cube will host a wide range of winter-themed family rides and attractions including the Radio Aire Ice Slide, North Pole Star Flyer, the adrenaline-fuelled Ice Jet and many more.

Plus, a range of hot and cold drinks, winter warmers and tasty treats will be readily available for all visitors from the Skate Escape Café.

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said:

“The return of Ice Cube is always one of the highlights of our events calendar and this will be the 20th year in a row that Millennium Square will be giving thousands of people and families the chance to enjoy skating at the heart of the city centre and get active after enjoying their Christmas and New Year celebrations.

“We’re very fortunate to have such a unique space where we can host a varied programme of events which bring people together year after year.”

Event media partner Radio Aire will be providing the official soundtrack to this year’s event and will be on hand every Saturday afternoon with competitions, random acts of kindness and a free glitter station.

Radio Aire Breakfast presenter Ant Arthur says ‘Ice Cube is the highlight of the city in February, we are so proud to be the official media partner for another year. We have loads of chances to win ice skating passes, full information will be released on the show week days Monday to Friday from 7am. We have a very special Valentine’s Day event planned, you can apply online to join the party hosted by us!’

Admission tickets for all public ice skating sessions are on sale now and are priced at (including booking fees) £9 adults, £7.50 for LEEDSCard and LEEDSCard Extra holders and £7 for children under 13 and BreezeCard holders.
