Events company itison is investing over £2m and creating 150 jobs to bring its bespoke, fully covered rink back to the city’s West End, promising it will be bigger, snowier and glowier with a bigger rink, the UK’s first ever Snow Wheel, Skate Side Dining, the Apres Skate Bar, Candyland, a dedicated toddler rink for the wee ones and the chance to skate with Santa.

Oli Norman, creator of Elfingrove and itison CEO, said: “Last year over 100,000 people came along to Elfingrove – this year we’re going even bigger creating a larger rink and amazing new ways to enjoy Elfingrove with our Snow Wheel and Skate Side Dining. And with the cost of living being a very real thing, we wanted to make sure it’s as accessible for as many people as possible with tickets starting as low as £8 to skate.”

What’s new this year?

Snow Wheel – a new way to enjoy Elfingrove from the air as snow falls around you and Christmas tunes fill the air
