Taunton to get ice rink this Christmas

Somerset West and Taunton Council has confirmed that it will bring an ice rink to Taunton as part of this years’ festive offering.

The Christmas Ice Rink, operated by iSK8, will be at Castle Green from 9 December until 5 January.

Cllr Marcus Kravis, Executive Member for Economic Development, said:

“We are excited to give people the chance to experience the magic of skating on real ice in Taunton town centre. It’s a great way to celebrate Christmas.

The ice rink will provide a family-friendly festive experience as part of the programme of events this year.

We hope it will prove to be a big attraction for people all over the district, generating an increase in the number of people visiting the town over the Christmas period and giving a boost to local traders.”

The rink will be open to the public every day except Christmas Day with various opening hours.

Full details of available sessions can be found here.

Pre-booking online is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.

The ice rink will be in a marquee with Christmas lights and music, so unpredictable weather won’t stop people from skating.

The Council is working with the Winterfest organisers to co-ordinate the Christmas offering in Taunton this year.
