Ice Skating at Winter Glow

Our all-weather ice rink is going to be beautifully decorated to bring festive cheer, giant Christmas trees and will feature exciting lighting and of course plenty of festive music to glide along to.

Right next to the rink you’ll find an ice cafe serving warm drinks and a selection of snacks where you can unwind after your session on the ice. Your ticket will also grant you entry to the Festive Food Quarter which is where our fantastic food traders will be, keep an eye on our news stories to find out who will be joining us!

Getting to the ice rink

Malvern is located conveniently to service three counties. The Three Counties Showground is the perfect location for our ice rink, families from Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire can easily come and join the fun! There are Brown Signs on the roads from all main routes which will lead you to the free car park. The closest train station is Great Malvern and from there it’s about 8 minutes in a taxi.

Dates, tickets and pricing

The ice rink will be open for a period of 58 days between Friday 12th November 2021 to 9th January 2022 from 10am until 9pm each day. The ice rink is closed on Christmas Day.

Tickets are priced between £7 and £14 depending on which date and time your session is, each skate session will last 45 minutes but we recommend allowing 1.5 hours to allow for getting and returning your skates to the skate hire reception. Excitingly, some sessions will also have special events such as Princess Parties, Live Music and DJs.

The whole ice rink is available for exclusive hire, please get in touch with us if you’re a school group or planning a larger scale event for your friends. The ice rink can be used to host your school or work’s Christmas party! We’d recommend getting int touch quickly as we can only offer exclusive use of the ice rink for sessions that don’t have existing bookings.

Prebook children’s skate aids

Our Belugga Whale skate aids are available to pre-book alongside your tickets. Pre- booking is important to make sure we have enough for your child in your chosen skate session. We wouldn’t want anyone to be disappointed.

The Belugga Whale skate aids provide the necessary support on the ice rink whist they develop their skill and confidence, and they can also offer a fun seat back ride between skating parents and children.

Stay warm and dry whilst you ice skate!

Although our ice rink is covered, the ice rink itself is not heated (heat doesn’t mix well with frozen water!). We recommend wearing gloves and jackets and trousers that dry quickly, even if you have the balance or skate skills Torvill and Dean and don’t fall, you still may get splashed .


Our lit car park is free for all of our visitors and disabled car parking spaces are available. Manual wheelchairs can be accommodated on the ice. Motorised wheelchairs are not permitted on the ice.

Skaters who prefer a more peaceful experience will be able to join ‘sensory friendly’ sessions on. The music will be at a lower volume with softer lighting and no strobe lights. These sessions will be on 2nd, 8th, 13th, 14th, 28th December 2021 and at 11am on 3rd January 2022.
