Accessible Skating Sessions - 2, 3 & 10 December 1pm

Wheelchair users are welcome on the George Square Ice Rink as long as it is deemed safe by our Ice Monitors.

This year we are pleased to announce two exclusive Accessible Skating Sessions on 3 & 10 December. Tickets cost £6 and includes entry for a guest/PA.

On 2 December we offer an exclusive session for visually impaired people who also may not feel comfortable skating during a full session - again, the ticket price includes entry for a guest/PA.

While it may not be possible for wheelchair users to use the rink during very busy sessions, every effort will be made to accommodate your requirements. If you are a wheelchair user and have booked a session and have any queries or concerns about using the rink don't hesitate to contact us at events@glasgowlife.org.uk
