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

We welcome wheelchair users to  George Square ice rink to take to the ice in their own wheelchairs. All wheelchair users must be accompanied by your companion in skates and they must be a capable skater. Please make yourself known upon arrival that you are a wheelchair user and we can put the appropriate measures in place to assist you to the ice rink.

Session availability for wheelchair users 
For your safety and enjoyment we have designated two exclusive wheelchair sessions for you on 3 & 10 December. Tickets cost £6 and includes entry for a companion and we can also accommodate you on quieter sessions during the week.

For health and safety reasons weekend sessions tend to be at capacity and therefore subject to availability.  Please email the team at George Square on  GOIManagement@glasgowlife.org.uk so we can advise on session availability and if we can accommodate wheelchair users on the ice rink.

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