Bolton Winter Festival


Bolton Winter Festival, Bolton.

Project Brief:

Our clients from Bolton Winter Festival were in the market for a real ice rink that covered over 400sqm. Due to our track record and our ability to provide an efficient service whilst maintaining quality, we were more than happy to provide Bolton with a genuine ice rink. The city centre location, on the square adjacent to the town hall, meant there were no fixings available. Icescape needed to provide in excess of 80 tonnes of additional underfloor weights to secure the installation.

The Solution:

The rink was housed beneath a large structure, provided by marquee hire specialists Danco and this was the very first time the rink was covered. Transparent PVC roof panels, combined with the quick freezing properties of our ice, has proven to be the most desirable way to maintain quality skating conditions. The ever changing weather would no longer be an issue and skaters still experience all the benefits of an open air rink.

The clearspan marquee spanned over the full length of the rink and covered the skate exchange. Inside the skate exchange, Icescape provided the skate racks and counters to house over 280 pairs of skates and 20+ folding benches.

Bespoke at Bolton

We are able to provide a bespoke package to meet our clients’ needs, from skates and wooden chalets, to food and beverage. Icescape are happy to provide everything required to create the most successful rink experience possible. Providing concession stands can add to the commercial success of an already profitable ice rink.

Danco fashioned a ramp on the entrance for ease of access for all customers, ensuring health and safety regulations are being followed.

As one of the largest providers of real ice rink hire in the UK, Icescape pride themselves on supplying high quality, bespoke ice rinks using specialist equipment which guarantees the highest standard in skating experiences.
