Free skating sessions take place at Caldecott Park later this month. Published Monday, 6th December 2021

The environmentally-friendly, synthetic ice rink forms part of Rugby Wintertime, the council's festive family entertainment programme funded by the Welcome Back Fund.

The ice rink opens on Wednesday 15 December, offering free skating sessions from 1pm to 7pm, Monday to Friday, and from 11am to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

The half-hour skating sessions were fully booked within hours of registration opening online, but residents can still register on a waiting list to receive notifications when sessions become available due to cancellations. 

Skating sessions take place until 30 December. For more information, visit

In addition to the skating sessions in Caldecott Park, Rugby Wintertime includes The Snowman and The Snowdog BRICKLIVE trail, which takes you on a festive tour of the town centre to discover characters from the much-loved animated film.

The interactive trail features 16 wonderful toy brick models, including four large-scale models perfect for memorable photo opportunities and 12 smaller models, all made from brightly coloured toy bricks.

You can pick up a trail map from Rugby Art Gallery and Museum. Once on the trail, you can answer a question inspired by each model and, once completed, enter a draw at Rugby Visitor Centre for a chance to win one of a range of trail-inspired prizes.

Cllr Jill Simpson-Vince, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for growth and investment, said: "Skating in Caldecott Park promises to deliver a little Christmas magic to Rugby during December and together with The Snowman and The Snowdog BRICKLIVE trail, offers free family entertainment in the town centre over the festive season.

"The Rugby Wintertime programme promises to carry on our support for the town centre, boosting business and the wider economy in the run-up to Christmas.

"Our successful applications to the Government's Welcome Back Fund have allowed us to support the town centre in a variety of ways, from safety messaging and advising businesses on trading safely following restrictions to bringing a beach and open air cinema to Rugby over the summer."

The Welcome Back Fund has distributed money from the European Regional Development Fund.
