You Can Now Ice Skate In The Sky At This Twinkling Festive Food Market & Entertainment Spot

Joining Escape to Freight Island’s epic Winter Island this month, Mancs will soon be able to skate in the sky – thanks to the popular food and drink complex’s brand new elevated ice rink.

Sitting on a brand new mezzanine made by CONCRETENE – a world first! – the festive new ice rink will be positioned underneath the historic roof of Depot Mayfield, overlooking the hustle and bustle going on within Escape to Freight Island.

Opening this Friday 12th November, coinciding with the launch of the famous Manchester Christmas Markets, skaters will be able to enjoy all that the Winter Island has to offer during their visit, including mulled wine, festive beer and plenty of grub including bratwurst and hog roast sandwiches.

Skaters won’t miss a beat either, with unbeatable views of the stage inside, where there’ll be tons of festive entertainment to enjoy throughout the winter. Expect bands, Christmas film screenings and more, with plenty of Christmas spirit to go around ahead of the big day.
