Ocean Beach is bringing Winter Wonderland to South Shields including an ice skating rink with real ice to provide visitors with an authentic and unforgettable skating experience!

Skaters will be able to take to the ice undercover in a decorated marquee with music and lights; designed to create that magical winter wonderland experience, day and night, whilst also protecting you from the elements. The ice rink is staffed and maintained by Ocean Beach, whose employees will also provide briefings and first aid where required.
