Ice-rink one week later than anticipated

19th Apr 2022

The arrival of the 25 meter ice-skating rink – part of Armidale’s Big Chill Festival - has been pushed back by one week and will now be available from 13 to 29 May 2022. The delay stems from the consistent wet weather and availability of contractors to construct the rink. Three separate contractors are required in the construction of the ice-skating rink. They are experiencing delays in current projects, which is having a flow on effect, impacting the dates for the ice-skating rink and being able to align all contractors.
Ice rink sessions will run daily from 10am to 8pm and tickets are available for purchase from Council has also been approved for Dine & Discover vouchers to be redeemed for ice-skating from Tuesday 19 April.
