Experience the magic of Christmas at Nene Park this winter. From 25 November to 2 January, the heart of Ferry Meadows will be transformed for Christmas, with an open-air ice rink, mini Christmas market and vintage fun fair, festooned with twinkling lights and festive garlands. 

Park visitors can glide into the festive season on our eco-friendly synthetic ice rink, open daily throughout the winter season. The synthetic surface is scientifically engineered to allow skaters to glide just as smoothly as on real ice, whilst having minimal impact on the environment. Suitable for ages 4 and over, prices start from just £6 per skating session and include a certificate for each child as a memento of their time on the ice. It’s the perfect activity to get you and your family and friends into the Christmas spirit, with all proceeds from the ice rink going straight back to maintaining our beautiful Park for all the community to enjoy.

FREE car parking is included with skating sessions, providing an affordable as possible family-friendly Christmas experience in our idyllic Park setting. To book your tickets please visit: www.nenepark.org.uk/christmas

A mini Christmas market full of delicious food and drink will add to the festivities, from warming mulled wine and indulgent hot chocolate to traditional Bratwürst and a mouth-watering selection of sweet treats. You’ll also discover unique gifts and have the opportunity to support local community groups. Continue your shopping in the Ferry Meadows Gift & Farm Shop, full of unique Christmas decorations and exciting gift ideas for your loved ones, alongside a new range of festive Farm Shop produce from our premium local suppliers. 

An exciting vintage fun fair and rides on the festive-themed miniature railway will provide even more entertainment, alongside a variety of children’s crafts and activities, including letter writing to Father Christmas and sharing Christmas wishes on our Park wishing tree. Our fundraising Christmas stars will be available again this year from the Visitor Centre and as a craft activity. The stars will then be hung in the Park for everyone to enjoy.
