Ice Skate Guernsey 2018

Ice Skate Guernsey is a partnership between The Guernsey Event Company and Blue Diamond Group with a 20 x 20 metre, custom made ice rink installed under cover at Le Friquet Garden Centre.

The entire event is designed, specified, built and operated in-house.  December 2017 saw over 15,000 skaters take to the ice and over 100,000 people walk through the doors of Le Friquet.

A massive undertaking as the flooring is laid, generators craned in, ice is formed, the Skate Exchange – home for over 400 pairs of skates in varying sizes – is erected, staff are trained and a winter wonderland is created for everyone who wants to experience the joyous feeling of skating on ice as the festivities of Christmas of approach.
