Plymouth Pavilions ice rink has closed for the final time



Plymouth's ice rink has closed for the last time after 30 years. It was announced in October 2022 that the ice rink facility at Plymouth Pavilions would be shutting down permanently due to a "huge" increase in energy costs.

Saturday, December 31 marked the last skate at Plymouth Pavilions as the venue's ice rink was open for its final day. All of the day's sessions were fully booked as people jumped at the opportunity to take to the ice for one last time.

In October, CEO of Plymouth Pavilions Sarah Philips confirmed that the ice rink would be closing after three decades due to "rising costs" and ongoing challenges following the COVID-19 pandemic. The rise in costs coincided with the expiration of the contract for the provision of Sports/Leisure Ice and Arena facilities between Plymouth City Council and Five Directions Limited, which was not extended or replaced.
