Twickenham Alive Ice Rink

In recent years temporary ice rinks as part of the winter festivities have become very popular.  The Richmond Ice Rink in East Twickenham was known all over the world and was extremely popular and the intention is to provide a small temporary ice rink on Twickenham Riverside in the grounds of York House.

The event will be operated by Twickenham Alive and the rink supplied by Stage Electrics, the UK and Ireland dealer for Ice-World a market leader in the provision of real ice rinks.  The rink will operate for six weeks between 30th November 2013 and 12th January 2014.

The rink will be located on the tennis courts in the grounds of Grade II listed York House, headquarters of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.  The ice rink will be 300m2 with a maximum capacity of 100 skaters per 45 minute session; there will be 10 sessions a day between 10:00 and 19:45 seven days a week, except for Christmas Day.  Two marquees will adjoin the rink to provide ticket sales, skate exchange and viewing facilities.

The Twickenham Alive rink is modelled on the EDF EyeSkate rink at the London Eye, which is of a similar size and was also provided and installed by Stage Electrics.  A Case study can be seen at:


The rink uses the latest technology and the aluminium based Ice-World rinks are up to 40 percent more economical in terms of energy consumption than traditional ice rinks that use either rubber or polyethylene.  This efficiency enables equipment to be turned down, or even off, at night.

The day to day operation of the rink will be managed by a professional Rink Manager, supported by experienced supervisors and rink staff.
