THREE additional support needs ice skating sessions will be held at the Christmas Fair @ George Square this year.
The sessions will be held at 10am on Sunday, December 4, 11, and 18. Each one has been carefully curated to support people and their families with ASN requirements by making it a more sensory-friendly environment.
Visitor capacity to the ice rink will be reduced from 150 to 100 and the sound and lighting will be toned down to make the experience more sensory-sensitive and comfortable.

Skating aids will also be available if required, and there will also be a chill-out zone providing a quiet space for relaxation.

The Christmas Fair @ George Square will feature lots of entertainment and activities from December 1 until January 8.
As well as the open-air ice rink, George Square will include a 100ft observation wheel alongside traditional rides, including a helter-skelter, Victorian carousel, Venetian flying chairs and lots more.
From November 18, the Christmas Fair @ St Enoch Square will include thrill rides such as the blizzard and Santa’s runaway train, as well as lots of outdoor food venues.
