There is a choice of rooms available for buffet-style receptions with optional private bar and waitress service.

Special options vary, ranging from dropping the match puck to guided tour of the facilities and dressing rooms, and presenting the Man of the Match award. Packages can be tailored to your needs and budget, and start from as little as £350 per game.
Advertising Boards The arena houses the oval- shaped ice pad, itself surrounded by barriers of toughened plastic ideal for advertising boards. Placing your logo on theses boards guarantees it will be seen by over 1000 people every week at our home games. Add to this 5 weekly disco skating sessions, numerous junior and recreational hockey matches and figure skating competitions, and that numbers soars.
Ice and Zamboni advertising
What do you need to advertise a logo? How about a big white space that everyone can see? If that sounds like a good idea why not put your company logo into the ice! Do you know what a Zamboni is? No, it’s not an Italian ice cream but it is the name of the machine that cleans the ice! It is used before the game, twice during and after, not to mention over 50 times during the week.
