Organisers of Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland – ’s annual ice rink and vintage funfair – today announced that due to the ongoing pandemic, they would be delaying the ’s return to McArthurGlen’s Designer Outlet, and are aiming to open in February next year.

Manager Georgina Wood, said:

With the elevation of restrictions to tier 2 in York, and the general uncertainty across our region regarding the progression of Covid-19, we have regrettably decided that postponing the event until early next year seems the most sensible course of action.


Ms Wood said:

While we’re disappointed that Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland won’t be part of in York this year, we are excited to be a new experience for our visitors and intend to open on 12 February 2021 – in time for Valentine’s weekend! As our name implies, we are a winter event, and the weather will be perfect for skating on the north of England’s largest and best-loved outdoor ice rink – The Ice Factor – at that time of year.

The four-time award-winning Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland has been a fixture at York Designer Outlet each Christmas since 2010, having made its debut on the Eye of York in the city centre in 2004.
