York Ice Trail 2020

Date: 1st & 2nd February

Once upon a time, there was a city called York. In the depths of winter a spell was cast over the city. As if by magic, 40 sculptures of solid ice appeared, providing the people of York with frosty, fantastical and fairy-tale fun.

Live carving, hands-on experiences and the chance to win great prizes will provide you with some happily ever after.
