Our showcase exhibition at People’s History Museum has been featured in an article in the Manchester Evening News.

The article concentrates on some newly discovered images from the Manchester Ice Palace in Cheetham Hill. They show skaters at the venue on Derby Street, which was once one of the finest ice skating rinks in the world. It closed in 1967 but the building still remains, now used as a clothing warehouse.

If these images bring back any memories for you of the famous Manchester Ice Palace, we would love to hear them. Please go to our Memory Book and add them to our collection.

The exhibition runs from 25th November to 4th February at People’s History Museum in Manchester and features over 60 new images from our collection.
