Life launches 2-for-1 skating offer

There’s no need to be stuck in the house whilst trying to stick to a budget this January, as Life Science Centre is now offering two weekday skating sessions for the price of one on its cool outdoor ice rink.

Whether you didn’t quite manage to take to the ice during the festive period, or you just fancy another spin around the rink, get your skates on and head to Life by 17 February 2017 to take advantage of this limited time offer.

In order to claim this offer, wannabe skaters simply need to visit Life’s website (, and download the voucher. Visitors must present the voucher at the Life Science Centre reception – either in paper format or on a smartphone – in order to claim their discounted skating session.

Don’t forget, booking is not required for the ice rink; skaters can turn up on the day and purchase their tickets at the main Science Centre reception.

•Voucher Ts and Cs: Valid on weekdays only from 9 January - 17 February 2017. Excludes Saturdays and Sundays. Not valid in conjunction with any other offer or promotion. Can’t be used for group bookings of 10 people or more.

•Children aged 9 and under must be accompanied by an adult on the ice rink. Children aged 10 to 12 must be supervised by an adult (adults can watch from the viewing platform if they prefer).

About Life

The Centre for Life is a pioneering science village based in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne where scientists, researchers, doctors and nurses work alongside people in the fields of education, public engagement and business.

Now established as one of the most successful of the country's 14 landmark Millennium projects, Life is an independent and self-funding charitable trust with a robust business plan that eliminates reliance on public funding for its operating costs.

Almost 600 people from 35 countries work on site. What unites everyone is a passion for science.

Life's mission is to be the best place in the UK for enthusing and engaging everyone in science and to provide support and state-of-the-art facilities on site so that world class scientific research in medicine can flourish.

On site partners include Newcastle University, who chose Life as the location for its Institute of Genetic Medicine; the NHS Newcastle Fertility Centre; the NHS Northern Genetics Service and several young and vibrant biotechnology companies.

At the heart of the science village is the Life Science Centre which attracts around 250,000 visitors per year. As well as a family audience, Life's public engagement programme attracts a broad audience to its edgy evenings combining cocktails and science; stimulating lectures; and special sessions for pre-schoolers and teenagers. Life also provides the largest schools' science workshop programme in any European museum or Science Centre.
