Annual Fire & Ice Festival steals the show at Walkergate!

A larger than life statue isn’t something you see everyday, but last month at Walkergate, that’s exactly what visitors to Walkergate Durham were met with. 

The almost ten-foot-tall Oscar statuette carved from clear ice saw the red carpet rolled out as part of Durham Bid’s Fire & Ice Festival. The annual event blends the heat of the flame with the artistic display of hand carved masterpieces. We have to say, that’s pretty cool. 

A big thanks to Lane 7, RIO Brazilian Steakhouse, Katie O’Brien’s, Bohemia, Slug & Lettuce, The Bishops’ Mill, Champagne Bar by Ebony, Ask Italian and Nando’s – our fantastic tenants at Walkergate who helped support and sponsor the two-day installation. 

A massive thank you also to everyone who visited Walkergate and posed for pictures, in our eyes you’re the stars of the show!  We’re already looking forward to welcoming you back for Fire & Ice 2025!
