Welcome to Billingham Forum

Billingham Forum is one of the most iconic leisure destinations in the North East. The Forum, as it is more commonly known, holds particular historical and cultural significance for its diverse offering and abundance of activities that have been entertaining visitors for over 50 years.

In 1967, the Forum was officially opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in front of large crowds who flocked to witness a very special moment for the town and the leisure industry. The building was celebrated as the first leisure centre of its kind in the UK, famed for its pioneering design of the ice rink, and to this day it is leading the way in providing innovative and exciting ways for communities to stay healthy and active. The Forum sits proudly at the heart of the town centre and attracts over 1M visits each year.

Forum Ice Arena

Famous for its ice rink, the Forum Ice Arena is home to ice hockey giants, Billingham Stars, and offers a variety of figure skating, disco and public skate sessions for everyone to enjoy. To view the timetable and choose your session, please visit the Ice Arena website.

GoClimb

GoClimb is a vibrant jungle of interactive climbing walls suitable for children aged 4+. The popular attraction provides hours of fun for many young adventurers and is a great day out for families to keep the kids entertained. Check out the GoClimb website for more information.
