  The ALICE (Accelerators and Lasers In Combined Experiments) accelerator at STFC Daresbury Laboratory in the UK was conceived in 2003 and constructed as a short-term Energy Recovery Linac demonstrator to develop the underpinning technology and expertise required for a proposed 600MeV ERL-based FEL facility. In this paper we present an update on the performance and status of ALICE which now operates as a funded IR-FEL user facility. We discuss the challenges of evolving a short-term demonstrator into a stable, reliable user facility and present a summary of the current scientific programme.
