Christmas is covered at intu Watford!

The festive season is a busy time for everyone but as Christmas approaches fast, intu Watford will help you make it a magical one!

Christmas is on it's way so don't miss your family trip to visit Santa’s grotto at intu Watford, in association with Playmobil, at the new location in the Gallery above NEXT. The grotto is open now until Christmas Eve and a visit to Santa's magical Christmas Lodge costs just £3 per child and includes a free gift from Playmobil. There is even a special offer with no booking fees for weekday bookings in November using promo code EBWAT16, and you can book online.

During December there will also be free family fun including a treasure hunt, colouring in, Santa’s sleigh story time and face painting.

The charity Christmas gift wrapping service starts on Thursday 1st December with a different charity in the centre each day up until Christmas Eve. Volunteers from local charities including Watford Mencap and Hectors House will be manning the desk ready to get your presents wrapped in exchange for a donation.

If you are stuck for present ideas, then an intu gift card is the perfect solution! They are valid for 12 months from the date of issue and are available from £5 - £1,000, and can be used in 1,000's of stores across all intu centres. Get yours online or from the Customer Service desk on the Upper Mall at intu Watford.

From 1st December, Vibe 107.6 FM will be running the fantastic Advent Calendar Competition, in association with intu Watford. There will be amazing prizes to be won on the weekday Breakfast Show - more details coming soon!

Plus there is free parking on weekdays after 6.00pm in Kings, Queen, Palace or Charter car parks plus late night opening will start from Monday 5th December.
