The Festivities are in full swing at intu Lakeside’s Christmas village

IF you’re looking for festive fun, intu Lakeside has got it all this year at its Christmas Village which is now open for visitors until 1 January 2017. Magical wishes are being granted in Santa’s grotto, a traditional German Market is serving up delicious festive treats, whilst a stunning ice rink can be found at the heart of Christmas Village which is located in Car Park 3.

Glide into Christmas

This year, intu Lakeside has welcomed its first ever ice rink, offering visitors the chance to really get into the Christmas spirit. The rink, which is fully sheltered, features live music and its very own Crystal Bar where guests can enjoy a range of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, including festive cocktails and hot chocolate.

There will also be a variety of events taking place on the ice over the Christmas period, including Christmas carols and a silent disco! Check out the website for more information about the ice rink and to book your tickets –

Enjoy the German market

If you’re left feeling peckish after your skating session, then why not head over to the enchanting German market where German bratwurst sausages, sweet treats and refreshments are on offer. You’ll also find some great rides for the little ones to enjoy whilst you sip on a delicious mulled wine.

Meet the man himself…

Of course, no Christmas experience would be complete without taking a trip to Santa’s magical grotto. Watch the little ones’ faces light up as they enter the grotto and enjoy the enchanted interactive activities as they make their way inside before meeting Santa himself. They’ll also receive a very special Playmobil gift to complete their visit.

Marc Myers, General Manager at intu Lakeside comments: “The festive season is certainly in full swing here at intu Lakeside’s Christmas Village. The ice rink has already proven exceedingly popular with all our customers and it has provided a fantastic addition to our Christmas festivities at the centre. We’re delighted that so many people have already enjoyed their experience at Christmas Village and we’re looking forward to welcoming many, many more.”

Head down to Car Park 3 near House of Fraser to find intu Lakeside’s charming Christmas Village.
