Watford Borough Council and some of the town's key players have joined forces to promote the many festive events and activities taking place in Watford this winter.

Watford Colosseum has not one, but two shows this Christmas. For younger children, 'Santa Claus and the Magical Christmas Journey' is filled with festive cheer, whilst the classic 'Miracle on 34th Street' will appeal to the whole family.

The Watford Palace pantomime has been a Christmas tradition for the local community since 1908 and this year's offering is 'Dick Whittington', filled to the brim with slapstick humour, brilliant singing, a live band and festive cheer. Songs are a winning mix of old and new so whether you're three or eighty-three, those toes are sure to be tapping!

Watford's Big Skate is back at The Parade – from November 28th until January 10th, you will be treated to a bigger and better outdoor ice rink than ever before! You can even sip on some mulled wine and spend a little time at Watford's first German Christmas Market in the town centre to really get into the Christmas spirit.

intu Watford will have its charity wrapping desk throughout December until Christmas eve, helping to raise money for local charities and community groups (and helping gift-wrapping-challenged residents at the same time!) Plus little shoppers will be treated to a variety of entertainment, with magicians, balloon artists, face painting, a Santa's workshop and of course, the new magical, snowman-themed grotto, which is open now.

Watford Market is also getting into the Christmas spirit; as well as hosting the town's first German market, there will be a wide selection of festive products on offer from its independent traders.

And if you want to share your experience, it's easy, as intechnologyWiFi will be rolling out a free, public WiFi network across Watford, as well as developing an official mobile app for the town.

There is so much planned for Watford this Christmas; for more information and to book tickets all you have to do is visit Winter in Watford.
