If, like us, you just can't wait for Christmas, there are loads of ways you can get Christmassing with us, from our festive forest experience for littles ones and fantastic Christmas entertainment to late night shopping and our annual choir competition - intu Derby really is the perfect place to spend Christmas.
Take a trip to our magical festive forest, full of fun and interactive games for children. Come and jump into our snow ball pool, zoom down our glacier slides and show off at our ice-cool climbing area. You can even meet Santa himself, on weekends in December.
This Christmas we will be giving away a fantastic prize each and every day of advent on our Facebook Page. Each day from 1 - 24 December we will be opening a door on our advent calendar and revealing one of this year's must-have presents. Every day customers can enter to win that day's prize, which will be anything from a top kids toy or a must-have fashion item to a great night out or brilliant beauty box.
Up until 18 December boys and girls will be able to write their Christmas wishes for Santa and pop them in our post box by our Customer Service Desk. Our Christmas elves will then hand deliver them to Santa himself where Santa will read each and every letter and send back a personalised reply to every child in time for Christmas.
We know your December days in the run-up to Christmas will be packed full of festive fun making it a little tricky to pick up those last few gifts. That's why from 4 December we'll be open later than normal to help you get everything you need for Christmas at a time that's convenient for you. From 4 - 17 December we'll be open until 8pm Mondays to Saturdays and from 18 - 24 December we'll be open until 10pm Mondays to Saturdays.
Spending your evenings with us this Christmas doesn’t have to cost you a sleigh load in car park fees. You can park with us from 5pm all the way up until 6am for just £2. For full details on all of our car parks and tariffs click the button below.

There's so much more to winter nights than late night shopping here at intu Derby. Meet up with friends, family and work colleagues and strike it lucky at Hollywood Bowl, putt the night away at Paradise Island Adventure Golf, take in a festive performance at Derby Theatre or enjoy a Christmas flick at Showcase Cinema de Lux.
Savour the moment this Christmas at one of our fantastic restaurants. Taste brilliant Christmas menus from around the world from the likes of Zizzi, Wagamama, MEXIco, Pizza Express, Nandos, Carluccio’s, Byron and more. Fancy a quick bite during your Christmas shop? Our food court is filled to the brim with fabulous fast food for customers on the go and you can now grab a bite even later thanks to our extended food court opening times.
The centre will be open from 9am - 6pm on Boxing Day and 10am - 5pm on New Year's Day. Please be aware that some stores may be closed on both or either of these dates so it's best to check with them directly.
