Giving box

18 Nov – 20 Dec

Help us make a big difference to underprivileged children in Derbyshire this Christmas by getting involved with our giving box between 18 November and 20 December.

To help us fill our giving box follow these simple steps... Pick up a gift tag from the side of the box (it's located on Level 1 near Debenhams). It will tell you the age of the person to buy for. Then hit the shops and pick up a fantastic present that the recipient would love. Attach your tag to the gift - no need to wrap! Then simply bring your gift back and pop it in the giving box before 20 December and we'll make sure it gets delivered in time for Christmas morning.

Festive get together

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.
