This half term, intu Milton Keynes will be celebrating the first birthday of the intu family club - and you're all invited to join in the fun from 25 May-2 June.
Bring the whole family for a spin as the fairground teacups make a visit to the centre. They're completely free to ride for intu family club members - don't worry if you're not a member, it's free and easy to join online at www.intu.co.uk/miltonkeynes/families/family-club
Then head to the mall for giant games galore - think Connect 4, snakes and ladders, chess and table tennis. There will also be a fossil hunt where little ones can make like explorers and get a sweet treat if they uncover the historic finds hiding around the centre.
Or pop to Waterstones where you'll get to celebrate another important event, because it's The Very Hungry Caterpillar's 50th anniversary, for which Waterstones will be running daily events including competitions and story time, colouring and craft sessions. There will also be a treasure hunt and Liz Pichon, author of the Tom Gates series, will be at the store on Friday for a book signing and activities. On 1-2 June, Elmer will be roaming the store, and you'll be able to enjoy story times, activities and discounts off Elmer goodies, too!
The intu family club gives families access to exclusive offers and discounts while encouraging families to take part in activities and spend time together. Its first birthday will be celebrated across the other intu shopping centres across the UK. By signing up at the customer information desk, you'll make sure that you're always the first to learn about events, plus you'll get a fabulous free gift as well as a free teacup ride if you sign up this half term.
Kirsty McGiff, marketing manager at intu Milton Keynes, said: "At intu Milton Keynes, we like to bring family fun to the centre for all to enjoy together and make sure everyone leaves with a smile on their face!
