Christmas Roller Disco
Open from 2nd to 31st December, the Christmas roller rink can be found on the upper mall in the unit next to Tailor & Co/ WH Smiths.
Sessions are free and skate hire is included, however we advise you to pre-book to avoid disappointment. When booking a session you are invited to make a voluntary donation to Atria Watford's chosen charity – Watford Mencap.
The Roller Disco is open from 11am-6pm Mondays to Saturday, and 11am-5pm on Sundays. Please note we are closed on Christmas Day & Boxing Day, and close at 4pm on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.
It’s time to let your hair down, get your skates on and show us some of your very best moves!

Give a Gift
Helping to bring joy to others this Christmas, our wonderful ‘Give a Gift’ campaign is back for another year.
In partnership with Heart Radio, we will be supporting two local charities for this campaign; Watford Homestart, who provide a family support service, and Watford Mencap, who care for people with learning disabilities.
We are asking customers to donate and drop off a gift at the Giving Box located outside Goldsmiths – sensory toys and arts and crafts items are wanted in particular this year.
But for those who are unable to shop for a gift or would prefer to donate in another way, you can visit the Giving Tree located on the lower mall outside M&S and Next, and donate an amount of your choice to HomeStart during November and December.
Christmas Giving Tree
Light up our Christmas Tree and donate money to a good cause. Choose which colour you would like our Christmas Tree to be , pop your donation in and watch it light up. You can find the tree on the lower mall near M&S and Next. This year all donations will be going to Home Start Watford.
Charity Gift Wrap
Every day in December a different charity will take over the charity gift wrap desk, located by the staircase outside M&S on the lower mall. Come along and get your Christmas presents beautifully gift wrapped, whilst supporting a great cause!
