Half-term fun at Highcross!

This half-term we have some exciting activities to keep the kids entertained at Highcross…

Step up to the Joke Spot
The UK Kids Comedy Festival Joke Spot is coming to Highcross Leicester on 21st & 22nd February. Join us from 11am – 3pm each day to give your child the chance to get on stage and share their jokes for all to enjoy. Click here to find out more and for the chance to be in a Leicester Comedy Festival video production. 

Break time
After a few laughs, take a break at Muffin Break. From the 15th – 24th February, guests with the Highcross PLUS app will receive a free cookie* for their little monster to enjoy when you purchase a large hot drink. Or treat the family to lunch. They have a fantastic range of light bites to hot meals to satisfy the taste buds, freshly made every day.

Pop-Up Museum
Leicester Museums will be bringing their fantastic collections and activities for another special #popupmuseum from 19th-22nd February at Highcross. Find out what free activities they have in store here.

Competition Time!
To celebrate half-term Skechers are giving you the chance to WIN Skechers for the family, exclusively on the Highcross PLUS app. T&Cs apply.

Movie Magic
The movies is a must this half term with so many blockbusters bouncing onto the big screen at Showcase Cinema de Lux. Our top picks include The Lego Movie 2 (out 8th February), Instant Family (out 14th February) and The Kids Who Would Be King (out 15th February). Best of all for a limited time, purchase a family ticket at the Box Office & receive free parking at Highcross. Click here to find out more.

Schools Out, Ramen’s In
The kids menu at wagamama is full of fresh and healthy mini versions of all your favourite dishes, plus they have colouring placemats (for the big kids too) to keep everyone entertained. Colouring with your family this half-term is a great way to spend time together and practice a little mindfulness. 

Rock On
If your kids are little thrill-seekers and prefer something a little more active, bring them to Social Climbing. They run a kid’s club every Saturday for over 5s, led by one of their awesome instructors. Or just rock up for some family bouldering fun at a time that suits you. Please note children must be aged 5 or over and supervised at all times. For more information or to book a session click here.

Quiet Hour
If you or your children would prefer to explore Highcross at a quieter time with less crowds, then join us on Saturdays from 9am-10am for a more comfortable shopping experience during our Quiet Hour.

Finally, we have a fantastic selection of shops and restaurants at Highcross and if that’s not enough check out our family friendly page to help plan your visit in advance. We’ve got loads of things to make life for you a little bit easier, including our super cute family room.
