A new toy store is opening at intu Watford – and superhero Batman will be making a special appearance at this weekend’s launch.

The Entertainer is opening a branch at Watford’s indoor shopping centre this Saturday and to celebrate the new shop, LEGO’s Batman and Robin will be at the store to entertain the children during a fun-filled day of activity.

On the day, children will be able to enjoy balloon modelling, in store demos, face painting and take part in several giveaways and competitions.

The Home-Start Watford & Three Rivers charity will also be at the grand opening. They will have an opportunity to choose some toys for the young children they work with.

Home-Start delivers friendship and support to parents with young children, in the Watford, Three Rivers and Hertsmere areas, to help ensure they have the best possible start in life.

Emma Power, CEO at Home-Start Watford & Three Rivers said: “We are thrilled to be chosen by The Entertainer to take part in the grand opening. This is a unique experience and taking part in the trolley dash and receiving toys for the charity is going to make a huge difference. We are so grateful for this opportunity.”

Craig Lowe, events co-ordinator at The Entertainer added: “We are really looking forward to The Entertainer’s Grand Opening event in Watford. It’ll be great for the children to meet some of their favourite life-sized characters and have their picture taken.”

Saturday April 20 at intu Watford. From 9am-4pm. Batman and Robin will be in store from 10am.
