Waterstones in Birmingham High Street has a new look and a fantastic new children's section featuring a slide, fish tank and a craft table.

To celebrate, we're offering one lucky Mumsnetter a £100 family shopping spree.

The grand opening at Waterstones High Street bookshop in Birmingham will take place on Saturday 14th November with a special family fun day. Meet Miffy, join in the Kids Character Treasure Hunt and enjoy special performances from Equador – Bubble Wizard and entertainment from a 40 strong Rock Choir. There’ll be spot prizes for youngsters dressed as their favourite book character and face painting fun, story time and crafting sessions in the brand new children’s department throughout the day.

Closed for nine weeks during the autumn, Waterstones has invested in a comprehensive renovation of the interior and exterior of the much loved city centre bookshop. Now with six floors of books, two cafés, new furniture and a striking new shop front, the state of the art High Street bookshop is set to cement its reputation as Waterstones's flagship Midlands store.

The new Children’s Department is at the heart of the redevelopment. The huge third floor is now entirely devoted to an unrivalled range of children’s books suitable for tots to teens, with an active child-centred events programme, reading groups, regular crafting activities and parent and toddler storytime sessions. It also has new baby-change facilities.

Waterstones new Children’s Department comes with its own family-friendly 42 seat café. Serving a healthy range of Innocent drinks and child-friendly fruit snacks from Bear, the café will also offer organic Fairtrade soft drinks from Karma Cola and free babyccinos. Youngsters will also be able to enjoy yummy homemade cupcakes by Birmingham-based kitchen baker From Kimmies Kitchen and have a go at decorating their own cakes too!

Mumsnet Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield has teamed up with Waterstones Birmingham to offer a fabulous competition in which one lucky winner will receive £100 Waterstones Gift Card to enjoy a family shopping spree at the High Street bookshop.
