Holiday Fun at Emperors Palace
If you are a parent with a child at school you will be well aware of the long school holiday that has been set during June and July. You may be panicking slightly about how you will keep your kids entertained, because inevitably you will hear the words “I’m bored” during this time.
If the World Cup is not your child’s thing and you would like a safe and fun environment for them, then Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, Gauteng has come up with a few options. They have a super childcare facility, Jupiter’s, which is both run and managed by qualified and experienced childminders. They provide a safe, fun and stimulating environment for young children. Your child can be creative in the art room or get the creative juices flowing in the play room or discover new things in the edutainment room. Teens are not forgotten at Emperors Palace and they can play arcade games at the Magic Company with some of the latest video and arcade games. Perhaps they can even challenge Mom and Dad to a round or two?
One of the largest cinema complexes is housed at Emperors Palace with seating for over 500 people. With six movie theatres at Nu Metro, including a 3D cinema and two modern digital cinemas you can take the family to watch the latest movies and enjoy the experience as a family. And you can grab a bite to eat afterwards at one of the many food outlets and restaurants.
If you feel like relaxing for a few hours and watching a really fantastic show then the internationally acclaimed, local production of African Footprint fits the bill. The Theatre of Marcellus comes alive from 27 May to 20 June and as this year marks the 10th anniversary of the production you can be assured a rip roaring show. With song and dance telling the story of South Africa through Kwela, tap, contemporary ballet, African, gumboot, hip hop and Pantsula dance this is a show for the whole family.
A new show that will create magic for younger children is Fairy Dust performed by illusionist Vicus Cruywagen. Children with vivid imaginations will be transported into a world of mystery, magic and illusion – they will even be given the opportunity to participate in the show. The show runs from 11 June to 11 July on Wednesdays to Sundays at the 64 @ The Palace.
Tickets for both shows can be purchased from Computicket or directly from the Emperors Palace Box Office (telephone +27 (0)11 928-1297). Come and find entertainment of a wide variety and a fun filled experience for the whole family. Don’t let these long holidays become a drag, who knows you might feel like you’re on school holiday too!
