Get the kids cooking at Mini Makers

The Enchanted Kitchen is returning to Makers Landing these winter holidays for a magical cooking and baking experience with The Charming Chef and My Hungry Husband. At the Mini Makers Winter Edition, kids aged 5 to 12 can spend the morning making new friends, exploring the kitchen and learning how to make two dishes.

These fun classes, which run until 16 July 2023 and cost R350 per day, will focus on themes such as ‘Rainbow Foods’, ‘Flavours of South Africa’ and ‘Science and Baking’. Check out the full programme and book tickets here.

Volunteer for Mandela Day

Ladles of Love, one of South Africa’s biggest community food non-profits, is gearing up to achieve the highest number of volunteers doing 67 minutes to make items that help nourish, nurture and grow young children.

Have an indoor adventure at PlayDate Superpark

If you thought fun was out of the question for your kids during miserable weather, think again! PlayDate SuperPark, located in The Watershed at the V&A Waterfront, is an indoor extreme activity play park that boasts a maze, a high-line course, air hockey, mini golf, target throwing, a halfpipe, a zipline and more. The kids can literally spend the day exploring while you grab a tasty meal or a coffee at the on-site café.

 Grab a meal at a discount with Neighbourfood

Various restaurants across the precinct have joined in the spirit of community and are offering dining discounts to customers during the winter months. Check out all the Neighbourfood specials here.

Catch a movie at SterKinekor

There’s nothing better than cosying up with popcorn and watching a movie while it’s raining outside – especially when it’s the latest blockbuster in a state-of-the-art cinema. Catch movies like Oppenheimer, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny and Mission Impossible at the V&A Waterfront’s immersive IMAX cinema, or watch Pixar’s latest film, Elemental, at the dedicated Kids Theatre.

 Get ready for the Netball World Cup

The world’s biggest netball tournament is heading to Cape Town, where 16 countries (including South Africa) will battle it out to win the sport’s most prestigious title between 28 July and 6 August 2023.

Ahead of the big event, the Netball World Cup trophy will be touring the country – and it will be making a stop in our neighbourhood! If you’re a fan of netball, head to the V&A Waterfront Amphitheatre Stage on Sunday 9 July 2023 between 11h00 and 14h00 to see the trophy in person and take a picture.

Eat and dance the night away at Night Feast

 Night Feast takes the V&A Waterfront’s famous Feastival and expands it across the entire V&A precinct. Makers Landing, the Silo District, the Amphitheatre Stage and the Two Oceans Aquarium come alive on the last Friday of the winter months with a celebration of food, culture and music.
