No family outing is complete without food, and thankfully, we’ve got a world of different options that are just perfect for an afternoon or evening out with your brood. The secret to keeping everyone happy? Choose a venue with a broad range of family-friendly options on the mean or head to the Food Court, where everyone can take their pick from their favourite vendor.

Not only are you guaranteed loads of fun, parents can get involved and the kids will have a ball – this is what they live for!

What’s school holidays without a trip to the cinema? 

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably given your streaming services a really good nudge this year. With countless titles on offer to view in the comfort of your own home, it might seem like you’ve got it all sorted, but when it comes down to it there really is nothing like a visit to your favourite cinema. 

Maybe it’s those big comfy chairs, maybe it’s the life-like boom of the surround sound, maybe it’s the alluring and ever-present aroma of buttery popcorn… whatever it is, there’s a definite air of excitement whenever you enter a real-deal cinema – and that’s all before the previews have even started. 



Since re-opening after Covid-19 shutdowns, cinemas are operating a little differently in order to keep everyone safe and healthy. Along with hand sanitising stations and increased cleaning frequency, cinemas have introduced social distancing measures in place in all communal areas, especially important when queueing and exiting. 

Even better, a new mobile app means you can not only pre-purchase tickets, but you can order your favourite candy bar snacks and check into your session straight from your mobile, too. While seated, you’ll notice space between yourself and other groups, with safe gaps allocated at the time of booking.
