We can’t wait to try out Gateway’s newest, most exciting fun zone! Your mind is sure to be blown by the World of Illusions – an immersive, interactive experience that will have you and your family snapping pics and scratching your heads! Is it really possible to change your size by walking across a room, be split into an infinite number of reflections, stand on the ceiling, defy gravity, or be taller than your 6ft dad? Maybe it is! Definitely worth a visit this month, this meticulously produced installation of six ‘rooms’ features classic optical illusions which appear to alter reality in ways that simply cannot be true. Entrance is free, kids are welcome and don’t forget to take your phone along to take lots of pics! Situated on the cinema level, the World of Illusions opens on 28 May during trading hours.

It may sound like a strange day to celebrate, but when you love a good G&T as much as we do, the humble cucumber needs to be honoured! This year, in honour of world cucumber day (yes, it’s a thing) Hendrick’s Gin have partnered with three venues in South Africa (14 on Chartwell in Umhlanga being one of them) to host three of its grand Cucumber Chillers (grandiose Victorian greenhouse-styled chillers that keep the beloved garnish at the absolute perfect temperature) and they will also have a selection of Hendrik’s Gin cocktails on offer until 14 June.
