Slingby's in Rundle Mall

After some school holiday fun with the kids?

You're invited to participate in the Slingsby's Rundle Mall Activation in association with their production of 'Emil and the Detectives' starting on Wednesday 19 July on Level 5 of The Myer Centre.

There will be two charismatic hosts each each day enlisting walk-up participants as detectives with an invitation to try their hand at police sketching and draw someone that's being described to them by a witness (friend or family member).

Without showing the final sketch to the witness they are invited into the composition chamber and through some magic their drawing is brought to life for further identification!

What: Slingsby's Rundle Mall Activation

When: Monday 10 July to Friday 21 July

Time: Daily from 12 noon to 2 pm

*Suitable for ages 8+

'Emil and the Detectives'

Never underestimate the determination of a child!

Young Emil catches a train to visit family in the big city. Something valuable is stolen.

But the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around.

Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the true criminal?
