[Sponsored] Experience amazing magicians, illusionists and entertainers at Chadstone every Saturday night in April
Everyone knows that Chadstone is the place for shopping in Melbourne. The massive retail centre (the largest in the southern hemisphere) buzzes daily with fashionistas discovering the latest trends, plus Melburnians from all over town gathering to dine, drink and be entertained. And the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down – in fact, during April things will get a whole lot more magical.
Make your way to Chadstone every Saturday night in April for Magic at Twilight: an enchanting month-long evening festival bringing a bit of magic back into our lives. Chadstone will light up as top magicians, illusionists and entertainers quite literally work their magic throughout the centre’s Magic at Twilight stages and spaces.
On the bewitching line-up is Charlie Caper (a dashing magician who won the 2009 Sweden’s Got Talent competition – the first magician in the world to do so), James Galea (whose resume includes appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Today, The Late Late Show and Access Hollywood), Perth magician Pierre Ulric and magician-turned-Survivor-contestant Matt Tarrant.
Guests will also be able to gaze in awe at the acrobatic marvels of Dandy Man, whose ability to twist, flip and leap is only bested by his sense of chaotic humour. For something completely different check out Dennis Locke – an acrobat and bubble wrangler who creates giant soap bubbles and manipulates them in his mesmerising performances. There’s more entertainment to keep the mini magicians occupied too, with local performers Bunk Puppets bringing their shadow puppet wizardry to the festival.
There’s three main areas at Chadstone to check out each night of the festival, as well as extra performers roaming throughout the centre (including throughout the Dining Terrace). Keep your eyes peeled for the Mirror People, Pilgrim and Boat of Faith as you’re going between stages or getting some sneaky evening shopping in. Remember Chadstone is open until 9pm every Saturday (and 7pm on Sundays), giving you the chance to work a little fashion magic of your own. Hungry? Dining at Chadstone means you’ve access to nearly 100 different cafés and restaurants catering to every taste – might we suggest wrapping up your magical evening with a cocktail and macaron at Laudrée?
Make the most of Australia’s largest and most fashionable shopping centre – Chadstone’s Magic at Twilight festival is on every Saturday evening during April.
