We first did virtual reality where you make a virtual 3 dimensional world using an app called unity. Unity lets you create your very own world without designing the structures. I hated get confused when I... More

Scored some free tickets to a movie, incredible to think sitting in deck chairs while the others lay in bean bags, eating popcorn for breakfast, how incredible is that. Thank you Capital E, you have amazing events and we are very grateful that you do.

Great fun to do a live broadcast with a Year Six class. They had an absolute blast and got a feel for how these things work and how much goes into every minute of a broadcast. End results published on YouTube - a great experience.

Awful!! This place is central down-town and is Grotty with a capital G. Toilets are old and run down. The baby change room is shocking, when do the cleaners visit this place, dirty, old and nothing to do!! A complete waste of space!

They put on a lot of activities and free events for kids, which is great. The space always feels a bit soulless to me, a bit like a community hall.
