School holidays are here and the DStv Kids’ Xtravanaza brings your children’s favourite television characters to life at Vodacom World in Midrand from 28 June to 6 July.

Young children and tweens will be treated to regular 30-minute live shows featuring Mister Maker and Ben 10 from DStv.

Ben 10

Ben 10, the popular character from Ben 10 Omniverse on Cartoon Network (DStv channel 301), appears in the multimedia stage show Top Secret Plumbers’ Academy from 28 June to 1 July. At four live shows each day – at 9:30, 12:30, 15:30 and 18:30 – kids can enjoy the exploits of this brave cartoon hero alongside several other cool characters, performing amazing acrobatic stunts as they take on aliens. The show is recommended for children aged four to 12.

Mister Maker

Having fun creatively is the name of the game with Mister Maker from CBeebies (DStv channel 306), who performs four live 30-minute stage shows daily from 2 to 5 July (at 9:30, 12:30, 15:30 and 18:30) and three shows on the final day of the DStv Kids’ Xtravaganza (at 9:30, 12:30 and 15:30). CBeebies favourite making-man Mister Maker is a global phenomenon with a dedicated following of mini makers. Fun, inspirational and very good with his hands, Mister Maker finds bright ideas for art from everything around him, making objects and pictures magically come to life. Mister Maker proves that anyone can be creative by demonstrating how easy and satisfying it is to have hands-on, artistic fun.
