It’s no mystery that Cape Town is always abuzz with events, people and all kind of life that is breathed into the space that many call home, the Mother City. It’s the city that never sleeps, making sure that it’s taking care of all your needs whether it be in entrepreneurial space of technology with a healthy ecosystem, or being the creative hub that the world knows it to be. And to ensure that the arts continue giving, and that artists too continue sharing, the city comes alive with First Thursdays.

Hosted on the first Thursday of every month, First Thursdays is a free Cape Town event (that has now also expanded to Johannesburg) that started with the intention of the fellow creative “to explore the city on foot and experience the cultural wealth this city has to offer” , and that’s exactly what the city offers with this public event.

Some of the events taking place tonight is an exhibition called Cape Town Salon – a tribute to Rose Korber at the AVA Gallery until 30 January 2016 and gastropub O’Jangles between 18h00 and 19h00 for complimentary tasting portions of their delectable beef and chicken burgers and our mouthwatering salt fried calamari they promise. A few galleries and many other events are also open.

Make sure that you grab a map at your first stop or visit the website at and don’t miss out.
