First Thursdays


First Thursdays happens again tonight, so if you live in Cape Town, don’t head home after work, rather get some friends together and tour the city!

Cape Town’s central city comes alive on the first Thursday of every month, as dozens of art galleries and stores keep their doors open until 9pm. Whether you’re an art historian or someone who has never stepped foot in a gallery, First Thursdays is an incredible way to experience the cultural wealth that this city has to offer.

Be sure to check out the highlights and the map here. You can also keep up to date via their facebook page. These are just a few of the shops that will be open this evening. I’m definitely keen to pop into Skinny laminx and see what interesting goodies Heather has brought back from her trip to Japan.

      Happy to spread the word! I think each month, more and more shops/galleries are taking part, so it is growing. I think it will be great in summer on a beautiful evening x
