On the first Thursday of every month, Cape Town’s streets become a museum, a gallery, a shopping experience. Walk the streets and enjoy an evening of art, entertainment and culture until 9pm.

Starting off the weekend early, First Thursdays is the perfect opportunity to casually stroll through Cape Town’s city streets and soak up the finest creative talent. A selection of galleries are open till late and once you’ve seen all there is to see, lovely eateries and bars are open in the area.

An idea borrowed from the UK, First Thursdays is an exercise in infusing creativity and getting people onto the streets. A buzzing atmosphere, fresh ideas and enthused people is the perfect combination for an exciting start to the weekend.  And, you might just pick up your next masterpiece!

Keep up to date with First Thursday’s on their webpage, www.first-thursdays.co.za for details about each month’s activities and places to highlight on your map.

A highlight for tonight: Youngblood Gallery (70-72 Bree Street) will be screening the award-winning film La Vie En Rose at 8.30pm. Admission is free and seats will be on a first come first serve basis.

Some of the galleries included in First Thursdays are Worldart, Black Box Gallery, The AVA Gallery, Chandler House, Lutge Gallery, Latitude 33, Robert Sherwood Design, Brundyn + Gonsalves, EBONY, G2 Art, StateoftheART, Erdmann Contemporary, Youngblood Gallery, New Heritage Gallery, and the d’Vine art Room by Shay Davis.

ELLE DECORATION will be attending and we look forward to seeing you there!
