What is First Thursdays?
The First Thursdays event seeks to highlight the best art, culture, restaurants and nightlife that Braamfontein has to offer. It takes place on, you guessed it, the first Thursday of every month and extends across the city, so you can plan a night out on the town that you won’t be quick to forget. The best news? Most First Thursdays recommendations are free to attend!
