First Thursdays returns tomorrow after 6 months absence

CAPE TOWN – Popular First Thursdays event hosted every first Thursday of the month is set to return tomorrow in Cape Town.

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of many social events, but as restrictions begin to ease, some are making their return with limited programmes and with many changes put in place to prioritise the health and safety of visitors.

First Thursdays is an event that focuses on the exhibition of art that takes place within art galleries, restaurants, bars, shops and cultural attractions opened to the public after hours and into the night time. The initiative is aimed at promoting the arts and injecting life into the urban spaces of Cape Town and Johannesburg.
