First Thursdays - Cape Town
Cape Town, South Africa
On the first Thursday of every month explore the art galleries of Cape Town until late. Museums and cultural attractions open their doors and allow visitors to spend the evening discovering the rich culture of the city.
First Thursdays started in Cape Town in 2012 with a collection of just six galleries. Now the event attracts many visitors, and there is a huge variety of galleries and events open to the public every month. Explore the central and east districts of Cape Town, and let the night dictate your itinerary. Wander the city by foot and discover hidden galleries and interesting events. Spend some time on Bree Street, which comes alive on First Thursdays with laid-back locals sipping gin and tonics on the terraces of the street's bars.
