Cape Town is very busy and vibrant. There are some notable and worthwhile events which form part of an ongoing calendar;
First Thursdays Cape Town is a free cultural experience where art galleries and other cultural attrac-tions in and around Bree Street stay open late on the first Thursday of every month. The night is as much about experiencing art and culture as it is about exploring the city on foot. We suggest browsing the galleries from 5 to 9 pm, and then going for dinner.
