Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert Series – Outdoor picnic and concerts throughout the summer months.
During the summer months there are outdoor concerts held every Sunday at Kirstenbosch botanical gardens. Get your tickets and book a picnic-basket online (picnics need to be booked at least 5 days in advance) or bring your own choice of goodies and blankets. Find a spot on the grass covered slope and just relax, listening to music in this spectacular venue, right in the botanical garden with the Table Mountain towering above. This is the perfect Sunday evening activity!
The venue opens at about 4pm and the concerts usually starts around 5-6pm. Due to sound regulations the concerts end at 7pm and you’ll be out before dark.
Galileo outdoor cinema
Outdoor cinema during summer months
Varying venues throughout the area around Cape Town showing a big variety of movies, mostly slightly older ones. The movie starts when the sun has set, so the starting time varies slightly. Buy a comfort package and get seating, blankets and maybe a pre packed picnic for a romantic and different cinema experience. You can buy food, drinks and snacks at the venue and bring extra clothing since it can get chilly at night.
First Thursdays – Art walk in the city!
On the first Thursday of every month art galleries in the city stay open longer to enable more accessible art and a more buzzing city.
The First Thursdays art walk starts at 5pm and most of the galleries stay open until 9pm (some close at 8pm). The city centre is buzzing these nights and a lot of people are out drinking and socialising.
