Your Weekly Joburg Guide 
Emperors Palace

Other than all the catchy and oh-so-cheerful carols, we have another song stuck in our heads - “The Final Countdown” by Europe! In just a few short days, we’ll be saying adios to our coworkers and hectic schedules and saying hello to relaxation, loads of festive feasting and summer fun (if the rain clears anytime soon). Yay for the holidays.

If you’re looking to do the latter, Big Concerts has two killer acts heading to our way - Collective Soul with special guests, Lifehouse in February and The Script in May. Get your tickets now.


Speaking of excitement, the school holidays are here too and surely you need ideas as to how you’re going to keep your little ones busy. We all dread those three little words - “Mom, I’m bored”. Here, we have a few holiday programmes and activities to keep your angels out of mischief.  You’ll thank us later.

And to top off your holiday season, we have drool worthy festive recipes from Le Creuset that you need to try. Think moreish gingerbread men for the kids, a frozen ice-cream summer Fruit Cake to wow your Christmas lunch guests, or the perfect roast turkey with sticky plums. Sounds divine, right? Check out the recipes here.


And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:


Get into the holiday spirit at Arts on Main’s Festive Night Market this Thursday evening. There will be good food, cocktails, design goodies and music.

This Friday, Wine Not will be hosting a festive get-together complete with delicious treats and fine wine. Tickets will be available at the door.


The holidays are all about having fun with your loved ones, which is why The 12 Pubs of Xmas this Saturday is a must.

And since summer is in full swing, why not get away from the hustle and bustle of the city with It’s Personal this Saturday? The headliner is GoldFish.
And if you haven’t gone caroling yet, you’re in luck as Stonehaven’s Carols by Candlelight is on this Sunday.

See you all next week for our last 2017 edition
