Your Weekly Joburg Guide 

We have amazing news - our team is being sainted! Karen, one of our readers was so excited when she received our Top 30 Ideas to Keep Kids Busy mailer, that she is recommending that our entire team be sainted immediately. Who knows, we could soon be the Patron Saints of Entertainment in Joburg. (Oh wait, don’t you have to be DEAD before you are sainted? We might not have thought this through!)

Only one more month before the world-famous and sensational magician, Dynamo takes centre stage at Time Square and wows us with his unbelievable illusions and magic. Get your tickets NOW - this is a show you don’t want to miss.

Another show we HIGHLY recommend is the phenomenal Sound of Music that is on stage at Montecasino until 29 April. Shelli NT attended the opening night on Sunday and was blown away by the world-class performances, costumes and staging. In her words, “This is the musical must-see of 2018. Don’t miss it!” You can read her review here.

How are the school holidays going? Smoothly? Or have the kids driven you mad with those dreaded three little words… “Mom, I’m bored”? We feel you, which is why our Top 30 Ideas to Keep Kids Busy mailer has been such a hit in the past week! It has everything from theatre, cooking classes and exciting day trips to scaly critters, extreme sports and lots of craft activities. Everything you need to keep them busy AND happy - problem solved.


  And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:


It’s Friday the 13th this week, which means it’s time to catch a classic horror movie at The Bioscope! Any guesses as to which movie it could be? Hint: Jason Voorhees.

Head to the not-to-be-missed Friday the 13th party at Katy’s Palace Bar. Don’t forget to dress the part - in black!


Relax, unwind, shop, indulge at the monthly Field Market in Parkmore on Saturday. There’s everything from live music and gourmet food to handcrafted items and craft drinks - highly recommended.

The legendary Carlos Santana will be performing live at the Ticketpro Dome this Saturday night! There are still tickets left, so get yours now. (We hope he plays Oye Como Va!)
If you missed the last Muddy Puppy, don’t worry, there’s another one this Sunday at Rietvlei Zoo Farm. Expect lots of mud, obstacles and LOADS of laughter.

Have a magnificent week - make the most of it!
