Cape Town - Thursday, 7 January, will mark the first First Thursday of 2016, an event which promises to make the city bowls of Cape Town and Johannesburg come alive in a festive buzz. 

First Thursdays is a public event which is free to attend. During the event, art galleries and cultural events around Cape Town and Johannesburg's central city stay open until 21:00 or later on the first Thursday of every month, allowing anyone to explore the city on foot and experience the cultural wealth this city has to offer.

There is no tour, schedule, or guided walk; that is up to you. The First Thursday movement simply hands you a map and lets you figure out what to see and where to go by highlighting what is happening.
