Happy Leap Day! Make it Count
Thu, Feb 29, 2024

As we all know, a day like this only comes around once every four years. I would say it’s an invitation to get out of your comfort zone - discover new places, try food you’ve never had, go see a play or enjoy some fresh air with a picnic in the park. The options are many and can certainly create special memories.

My top picks this week are more on the visual arts; it’s the last weekend to check out the powerful storytelling in the play For Colored Girls at Joburg Theatre as well as the family favourite The Sound of Music at Montecasino.

Also, this weekend is the Multichoice presented Joburg Film Festival which showcases films and stories of the continent as well as from across the globe. The festival will host these screenings in multiple theatres across the city; Theatre on the Square and Artistry in Sandton, The Bioscope and Lesedi Theatre in Braamfontein area and of course selected Ster-Kinekor theatres.
