Market@theSheds celebrates Africa Day on 26 May

Come Play at Market@theSheds this Saturday! We’re planning a roaring Africa Day in the heart of the city with The Muffinz Music as the main attraction!

Africa Day will be celebrated all over the world – and the Capital of South Africa will be no exception. Pretoria’s popular inner-city market will host this beautiful occasion at its monthly event on 26 May, providing a space where the rich traditions, tastes, arts, music, and cultures of Africa can be showcased and celebrated. More importantly, where the message of peace, harmony, and unity can be experienced in an environment of diversity and social cohesion.

The Muffinz Music are winners of numerous South African awards who have received a standing ovation at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, toured Norway and performed at the Doha International Jazz Festival. The guys have also appeared on stages in Mozambique, Swaziland, Algeria and the DRC with their highlight, the chance to perform at the Apollo Theatre in New York in October 2014. The show was sold out. Need we say more..

The best of local artists will share the stage. Lynol Siwela is an incredible performer with a vast profile of original songs and renditions of music from Africa and around the world, inspired by Oliver Mtukudzi, Ringo Madlingozi and Jabu Kangile. His band is taking Gauteng by storm and guarantees to leave the crowd in a happy mood.

Zebra band: Is it black with white stripes? Or is it white with black stripes?

Is it music with comedy? Or comedy with music? Let’s just call it entertainment!

Zebra has opened for Jack Parow, PHfat, Locnville & Beatenburg.

 

Magatsela More is a super talented Afro-jazz artist who is quickly becoming known as one of the new kids on the block. He is inspired by artists such as Sello Galane, Selaelo Selota and Hugh Masekela.

Shava Afrika’s music is poetic and spiritual and fuses jazz, reggae, contemporary pop and traditional rhythmic African sounds. Shava is a five-piece band with members coming together from Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique. And then there is the beautiful Mapula Mahlo, an energetic, enthusiastic and creative singer strutting her stuff in jazzy, soulful style.

Market @ the Sheds is a monthly gathering spot where people from all walks of life can experience Art, Food and Music in the true colours of the capital! Local fashionistas, art lovers, foodies, tourists, trendsetters and socialites of all ages find themselves indulging in delicious street foods and craft cocktails, whilst collectible designer goods and fashion spread curiosity, and the smell of hand-made leather adds to the spice of it all!

Look forward to a vibrant and colourful day in Pretoria CBD. 🙂

 

The Market is an initiative of the Capital Collective, an NPC driving inner city rejuvenation projects in the Pretoria CBD.

And rightfully so: their sound is fun and authentic, with cheerful, catchy melodies and clever lyrics that stick in your mind… and make you want to dance.

A Market Awakes Snor City

Join Market@theSheds this Saturday, 28 October for its 3rd Birthday Celebration. Discover the True Colours of the Capital!

This milestone celebrates the change that Market@theSheds, its founders and ever-growing family of designers, fashionistas, art- and food vendors has brought to the CBD of Pretoria.

Their story is nothing short of inspirational – and proof of how collective action and persistence can overcome the obstacles of current city challenges.
What started as a journey to find the perfect city venue for a corporate function in 2013, marked the beginning of a quiet metamorphosis of the CBD of Pretoria. Traditionally the shopping and trading hub of a nation, the inner city was steadily running empty – and running down.

It was time to wake up the gentle sleeping giant, to cause a stir, to create the change from the ground-up. Something needed to happen that could tip the scales to creating a rejuvenation success story in the capital’s CBD.

A love for the city, passion for its potential and an abundance of creativity became the cornerstones of a subcultural movement of residents who wanted to roll up their sleeves and get actively involved in redefining the personality of a city they loved dearly.

The market was launched in October 2014 as the first project of the Capital Collective, a non-profit public- and community driven initiative, focused on regeneration projects and events in the Pretoria CBD. Market@theSheds collaborates with Cityproperty and the City of Tshwane, who has commended the initiative as one of the successful regeneration projects in the CBD.

Market@theSheds is a monthly mix of market and festival, providing a space where local art, music, fashion and design can develop and flourish. It is not just a quick-win, once-off event. From its conceptualisation, it focused on sustainability and long-term solutions, driving economic-, art- and culture development, social cohesion and tourism.

It usually happens every last Saturday of the month at 012central, Cityproperty’s trendy multi-space precinct development near the State Theatre. Dates sometimes vary according to long weekends and holidays.

After the Birthday celebration this Saturday (28 October), the market will be popping-up on Brooklyn Mall’s rooftop on the 25th of November and the last market of the year will take the form of an Afro-Brazilian Festival on 2 December. This event will be co-hosted with the Embassy of Brazil.

The market is loved by a wide variety of visitors of all ages and has a laid-back, cosmopolitan feel. It attracts a mix of food lovers and culinary connoisseurs, fashion and style trendsetters, arts, craft and music enthusiasts, and is rounded-off by groups of family and friends, simply out to have some good fun.

An entrance fee of R50 is payable to help fund the initiative. Children, Vespa riders and cyclists enter free. The market starts at 11:00 and finishes at 18:00.

It offers excellent facilities including:
• Free parking at 012central in Sisulu Street. (Overflow parking is available in the State Theatre.)
• Outdoor and indoor seating accommodating big groups of friends and families
• Kids entertainment area and jumping castles
• Disabled facilities
The Capital Collective team is working on various other exciting projects with the City of Tshwane and other role-players, building on the success of the Market@theSheds initiative.
