Market@theSheds goes Cool Capital!

Market@theSheds will be celebrating Pretoria’s own Cool Capital Arts Biennale this month. Artists and designers from around the city are invited to showcase their work.

Market@theSheds always offers a variety of local art, fashion, design, mouth-watering food, craft beers, wine, live music and most of all, a wonderful vibe. A great way to usher in Spring. The market is on from 11am to 6pm and entrance is R30 before 1pm and R50 thereafter.  012central is where all the magic happens. It is located near the State Theatre and SA Reserve Bank and there is ample safe parking nearby.

On the 24th Cool Capital which is, a platform for creatives and also an initiative that promotes an appreciation for the arts amongst the public, will be at Market@theSheds. This initiative encourages citizens to take charge, improve their environments and have fun through creative interventions. Bi-annually, a series of creative events and projects are organised under the umbrella of Cool Capital to celebrate Pretoria. The Market will be surely colourful as artist will be showing off their work celebrating both their arts and their Capital city.

It is also Heritage Day, which is all about colours, cultures and the celebration of our country’s diversity. Why not dress the part! Come over in something cool, colourful and cultural.

The market is famous for its laid back, jazzy and Afro-rock live performances.  This month’s market performance will just be as exciting. Watch the space as the bands will be announced shortly.
