In 1976 Mannie Manim and the late Barney Simon set out to convert the old  Johannesburg Indian Fruit Market, built in 1913, into a theatre. Little did they know they were building a playhouse that would become internationally known as South Africa’s “theatre of struggle.” A conviction that culture can change society keeps the Market Theatre evolving and culturally relevant to a new generation of theatre lovers and performing artists in post-apartheid South Africa.

Long Street

By day or by night, Cape Town’s Long Street is where it’s all happening. During the sunshine hours, Long Street has loads of charm with its Victorian buildings, antique stores, chic boutique hotels, friendly eateries, arts and crafts outlets and laid-back attitudes. As the sun goes down - if you’re in the mood for music, food and good times - Long Street is the only place to be. Come Friday night, the place begins to rock (and it’s not too shabby on any other nights of the week either). First it’s cocktails at any one of a number of funky cocktail bars or lounges. Then it’s dinner time – and there is something for every palate. After you’ve had your fill, it could well be time to get moving and there are a number of jazz lounges and nightclubs where you can party the night away. There are certainly no dull moments on this buzzing Cape Town street...
