I was greeted by a pleasantly lit, run-down warehouse. It’s known as Mzansi Fela Theatre on Church/Helen Joseph Street. There were food stalls, trinkets on sale and carefully arranged pillows and blankets on the floor for a second event that ran directly after the Capital Urban Market, Cinema about the city screened in a city. There was just such a great atmosphere.
My evening was made when I had a Peach Mojito from the bar and lemon sorbet from Whisk Away and it wasn’t ruined when I discovered mustard in my boerewors roll (I despise mustard with a passion that gets my heart beating faster). Jacques and I got to see local bands playing and Jacques occasionally sang along to Tamara Tree and Hey! River while they were on the acoustic stage.
Overall, it was a lovely evening and look out for the next Capital Urban Market because I’ll be there. Pretoria’s doing great things and you should get involved.
