First Sunday at Victoria Yards

Sunday Oct 1 10:30–16:00 …       16 Viljoen St, Lorentzville
Always a fun event, First Sunday at Victoria Yards is an opportunity to explore the beautiful urban gardens, creative and maker spaces, and artist studios at this complex of formerly light industrial buildings on the east side of the City Centre. 

Located opposite the headquarters of South Africa's most famous chicken brand Nando's, in the gritty suburb of Lorentzville, Victoria Yards, with its community ethos and bountiful gardens, provides a delightful respite from the city that surrounds it. 

This is a highly recommended family outing, a day filled with art, food, fashion, music and culture. On First Sunday at Victoria Yards, resident artists open their studio doors to the public, presenting an opportunity to meet the artists and get a look behind the scenes of their creative process. Among those you should look out for are prominent artists Stompie Daniel Selibe, James Delaney and Hannelie Coetzee. 

As well as artists' studios, you can also explore fashion studios, furniture design workshops and some incredible African craft and design shops that are keeping traditional African artisanal pottery, wood carving and bead work skills alive. There's also a car boot sale-style market with an eclectic range of stalls, plus plenty of food and beverages available, including the excellent Foakes Bakery and Coffee Roastery and Joburg's best fish and chips The Fish and Chip Shop.

Shop unique handmade crafts, vintage and thrifted clothing and more.
