The iconic Soweto Theatre turns 10 this year! Visit the theatre to celebrate this massive milestone. They've got an array of live entertainment on stage to commemorate the event. 

Soweto Theatre is one third of the Joburg City Theatres amalgamation. Situated in vibrant Jabulani Cultural Precinct, this stunning theatre complex has been at the heart of live entertainment in Soweto for the past decade. The history of theatre and live performance in the area extends far further back , however. The Jabulani Amphitheatre has played host to a number of musicians and theatre groups since 1952. As one of the only leisure facilities in Soweto during the apartheid years, this site has an incredible significance.

Now, 10 years on, the theatre is alive and well despite the many challenges of maintaining a live entertainment space during the global pandemic.
