Brrr - Winter's Here!

Date: Friday, 21 June 2019 at 14:30 - 16:30

Let's get creative this winter and craft the cold away at this amazing event. Bring the kids and whole family or even maybe your friends who are into crafts. Those hands won't be freezing because there is plenty to do around the city. The Brr - Winter's event is just something all of us should attend. See you there!

Take To The Avalanche Slope

For skiing, bum-boarding, snowboarding and tubing, minus the freezing temperatures and slushy snow, make sure you head to Avalanche, situated at Cedar Square in Fourways. Visitors of all ages will have a blast sliding down their 65m ski slope, and you can even take a few skiing or snowboarding lessons if you're planning a visit to the Alps anytime soon. Avalanche is open every day from 08:30 until late and sometimes hosts special events in the evenings. The facility also offers a kids' jungle gym and activity centre, a restaurant filled with snacks and good food and expert ski instructors. Call ahead to find out about availability, specials, events and more.

Visit The Ice Rink!

Winter activities are not complete without a visit to an ice rink. While there are rinks all over the city, the most popular one in Joburg has to be the Northgate Ice Rink. Plus, they're offering a winter holiday club for the kids during the winter school holidays, as well as half-price Tuesday nights, Family Day Sundays and more. Keep an eye out on their Facebook page for upcoming events, specials and more.

Take Skiing Lessons @ The Ski Deck

You don't need snow to learn how to ski, bum-board or snowboard – all you need are experienced instructors, 20-40m of ski slope, patience and the Ski Deck in Ferndale. They've been around for years and offer the opportunity for all ages to learn how to ski. Choose from casual bum-boarding from R100* per person (two-hour session), skiing lessons from R1 140* per person (three lessons) or lessons with their fully computerised ski and snowboard simulator, The Sky Tek® Power Carver (from R2 450* for six lessons, by appointment only).

Enjoy Sweet Sounds This Winter Season

Date: Wednesday, 12 June 2019 - Thursday, 13 June 2019

When is it ever a bad idea to enjoy amazing classical musical sounds? Never, right! And we think is exactly what you will enjoy this winter, warming up your soul with incredible music. Equally at home in the opera pit, Moody began his career as apprentice conductor for the Landestheater Opera in Linza, Austria. So you know your ears are in safe hands, because violinist Ye-Eun Choi is defined by her dynamic sound, rich with vibrant timbre and sensitive nuance. Her colourful, expressive lyricism and virtuosity has earned her acclaim for her engagements as both a soloist and a chamber musician.

Enjoy Sweet Sounds This Winter Season

Warm Up by the Fire at Churchills Bar

When we think of a snowy winter, we think of stepping into a British pub, grabbing a pint, heading to the fireplace and warming up after being out in the cold a tad too long. If that's also your vibe, Churchills Bar at Melrose Arch is just the place to experience it without spending a fortune on a ticket to London. Just imagine sinking onto one of their stuffed leather sofas, warming yourself by the fire with a whisky in your right hand and a cigar in your left. Sounds about right! They have a varied list of cognacs and cigars for you to choose from and, as for food, they do a scrumptious fish and chips.

Beat The Cold This Winter

We thought let's just let you in on a secret on how to keep warm this winter. We all want be warm this winter especially when we decide to go out and explore amazing places to have dinner at. This time around there is no way winter is going to hold us back from doing amazing activities in the city. So we've compiled a list of Top Restaurants With Fireplaces In Joburg, check it out!

I know people have done it so many times but I am pretty sure there are still people like me who have not been ice skating before.  I decided that there was no time like the present to give ice-skating a try as one of my #NoRegrets2018 adventures!

Ice Skating

I fell a couple of times but I pulled through people! I am always up for a challenge, and I am always game when I have to do something that involves wearing warm clothes. I am not like Elsa from Frozen, the cold bothers me quite a lot. To be perfectly honest - I wore a fur coat!

I went to the Northgate Ice Rink, which is an indoor arena that offers a wide variety of fun. Upon entering, the staff were very friendly and helped to calm my nerves. The Northgate Ice Rink is situated at Northgate Shopping Centre in North Riding. I was like a child in a candy store, it was just thrilling and an amazing experience. The best part was that there was a kiosk for refreshments - I am always happy when there is food involved. I was also impressed with the prices - R 75 per person and skate hire is R 35 per person. So, you see it was worthwhile, I went home a bit sore, but that is entirely my fault, because I am VERY unfit.

The Ice Rink Northgate

There you have it people. Take it from me - I tried it, I did it, and I (sort of) conquered it. So, if you haven't tried it don't be afraid to do it!A lso be sure to keep and eye on their Facebook page for details of upcoming events.

The Ice Rink at Northgate is where all the cool kids hang out when school's out. Why not grab your blazer and comfy pants and head to the rink for some ice carving sessions. The Rink also offers boot hire for those who don't have their own skates. This makes for an awesome birthday party and a great way to spend time with the family.

Dig out your old skates out from their hiding place and get retro at the Rolling Cherry Roller Rink in Maboneng! This roller rink offers a great venue to hang out with friends, skate safely and have a lot of fun at the same time.

Roller skating is trending yet again, and finally we have a funky and retro roller rink of our own in the city! Both young and old will have a blast (and a few laughs) skating around the Rolling Cherry Roller Rink. And, to add to the fun, there is also a karaoke room perfect for those you want to show off their singing skills. When you’re feeling a little peckish or need to grab a drink to quench your thirst from all the exercise and fun, there is an on-site eatery available to help keep your energy levels up during your three-hour skating session.
