Johannesburg is Africa’s economic brain, Newtown is its creative heart...
All your entertainment needs are right here in the artistic core of Jozi. Our Newtown Campus is located in the metropolitan areas now well-known for its cultural contributions to the struggle. Cultural diversity and innovative expression will surround you if you make the largest city in Africa your new home!
Newtown began its transformation towards cultural assimilation during the 1970s when the Market Theatre “The Theatre of the Struggle” was established. Not only is this building rich in history but also provides top entertainment in the form of poetry, plays, dance and music. And don’t forget to check out the restaurants.
Aside from the Market Theatre, Newtown also boasts Museum Africa, clubs, the internationally recognized Drum Café and an excuse to have a drink while you learn at the SAB World of Beer.
The pace is quick here; the business and economic centre of South Africa which itself provides 16% of the GDP. Skyscrapers stand sentinel over this urban jungle, Africa’s “Place of Gold”.
Joburg is a melting pot of all tastes and interests, with Alexandra, Soweto, Gold Reef City and Carnival City & Entertainment World all in the near vicinity. Simply put, this is a beehive of activity.
Joburg is famously the home of Africa’s top stadium, Soccer City, now host to various sport events and concerts. Another spin-off from the world’s biggest sporting event, was the arrival of the Gautrain, which now ensures quick and comfortable transport between Jozi, Pretoria and O.R. Tambo International Airport.
This is indeed the cradle of (hu)mankind…and it hasn’t stopped rocking…
