Whats on this Weekend for the Family

I know this isn’t “Kid Friendly” per say, but its beneficial to the tormenting of kids as they get older. The Photo & Film Expo is on at the TicketPro Dome.

Tickets are available at Webtickets, and workshops are offered on a first arrival basis, get to www.photofilmexpo.com for more details.


The Field and Study Park, in the heart of Sandton, is the ideal venue for this family-orientated food and craft market.
