Sandton Central Events for November!
There are a lot of exciting events happening in the Sandton District during November! First and foremost, we’d like to mention:

HOTFM Telethon at Sandton City – 15 November
Join in the fun for this telephon fundraising event at Sandton City!
Discovery 947 Ride Joburg – 17 November
This magnificent cycling event will be taking place on Sunday 17 November 2019. Now in its 23rd year, the iconic, annual event is the one day that cyclists get to own the streets of Johannesburg. As such, if you’re not one of the many excited cyclists taking to Joburg’s roads, you need to know that certain streets will be closed at certain times. You’ll be affected in terms of how to go about your day. We do have the map for you here which will indicate which roads will be closed and at what times. We advise residents and visitors to our district to take heed and plan accordingly.
If you are taking part in the Ride, we wish you well for the day and hope you enjoy owning the roads! It will be a fun outing for all concerned.
JHB Film Festival at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square – 19 – 24 November
The Joburg Film Festival and the Multichoice Group have collabotated to treat visitors and residents of Sandton Central to some of the finest in filmmaking at the Auto & General Theare. It’s about having an independent platform to not only showcase Africa’s talented stars and directors, but those from over 16 countries in the world.
If you have a taste for the more meaningful, inspired, and rich sort of movie, especially in this age of eplosions and overused CGI, then this festival is for you. It’s about the storytelling, not the big, overbudget action sequences. Movies you’ll genuinely feel and experience…
Still, it will feature the red carpet treatment and you may even rub shoulders with celebrities.
Gamers Expo at Sandton City – 21 – 24 November
Come and be switched on, sort of literally, by the Gamers Expo, as they push your buttons for prizes that include a 1st prize worth R25 000. It’s about the tech, it’s about the games, it’s about having fun no matter your age. Powered by BT Games, purveyors of some of the funnest, most exciting computer and console entertainment on the market. If you’re a gamer, you won’t want to miss out.
Happy Hour at Skye Bar – Throughout November
In case you weren’t aware of it, Skye Bar has a happy hour from 5pm to 6pm every weekday. And it’s perfect for Sundowners with a beautiful view of the district. The deal? You buy a drink and you’ll get another for free. This includes all beers, local spirits, and ciders. Not to worry if you’re driving or a teetotaller. The special applies to soft drinks too!
Come and enjoy one of South Africa’s most luxurious and elegant bars at the Holiday Inn, 9th Floor, with your friends and colleagues after a hard day’s work driving our economy. It’s at 132 Rivonia Road. Cheers!
Barre at The Maslow Hotel – 24 November
For those who’ve never heard of barre, it’s the ultimate fitness workout – combining ballet with Pilates and yoga. It’s a fun and great way to get fit – and you’ll be doing it at the beautiful Maslow Hotel! Which means that afterwards, you can enjoy an inclusive brunch by the poolside.
The Maslow, of course, is one of Sandton Central’s most esteemed business hotels, but the business for the day will only be toning and honing that body!
For the Early Bird: R350 per person
Be a barre beauty and get fit the fun way.
Black Friday – 29 November
This is one event you definitely don’t want to miss out on! It’s the biggest sale of the year and you can bet many of our retailers in Sandton City and Nelson Mandela will be offering you great savings on “have-to-have” items. Ranging from fashion, to footwear, to electronics, and everything in-between, this is one Friday you’ll want to book in leave with the office now!
Or at least, “have a runny stomach”. At least it’s partly true. You’ll be running all over the place to take advantage of the specials on offer. Though this could “backfire”, because you might run into your manager here too! Now that could get awkward.

Women are the backbone of our society. Join the celebration of women from all communities in a fun run from Sandton City, at our district on Saturday 30 November.
