Stories around the fire

On the last Thursday of every month, Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers hosts a storytelling evening around a massive bonfire … the traditional African way … and it’s a truly magical experience (especially in the depth of winter). With an exciting new theme every month (think youth, education, freedom or tradition) the storytelling evenings regularly attract well-known activists from all over the continent who share their stories of struggle and liberation. Entry is free. May 31. 10823A Pooe Street, Orlando, West Soweto. Details: www.sowetobackpackers.com
