Gauteng Opera celebrates Mother’s Day at 1 Fox

May 2nd 2018
Gauteng Opera at 1 Fox Street

Arts, crafts, ample parking, music and great food, that is what the Sheds at 1Fox stand for and Gauteng Opera has been part of the Sheds since 2014 when they presented a Christmas Concert.

They are now almost part of the family and regularly performs on a Sunday at the Sheds.  This time is no different, so bring the whole family and come and enjoy a day out at the Market Shed @ 1Fox and explore the many food stalls, arts & crafts stands and the Mad Giant brewery.  At 13:00, Gauteng Opera will entertain you with beautiful music and singing of the highest quality to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Gauteng Opera is an all-round performing arts and entertainment company focussing on opera related productions, concerts and events.  With the slogan “Opera for Everyone”, Gauteng Opera aims to expose opera to varied audiences with different opera offerings. Driven by excellence in vocal performance and theatre, Gauteng Opera prides itself in being one of the foremost nurturers of experts and proponents for quality vocal performance and theatre practitioners.

1 Fox Precinct was part one of the first mining camps that sprung up at the time of the discovery of gold in the 1880s. The area became the centre of the administration, maintenance and storage of trams and buses during the rapid growth of Johannesburg’s transport sector in the first half of the 20th century. Today, this precinct has been transformed into a dynamic cultural hub.

The area began to grow between 1906 and 1907, when sheds for the housing and servicing of the first electric trams were built. The three power stations were built here to meet the electricity needs of a modern transport system and the rapidly growing city. The M1 freeway constructed between the 1960s and 80s can be seen above the bustle of 1 Fox. Today it houses a number of dynamic businesses: Good Luck Bar & Restaurant, Fox Junction Event Venue, Mad Giant Craft Brewery and the Food Market Shed.
