Whether you’re into sundowners with friends on a Friday evening, listening to the soulful sounds of Jazz music at your favorite pub or wilding out all weekend long, best believe the month of March has something to tickle everyone’s fancy. We did some digging and found so many cool events happening throughout the month that we couldn’t possibly blog about them all. The solution? WE picked our best five and these five are what we consider to be the icing on the cake for your March adventures. Here’s our Top 5 must attend affairs for this month. Our ultimate social calendar of what to get up to in and around our city.

Rhymes and Laughter

MTN’s legendary Rhymes and Laughter show touches down at the Happy Valley casino and resort. Merging hip-hop and comedy, the show is a local favorite. This edition is set to honor the greatest musicians to have ever hit the scene and will be headlined by a few locally renowned artists. Show starts at 7Pm on March 8th. Don’t be late.

Alliance Française Lunch Concert: Women’s day Edition

The seventh edition of Alliance Française de Mbabane’s lunch concerts is all about celebrating women. Perfectly set up between 1pm and 2pm, there’s no excuse to miss it. Happening on the 8th of March, the concert promises nothing but great sounds with performances by female artists, good vibes and delicious French Cuisine. Entrance is free and a little birdy happened to let us know that the concert will end with special gifts for the ladies. Jot this one own on you calendar!

Buhle Buyeza Play

Described by the media and the Eswatini theatre itself as an iconic play, Buhle Buyeza is a local production that is full of historical whimsicalness and musings. The play stars local actors and will be showing from the 21st of March to the 23rd of this  month starting at 7pm. If you have a love for curtain calls, curtsies and grand old theatres, then this is for you.

Alliance Française De Mbabane continues to breathe some French culture into our Eswatini scene. The Francophonie festival is a celebration of French culture and seeks to promote the francophone cultures’ diversity. The event is set out to be a fun-filled shindig for all ages with dance, poetry, fashion, craft stalls, music and food as a leading staple. Mark your calendar. 23rd of March.

Although out of town, this event is surely worth the drive. Closing off the month of March, the Gin fling, hosted by Ngwenya glass and headlined by Eswatini’s first ever locally crafted gin, Imbali, the event promises to be a soiree of mixology and fun. What else could possibly beat a relaxing afternoon of craft cocktails, delicious street food and live music. Entrance is free and the kids will have loads to do as well should you tag them along too. Take the MR3 Up to Ngwenya for this one and end the month of a high.
