30 May
Troyeville Art Tour

Troyeville was once the home of artists, architects and activists, and it’s a suburb with a rich history dating back to 1889.  Nowadays Troyeville is inhabited by residents from a wide variety of African countries, each bringing with them a distinctive flavour. Highlights of this tour include a visit to David Webster’s house, Gandhi’s house and the Troyeville House. Plus there are beautiful churches and other buildings from the early 1900s to enjoy. On Sunday 30 May, the focus will be on art and will include a visit to Spaza Gallery, Living Artists Emporium and the Ellis House Open Studios.

We meet at The Tennis Club/Ellis Park Arena on Bertrams Road (for secure parking) at 09h30. Tell the security guard you are visiting the Living Artists Emporium. From there, we’ll enjoy a stroll around Bertrams and Troyeville, ending up back where we started by 12h30. You may like to round off your tour with a delicious Portugese lunch at the Troyeville Hotel or a visit to the fabulous Victoria Yards.
