This year 2013 sees us celebrate 100 years since the birth of Trevor Huddleston.  There will be a number of events in South Africa and the UK to mark this important centenary.


Visit: www.sophiatown.net  for more information about these events.


In keeping with the spirit of the Sophiatown of the 50s, THMC hosts jazz events in the intimacy of an iconic house that survived the rather unfortunate “demolition of Sophiatown”. These events are in keeping with the spirit that Sophiatown, and all its good, will never perish.


These jazz events happen once a month at the Xuma house, and the artists are hand-picked based on whether their music is relevant to the beat of Sophiatown.


What’s happening in Sophiatown

Motswako Enterprise and Cultural Hub - an new state of the art environmentally sustainable building in Sophiatown to house cultural events, training and an enterprise incubator for the creative industries is in development.  We are awaiting the City of Joburg’s permission to re-zone the property adjacent to the historic A B Xuma house.  Watch this space for updates.
