Spread the love

This weekend in Gauteng watch Winnie the Pooh or the Blue Man Group; visit the Animatronics Transformers Expo or go to a market.

  1. Winnie the Pooh Kids

You’ll appreciate Pooh’s sunny nature and his love of honey. Pooh and his friends go on expeditions, muse about honey and birthdays, tell jokes and sing songs. There are two shows daily: 9am and 11am during the school term and 10:30am and 11:30am on weekends, public holidays and school holidays. Bookings essential.
