Johannesburg city centre boasts an iconic venue in the heart of its arts and culture precinct, Newtown.  With the new Gautrain Park Station which opened in June and the nearest bus stop only one street away from the venue, you can now take the Gautrain to your next conference or event at Turbine Hall.

The building that started out as a power station for the city in the late 1920’s is an integral part of Johannesburg’s architectural history and has become a much coveted wedding and party venue, as well the location of choice for corporate launches and conferences.
