Activities at Melrose Arch


To facilitate the smooth running of the activities at Melrose Arch, the organizers are contracting with companies to erect a stage with a Small run away for the Fashion Show, a public address sound system and marquees to be used as change room. The Parade will lead into the Johannesburg Pride after party. Commercial products, Food and Beverages will be sold to participants in the Gay Village. Beverages severed with food will take the form of soft drinks, smart drinks and light alcoholic drinks (malt and wine). Applications for the temporary transfer of the liquor license to the venue will be made. Community organizations and interest groups will set up tables and stalls to advertise their activities and sell items such as T-shirts, literature and memorabilia. The organizers will coordinator the allocations of tables and stalls to the interested parties.
