About us

The Forum│Turbine Hall

This historic venue that once operated as a power station back in the 1920’s, is an integral part of Johannesburg’s architectural history. After an extensive refurbishment, the iconic building reopened to the public in 2005 and has since become a firm favourite for hosting a range of world-class events and conferences.

Nestled in the heart of the city’s trendy arts and cultural precinct, the space is also one of Joburg’s most coveted wedding and party venues, due to its unique and edgy industrial spaces accented by beautifully modern interiors.
