    Ndere Centre

    If you’re interested in traditional dance and music, try to catch a dinner-theatre performance of the Ndere Troupe at Ndere Centre. It showcases dances from many of Uganda’s tribal groups with high-energy shows taking place in a 700-seat amphitheatre on Sundays at 6pm and Wednesday at 7pm. On Fridays it's afro-jazz from 7pm. Dinner is mediocre (and optional).

    Musicians Club

    Kampala musicians get together every Monday at the National Theatre for informal jams and live performances – a must if you're in the city. The place fills with Ugandans letting off steam after work and the drinks flow. On the second and last Monday of the month, the event shifts outside and becomes a minifestival, with beer tents and a serious sound system.

    National Theatre

    There’s a quality program of music, film, dance and drama performances in the theatre itself, but most travellers come here for the popular, free nightly outdoor events. Grab a beer and a chair and catch an informal open-stage jam on Monday evenings, African drumming on Tuesdays or comedy night on Thursdays, where the merriment is in English and Luganda.
