Teledata’s Favourite Links Of The Week: Finding Events In Ghana
Do you have some free time but are unsure what to do, or where to go? There are events in Ghana all the time, but finding out about them can be difficult. Gone are the days we would rely on the newspaper to keep us updated on concerts, festivals or conferences going on. Now, we can just go online and plan our activities. Teledata has compiled the below handy links to help you find something interesting to do.
Use Facebook to find events in Ghana
Advertising events on Facebook are becoming more and more popular. Sometimes you will only hear of an event if someone invites you to it on Facebook, but with this link, you can be in the know!
From restaurant openings to church events to concerts, if an event is listed on Facebook, and you have put your location in then Facebook will tell you the events in your area. Very handy! When you click on the event you can see who else is going, and if you say you are interested or going to it, Facebook reminds you of this as well, leading up to the event.
Accra Expat listings
This website was set up for expats living in Accra. It is full of advice and useful links on life in the capital, but its content is perfect for anyone. The events calendar on the website is frequently updated and lists contact information and advertising posters when possible. You can look for events in Ghana through the categories, like business, culture or entertainment or you can scroll through to plan your day! There are also weekly and social calendars too.
Purlieu – an app to keep you updated
An app launched earlier in 2016 brings you local events to “show you your city.” Purlieu which is for Android phones lets you browse events in your area.
Its description on Google Play says you can use the app to browse your personalized feed of events based on your passions, interests, and your social connections. You can also see events your friends are attending and follow promoters to get updates on their events.
There is a calendar as well which reminds you of events you want to attend.
It already has an average of 4.5 stars on Google Play reviews. Some users even call it a ‘game changer.’
