Last night the SunStar Beacon of Hope was unveiled and lit up on Signal Hill. And it looks pretty spectacular.
Designed by Christopher Swift and part of the World Design Capital initiatives, the SunStar was made with pieces of the fencing from Robben Island.
Standing 24 metres high, this outdoor art installation will stay on Signal Hill for about six months before it’s moved, possibly to one of the properties of Sun International, who funded the piece.
The Cape Town International Jazz Festival is a huge annual event that brings together top-class local and international jazz acts for the entertainment of those in the Mother City. It’s an event that people travel for and an event where if you’re not quick off the mark for tickets, you stand a good chance of missing out. Some of the line-up for the 2015 festival has just been announced and judging by the talent, the next Cape Town International Jazz Festival looks all set to impress the crowds.
Taking time out for yourself in Cape Town can take many forms. You can take a walk on the beach, enjoy a spa treatment, tuck into gourmet food and wine or sip on a perfect brew with a few sweet treats to delight you at high tea.
Often the perfect way to catch up with friends or loved ones, high tea not only offers an afternoon of exciting new teas and treats that delight the eyes and palate, you can also enjoy all of this while admiring the splendour of your surroundings.
I sampled a few high teas on offer around the city and found a few gems.
