Fazielah’s top 3 weekday picks in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
I'll bet you’re as fed-up with battling the sniffles and staying indoors this chilly season as I am, so why not join me at the following events and places from June 18 to 21, and discover why Cape Town warms up in winter?
Few things warm me more than a bout of uncontrollable laughter. And with the jam-packed programme at the Vodacom Funny Festival at the Baxter Theatre this week, I know I’m going to be positively toasty!
Don’t miss comedian Alan Committie as MC along with Kev Orkian, The Boy With Tape On His Face, and Kurt Schoonraad on stage.
