Your Cape Town Weekend: Things to do from Friday 23 to Sunday25 August,2013
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.
There is really so much to see and do in our fabulous hometown this weekend, from hilarious comedy shows to delicious wine festivals and exhibitions brimming with creativity, so get out there and have some fun!
Here’s the 441 on what to do from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 August, 2013:
You won’t want to be Norman (that’s a normal person with a good grasp on sanity) once you’ve seen the three dashingly handsome and over-the-top hilarious leads, Aaron McIlroy, Ben Voss and John van de Ruit, in Theatre on the Bay’s latest hit show, The Rise of the Insanity League.
Reminiscent of John Cleese and the Monty Python crew, the Insanity League trio will have you rolling down the aisles with their sketch comedy show which pokes fun at just about anything you can think of whilst taking you on the evolution of insanity.
Book your tickets NOW at +27 (0861 915 8000.
Award-winning wines, breath-taking views and gourmet meals prepared by world-class chefs in the Constantia Winelands… what more could you possibly need?
Don’t miss the delicious annual Big Bottle Festival which showcases Bouchard Finlayson, Hamilton-Russell, Iona, Delaire Graff Estate, Buitenverwachting, Neil Ellis, Jordan, Thelema Mountain Vineyards, Tokara and Klein Constantia wines poured from big bottles.
For more information, please call +27 (0)72 467 5943.
So you love your World Design Capital and want to learn more about her innovative elements? Then you simply must visit the various Open Design Cape Town exhibitions and events around the Mother City this weekend.
My recommendation? Start at the amazing art exhibition at the City Hall, then take your streets back with a Neighbourhood Lunch at Barrack Lane Alley and end off your artistic experience with a coffee break at Truth.
