Your Cape Town Weekend: things to do from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 April, 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’s nothing that I love more than attending a great show in my beloved Mother City and let me tell you, Cape Town fanatics, this weekend is sure to be entertaining!
Whether you’re an Afro-fusion music aficionado, a comedy lover or a mystical performance admirer, you’re spoilt for choice in the Fairest Cape for the next 48 hours.
Join me at the following events in Cape Town this weekend and discover why the Mother City is such a great entertainer:
Can you believe it’s time for the last Summer Sunset Concert at the sprawling Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden?
Legendary South African performer Johnny Clegg ensures this year’s season ends with a bang as he rocks your musical world with his greatest hits, including Jongosi, Take My Heart Away and more.
For more information, call +27 (0)21 761 2866.
Spend a mystifying evening or two with the charismatic Bryan Miles at the quaint Playhouse Theatre in Somerset West as he unlocks the true potential of the human mind in his latest one-man show, Your Thoughts are Mine.
Using his special skill set, including magic, suggestion, psychology and yes, even his devilish good looks, Bryan will leave you spellbound in this not-to-be-missed show.
Tickets are available at Computicket.
With his big hair and even bigger, uh, sense of humour, Capetonian comedian Marc Lottering is set to tickle your funny bone with his Comedy Roadshow at the GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World this Saturday.
Joining this comical genius onstage is UK piano comic Kev Orkian (fans will remember him from his Funny Festival performances), and local jokers Tumi Morake and Robby Collins.
Call +27 (0)861 915 8000 for more information.
