Your #lovecapetown weekend: Things to do from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 May, 2014
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.
Are you ready for an amazing weekend in our Mother City?
From magical musicals to thrilling sport matches and healthy living at organic markets, there is plenty to see and love in our amazing hometown.
Get out from under the covers and join me for the following events around Cape Town, from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 May, 2014:
The larger-than-life musical, Show Boat, returns to the Artscape Theatre for a limited run this weekend.
Treat yourselves and your loved ones to this South African production of one of America’s first musicals with well-known hit songs and fabulous costumes and sets.
You all know how much I LOVE stage and this the perfect one to lose yourself in as the tale of the old American South and the lives of the performers, stagehands, and dockworkers on the Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat, unfolds over a 40-year period.
Book your tickets at Computicket.
2014 Stormers Vs Western Force Super Rugby Match
Ok, I’ll admit the only things I adore more than a musical are hot rugby players and there will be plenty at this Saturday’s Stormers Vs Western Force Super Rugby match at Newlands Stadium.
This hang-onto-the-edge-of-your-seats match sees our boys face off against Australia’s Western Force.
Tickets are available at Ticketpros.
Find your inner peace and the week’s fresh veggies, all indoors, at the quaint City Bowl Market in Gardens.
Flex those muscles at the yoga class upstairs at 10am, then get all of the delicious goodness at the variety of food stalls downstairs,
