Your #lovecapetown Weekend: Things to do from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 February, 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.
Friends, are you ready for a jam-packed #lovecapetown weekend?
What lies ahead are 48 hours of unbelievable fun and experiences… everything from pink and fabulous parties, to brilliant theatre productions and classical music concerts and more.
Put on your party shoes, Mother City lovers, and join me at the following events in fun-loving Cape Town, from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 February, 2014:
Ready to club hop in your sparkling best in pink-loving De Waterkant? Then don’t miss the launch party for this year’s Pride Festival.
The pre-cursor to two entire weeks dedicated to celebrating our beautiful pink friends, the Party ensures that R 20 gets you an all access pass to the greatest night spots along the Pink Strip, including Beefcakes, Crew Bar and more.

Folks, do yourselves a favour this weekend and book tickets for this incredible award-winning dramatic production at the Baxter Theatre.
Starring the charismatic Jamie Bartlett as Harold Smith, an eccentric history teacher with an amaXhosa culture obsession, and Nicholas Pauling, Shirley Johnston and Ashleigh Harvey, as his long-suffering family; Death of a Colonialist is an excellent commentary on what it means to be South African in our young democracy and the things we miss when we’re too busy focusing on other things.
Tickets are available at Computicket.
The luscious lawns of Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens get a classical makeover as the renowned Cape Philharmonic Orchestra takes to the stage this Sunday.
Tickets are sold out online but you might be able to get them at the door.
Call +27(0)21 761 2866 for more info.
