Your #lovecapetown Weekend: Things to do from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 January, 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.
It’s your long awaited payday weekend in #lovecapetown and boy, is it going to be fun!
From enjoying Shakespeare in the Park to blasting your vuvuzelas at a soccer match and rocking out with a legend in Bellville, there is plenty to see and do in the Mother City.
Join me at the following events in Cape Town from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 January, 2014:
The Bard’s diabolical tale of King Richard’s cunning (and often bloody) short-lived reign of England is told in theatrical splendour at the impressive Maynardville Open-Air Theatre this summer.
Warrick Grier as the villainous Richard is utterly captivating and the brilliant direction of Lara Bye, coupled with set design by Mari Borstlap and lighting by Faheem Bardien give this Shakespearean classic a gothic, modern feel.
There are few things I love more than theatre and picnics in a park, and with this production, you can happily do both.
Book your tickets for this must-see classic at Computicket.
We’re hurtling full speed ahead towards the finals of the thrilling African Cup of Nations and this Saturday, the Cape Town Stadium plays host to the highly anticipated match between Morocco and Nigeria.
Kick-off is at 17h00. Get your tickets at Computicket.
Rock legend Bruce Springsteen and his band E Street are set to bring down the house at Bellville Velodrome with the first of their series of concerts in #lovecapetown this Sunday.
Tickets are available at Computicket.
