Your #lovecapetown Weekend: Things to do from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 October, 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 I love more than a weekend in gorgeous #lovecapetown filled with entertainment and folks, let me tell you, things are about to kick off with a bang!
Whether you’re a theatrical circus lover, a close-up magic fanatic or a bohemian rock music aficionado, there is plenty for you to see and do in and around the Mother City.
Join at me the following events from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 October, 2013 and discover why the fun never stops in our entertaining paradise at the seaside:
The amazing Theatre of Dreams, home to the bewitching Madame and her fantastical cast is the setting of this dazzling new show which features aerial artists, big-voiced singers ,incredibly flexible contortionists and more.
In addition to the amazing acts, the four course dinner (which includes the sinfully delicious chocolate chilli beef fillet and springbok shank) is not to be missed!
I, quite frankly, cannot wait to return to the Madame’s world of fantasy so join me by reserving your night of spellbinding pleasure at +27 (0)861 623 263.
So, you know how I love magic? Well, I adore brilliant magic shows performed by enigmatic artists even more and that is exactly what the award-winning illusionist Stuart Lightbody has on offer in his latest show, Illusive, at Kalk Bay Theatre this weekend.
Using an alluring combination of sleight of hand artistry (keep an eye out for the jaw-dropping needle swallowing effect!), elegant storytelling and charisma, Lightbody (who has just returned from a run at the Amsterdam Fringe Festival) will have you crying out in surprise and wonder.
Illusive runs until Sunday only and tickets are disappearing fast so book yours now at www.kbt.co.za
The Western Cape’s number one outdoor music and lifestyle festival is set to rock Darling like never before!
With four live stages, gourmet food stalls and a thrilling line-up of acts, including Goodluck, Woodstock Mafia, Goldfish, Crazy White Boy and Ready D, Daisies is going to be one epic party.
