Your #lovecapetown weekend: What’s on from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 June, 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 EPIC weekend in the Mother City, #lovecapetown?!
So what if it’s going to be chilly? With awesome rock star concerts, hilarious comedy shows and fabulous markets happening all over the Peninsula, there is just so much to see and do in our amazing hometown.
Ditch the blankets and onesies and join me at the HOT events in Cape Town from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 June, 2014:
Grammy-nominated singer and performer Tori Amos takes to the Cape Town International Convention Centre stage this Sunday!
The “Crucify “ hitmaker will enthral all of her alternative rock music-loving fans with songs off her latest album, Unrepentant Geraldines and it is sure to be a captivating show.
Tickets are available at Computicket.
Kaapse Stoep Stories
I saw local musical star Alistair Izobel’s side-splitting show, Kaapse Stoep Stories at the Baxter Theatre in Rondebosch last week and couldn’t stop laughing!
His take on his life growing up on the Cape Flats and the people, both family and friends, who helped to shape him into the renowned performer he is today as well as the reflections on being a Cape Coloured will resonate with both young and old. Stoep Stories is definitely worth a night out!
Book your tickets at Computicket.
Some good friends of mine are really into vintage clothing, collectibles and creating awesome steam punk items, which they swear can all be found at the treasure trove that is the Milnerton Market.
Keep an eagle eye out for brilliant finds and bring your negotiation A game for bartering with stallholders. With its incredible views of Lagoon Beach and Table Mountain, the Market is the best outdoor shopping experience you have in Cape Town this winter.
