Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

“This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
(Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
audience.”

Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    While the vineyards are still decked out in the last vestiges of orange and yellow and late autumn starts to tickle its cold fingers down your spine, it is time for our farms to throw open the barn doors and invite the world to come and celebrate at our annual Wacky Wine Weekend, this year to be held from 4th to 7th June 2015.

    Time has been the winemaker's assistant and the first of the crop is ready to drink.  Tents are up and tables and chairs dusted off. Musicians come from far and wide and a buzz of excitement vibrates through the air. We rejoice in the product of last year's labour and the rest that is to come and in life itself.

    This much-loved event, with its family-friendly collection of old traditions and novel attractions, has firmly secured its reputation as a “must-do” on the Cape’s annual social calendar. This de-centralised affair boasts a line-up of unique events and activities to suit the fun-seeker, novice or a wine connoisseur. There is something for everyone with: ‘Seriously Wine Thursday’, ‘Wine Up Friday’, ‘Full On Wacky Saturday’ or ‘Wine Down Sunday’.  ‘Seriously Wine Thursday’ promises to inspire wine aficionados with a range of tailor-made activities, for instance: master wine-tastings, exquisite wine- and food-pairings, educational wine presentations and private tastings with the Valley’s most esteemed winemakers.

    The Wacky Wine Weekend will embrace the usual line-up of fun-filled activities, for example:
    ‘meet-the-winemaker’ tastings, brandy tours and tastings, river cruises, barrel tastings, cheese- and olive tastings, a simulated rodeo bull, a mountain bike challenge and local performing artists.

    The Valley will also be presenting a gastronomic extravaganza, with visitors spoilt for choice: oysters, abalone, freshly baked breads, sushi, riverside picnics and plenty of stalls with fresh produce  are just a few of the gourmet delights on offer. 

    And while the adults are revelling in these activities, there will, as always, be a wide range of children’s activities including: fishing, jumping castles, pony rides, tractor trips and jungle gym

    Following on the successful #RightPlaceRightTime of 2014, the valley will again host a funky social media campaign, so keep your ears to the ground and eyes on your cellphone – you don’t want to miss out on this fun aspect of the event as there are wonderful prizes up for grabs.


    Festival-goers are invited to join the Robertson Wine Valley in supporting their local charities.  Help take the chill out of winter by donating blankets and winter clothing, for all ages, for those less fortunate.  In return the Valley will reward you with wine, according to the weight of your donation, with a maximum of a 6- bottle case of wine which weighs about 9kg.  All donations are please to be handed in at the Robertson Wine Valley office, corner of Voortrekker and Reitz Streets, Robertson.

    As part of the Robertson Wine Valley’s commitment to ensure a safe festival, a Zero Tolerance Policy is implemented towards ‘drinking and driving’. Visitors are requested to make use of the Buddy Bus or the Designated Driver Programme. The Buddy Bus facility enables groups of seven or more visitors to hire a chauffeur-driven mini-bus.

    There will be two aspects to the Designated Driver option for 2015.  The first option will be to “hire” a local designated driver who will see to your destination requirements throughout the festival.  Contact details for these drivers can be found on www.wackywineweekend.com. Costs for the weekend can be determined according to individual festival goers needs upon booking.

    The second option will be for those individual festival goers who will be enjoying all the fun but will refrain from drinking in order to be the designated driver for his friends.  This individual will purchase a passport at R120 to enable access to all the amenities but will in addition receive a special Designated Driver pass and goodie bag.

    Wacky Wine Weekend Bus-In Packages are also available. A2B Tours will be offering one day packages, with transport departing from the Waterfront, Tygervalley, Stellenbosch (Butterfly World) and Paarl, to Robertson, and ‘Buddy Bus’ transport between the participating wineries. See contact details below.

    For visitors from further a-field, Beyond Reach has once again put together great Fly-In Packages that include flights, car rental and accommodation.

    So head out to the Robertson Wine Valley for a winter getaway at the Wacky Wine Weekend – where the fun never stops!

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    While the vineyards are still decked out in the last vestiges of orange and yellow and late autumn starts to tickle its cold fingers down your spine, it is time for our farms to throw open the barn doors and invite the world to come and celebrate at our annual Wacky Wine Weekend, this year to be held from 4th to 7th June 2015.

    Time has been the winemaker's assistant and the first of the crop is ready to drink.  Tents are up and tables and chairs dusted off. Musicians come from far and wide and a buzz of excitement vibrates through the air. We rejoice in the product of last year's labour and the rest that is to come and in life itself.

    This much-loved event, with its family-friendly collection of old traditions and novel attractions, has firmly secured its reputation as a “must-do” on the Cape’s annual social calendar. This de-centralised affair boasts a line-up of unique events and activities to suit the fun-seeker, novice or a wine connoisseur. There is something for everyone with: ‘Seriously Wine Thursday’, ‘Wine Up Friday’, ‘Full On Wacky Saturday’ or ‘Wine Down Sunday’.  ‘Seriously Wine Thursday’ promises to inspire wine aficionados with a range of tailor-made activities, for instance: master wine-tastings, exquisite wine- and food-pairings, educational wine presentations and private tastings with the Valley’s most esteemed winemakers.

    The Wacky Wine Weekend will embrace the usual line-up of fun-filled activities, for example:
    ‘meet-the-winemaker’ tastings, brandy tours and tastings, river cruises, barrel tastings, cheese- and olive tastings, a simulated rodeo bull, a mountain bike challenge and local performing artists.

    The Valley will also be presenting a gastronomic extravaganza, with visitors spoilt for choice: oysters, abalone, freshly baked breads, sushi, riverside picnics and plenty of stalls with fresh produce  are just a few of the gourmet delights on offer. 

    And while the adults are revelling in these activities, there will, as always, be a wide range of children’s activities including: fishing, jumping castles, pony rides, tractor trips and jungle gym

    Following on the successful #RightPlaceRightTime of 2014, the valley will again host a funky social media campaign, so keep your ears to the ground and eyes on your cellphone – you don’t want to miss out on this fun aspect of the event as there are wonderful prizes up for grabs.


    Festival-goers are invited to join the Robertson Wine Valley in supporting their local charities.  Help take the chill out of winter by donating blankets and winter clothing, for all ages, for those less fortunate.  In return the Valley will reward you with wine, according to the weight of your donation, with a maximum of a 6- bottle case of wine which weighs about 9kg.  All donations are please to be handed in at the Robertson Wine Valley office, corner of Voortrekker and Reitz Streets, Robertson.

    As part of the Robertson Wine Valley’s commitment to ensure a safe festival, a Zero Tolerance Policy is implemented towards ‘drinking and driving’. Visitors are requested to make use of the Buddy Bus or the Designated Driver Programme. The Buddy Bus facility enables groups of seven or more visitors to hire a chauffeur-driven mini-bus.

    There will be two aspects to the Designated Driver option for 2015.  The first option will be to “hire” a local designated driver who will see to your destination requirements throughout the festival.  Contact details for these drivers can be found on www.wackywineweekend.com. Costs for the weekend can be determined according to individual festival goers needs upon booking.

    The second option will be for those individual festival goers who will be enjoying all the fun but will refrain from drinking in order to be the designated driver for his friends.  This individual will purchase a passport at R120 to enable access to all the amenities but will in addition receive a special Designated Driver pass and goodie bag.

    Wacky Wine Weekend Bus-In Packages are also available. A2B Tours will be offering one day packages, with transport departing from the Waterfront, Tygervalley, Stellenbosch (Butterfly World) and Paarl, to Robertson, and ‘Buddy Bus’ transport between the participating wineries.

    For visitors from further a-field, Beyond Reach has once again put together great Fly-In Packages that include flights, car rental and accommodation.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    "We met for the 1st time on a Tuesday morning, the day before our 1st gig. It was extremely awkward, like being on a first date, nervous that there would be zero chemistry. But after 10 minutes of jamming - love was in the air - we knew a special musical connection was going down. Loads of incredible gigs and dates later, still no idea what genre we've created, but we can’t wait to play again",  says the trio".

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    While the vineyards are still decked out in the last vestiges of orange and yellow and late autumn starts to tickle its cold fingers down your spine, it is time for our farms to throw open the barn doors and invite the world to come and celebrate at our annual Wacky Wine Weekend, this year to be held from 4th to 7th June 2015.

    Time has been the winemaker's assistant and the first of the crop is ready to drink.  Tents are up and tables and chairs dusted off. Musicians come from far and wide and a buzz of excitement vibrates through the air. We rejoice in the product of last year's labour and the rest that is to come and in life itself.

    This much-loved event, with its family-friendly collection of old traditions and novel attractions, has firmly secured its reputation as a “must-do” on the Cape’s annual social calendar. This de-centralised affair boasts a line-up of unique events and activities to suit the fun-seeker, novice or a wine connoisseur. There is something for everyone with: ‘Seriously Wine Thursday’, ‘Wine Up Friday’, ‘Full On Wacky Saturday’ or ‘Wine Down Sunday’.  ‘Seriously Wine Thursday’ promises to inspire wine aficionados with a range of tailor-made activities, for instance: master wine-tastings, exquisite wine- and food-pairings, educational wine presentations and private tastings with the Valley’s most esteemed winemakers.

    The Wacky Wine Weekend will embrace the usual line-up of fun-filled activities, for example:
    ‘meet-the-winemaker’ tastings, brandy tours and tastings, river cruises, barrel tastings, cheese- and olive tastings, a simulated rodeo bull, a mountain bike challenge and local performing artists.

    The Valley will also be presenting a gastronomic extravaganza, with visitors spoilt for choice: oysters, abalone, freshly baked breads, sushi, riverside picnics and plenty of stalls with fresh produce  are just a few of the gourmet delights on offer. 

    And while the adults are revelling in these activities, there will, as always, be a wide range of children’s activities including: fishing, jumping castles, pony rides, tractor trips and jungle gym

    Following on the successful #RightPlaceRightTime of 2014, the valley will again host a funky social media campaign, so keep your ears to the ground and eyes on your cellphone – you don’t want to miss out on this fun aspect of the event as there are wonderful prizes up for grabs.


    Festival-goers are invited to join the Robertson Wine Valley in supporting their local charities.  Help take the chill out of winter by donating blankets and winter clothing, for all ages, for those less fortunate.  In return the Valley will reward you with wine, according to the weight of your donation, with a maximum of a 6- bottle case of wine which weighs about 9kg.  All donations are please to be handed in at the Robertson Wine Valley office, corner of Voortrekker and Reitz Streets, Robertson.

    As part of the Robertson Wine Valley’s commitment to ensure a safe festival, a Zero Tolerance Policy is implemented towards ‘drinking and driving’. Visitors are requested to make use of the Buddy Bus or the Designated Driver Programme. The Buddy Bus facility enables groups of seven or more visitors to hire a chauffeur-driven mini-bus.

    There will be two aspects to the Designated Driver option for 2015.  The first option will be to “hire” a local designated driver who will see to your destination requirements throughout the festival.  Contact details for these drivers can be found on www.wackywineweekend.com. Costs for the weekend can be determined according to individual festival goers needs upon booking.

    The second option will be for those individual festival goers who will be enjoying all the fun but will refrain from drinking in order to be the designated driver for his friends.  This individual will purchase a passport at R120 to enable access to all the amenities but will in addition receive a special Designated Driver pass and goodie bag.

    Wacky Wine Weekend Bus-In Packages are also available. A2B Tours will be offering one day packages, with transport departing from the Waterfront, Tygervalley, Stellenbosch (Butterfly World) and Paarl, to Robertson, and ‘Buddy Bus’ transport between the participating wineries.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    While the vineyards are still decked out in the last vestiges of orange and yellow and late autumn starts to tickle its cold fingers down your spine, it is time for our farms to throw open the barn doors and invite the world to come and celebrate at our annual Wacky Wine Weekend, this year to be held from 4th to 7th June 2015.

    Time has been the winemaker's assistant and the first of the crop is ready to drink.  Tents are up and tables and chairs dusted off. Musicians come from far and wide and a buzz of excitement vibrates through the air. We rejoice in the product of last year's labour and the rest that is to come and in life itself.

    This much-loved event, with its family-friendly collection of old traditions and novel attractions, has firmly secured its reputation as a “must-do” on the Cape’s annual social calendar. This de-centralised affair boasts a line-up of unique events and activities to suit the fun-seeker, novice or a wine connoisseur. There is something for everyone with: ‘Seriously Wine Thursday’, ‘Wine Up Friday’, ‘Full On Wacky Saturday’ or ‘Wine Down Sunday’.  ‘Seriously Wine Thursday’ promises to inspire wine aficionados with a range of tailor-made activities, for instance: master wine-tastings, exquisite wine- and food-pairings, educational wine presentations and private tastings with the Valley’s most esteemed winemakers.

    The Wacky Wine Weekend will embrace the usual line-up of fun-filled activities, for example:
    ‘meet-the-winemaker’ tastings, brandy tours and tastings, river cruises, barrel tastings, cheese- and olive tastings, a simulated rodeo bull, a mountain bike challenge and local performing artists.

    The Valley will also be presenting a gastronomic extravaganza, with visitors spoilt for choice: oysters, abalone, freshly baked breads, sushi, riverside picnics and plenty of stalls with fresh produce  are just a few of the gourmet delights on offer. 

    And while the adults are revelling in these activities, there will, as always, be a wide range of children’s activities including: fishing, jumping castles, pony rides, tractor trips and jungle gym

    Following on the successful #RightPlaceRightTime of 2014, the valley will again host a funky social media campaign, so keep your ears to the ground and eyes on your cellphone – you don’t want to miss out on this fun aspect of the event as there are wonderful prizes up for grabs.


    Festival-goers are invited to join the Robertson Wine Valley in supporting their local charities.  Help take the chill out of winter by donating blankets and winter clothing, for all ages, for those less fortunate.  In return the Valley will reward you with wine, according to the weight of your donation, with a maximum of a 6- bottle case of wine which weighs about 9kg.  All donations are please to be handed in at the Robertson Wine Valley office, corner of Voortrekker and Reitz Streets, Robertson.

    As part of the Robertson Wine Valley’s commitment to ensure a safe festival, a Zero Tolerance Policy is implemented towards ‘drinking and driving’. Visitors are requested to make use of the Buddy Bus or the Designated Driver Programme. The Buddy Bus facility enables groups of seven or more visitors to hire a chauffeur-driven mini-bus.

    There will be two aspects to the Designated Driver option for 2015.  The first option will be to “hire” a local designated driver who will see to your destination requirements throughout the festival.  Contact details for these drivers can be found on www.wackywineweekend.com. Costs for the weekend can be determined according to individual festival goers needs upon booking.

    The second option will be for those individual festival goers who will be enjoying all the fun but will refrain from drinking in order to be the designated driver for his friends.  This individual will purchase a passport at R120 to enable access to all the amenities but will in addition receive a special Designated Driver pass and goodie bag.

    Wacky Wine Weekend Bus-In Packages are also available. A2B Tours will be offering one day packages, with transport departing from the Waterfront, Tygervalley, Stellenbosch (Butterfly World) and Paarl, to Robertson, and ‘Buddy Bus’ transport between the participating wineries.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.

This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    BOKANI DYER Bokani Dyer was born on the 21st of January, 1986 in Gaborone, Botswana. An auspicious setting in retrospect, where many exiled musicians and artists from South Africa including Bokani's father, musician Steve Dyer, were living in exile. Having musicians around in his early life gave Bokani the profound insight into the life of a musician and sparked a keen interest in pursuing music as a career.

    After taking up formal piano studies at age 14 for 4 years, he was accepted into the Jazz program at the University of Cape Town where he graduated in 2008 with an Honours degree in Performance and Composition with distinction. In 2009 Bokani won a scholarship for further study in the SAMRO endowment piano competition. He chose to spend 3 weeks in New York where he was tutored by Jason Moran.

    In 2011, Bokani Dyer was awarded the prestigious Standard Bank young Artist award for Jazz, bestowed upon visionary artists like Mark Fransman, Andile Yenana and Kesivan Naidoo in past years. Dyer has recorded two albums under his own name. His debut album, Mirrors was released in 2010, and provides a strong indication of the style and artistic trajectory Bokani continues to pursue. Emancipate the Story (2011), is a recording made possible by the Standard Bank as part of the jazz young artist award. In August 2013, he was awarded first prize in the SAMRO Overseas Scholarship after competing in the annual competition.

    He toured Europe with his quintet in May 2014 visiting Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic and the UK. As a result of the tour, he was invited to perform at the London Jazz Festival in November 2014. Critics comments: “Bokani Dyer’s debut may come to be remembered as sparks that played a role in bringing about a sea of change in the way London and the world view jazz from Africa” African Jazz Reviews 2014 “Dyer’s music has an emotional depth and lyricism that one imagines any newcomer wanting to embrace” Jazzwise “His is a strong, individual sound and an emblem of the rise of a new wave of contemporary jazz voices” Mail & Guardian “His compositions were strong, and his ability to navigate changing moods and to lead the group were engaging” London Jazz News

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Kenny will also be supported by the country legends “Big Daddy” Lance James, “Queen of Country” Barbara Ray, “Midnight Cowboy” Clive Bruce and  “The Killer” Tommy Dell.         

    Tickets for all concert dates go on sale at 9am today (Monday 30th March 2015) from Computicket.

    GRAMMY Award-winning country superstar and music icon Kenny Rogers has enjoyed great success during his storied career of five and a half decades. The enduring Country Music Hall of Fame member and pop superstar has endeared music lovers around the globe with his amazing songs, heartfelt performances, distinctive voice, gift for storytelling and universal appeal. 


    Rogers has played to millions of fans around the world, performing songs from his catalogue of 24 Number One hits, including “The Gambler,” “Islands In The Stream,” “She Believes In Me,” “Lucille,” “Coward Of The County,” “Lady,” “Through The Years,” “Daytime Friends,” “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town,” “You Decorated My Life,” “We’ve Got Tonight,” and many more.
    The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers has played to millions of fans around the world and has charted a record within each of the last seven decades (’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, 2000’s, 2010’s). 

    He has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, making him one of the Top Ten Best Selling Male Artists of All Time, according to the RIAA.  Rogers has won many awards for his music and charity work, including three GRAMMY Awards, 19 American Music Awards, 11 People’s Choice Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards and six Country Music Association Awards, including the CMA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013. 

    Rogers’ music has always crossed boundaries — his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10’s is sixth-best all-time, and fourth-best among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond and Elvis Presley.

    Remaining a popular entertainer around the world, Rogers, voted the “Favourite Singer of All-Time” in a joint poll by readers of both USA Today and People, still loves touring and recording new music. “I really, really love what I’m doing,” Rogers says. “People survive longer if they love what they’re doing—because you just don’t quit.”

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    American rockers OneRepublic will return to Cape Town as part of their ‘Native’ world tour this year!

    OneRepublic have achieved huge international success with their first album ‘Dreaming Out Loud’ certified as platinum, earning them a Grammy nomination and going straight to number one in 16 countries. Their first single ‘Apologize’ remixed by Timbaland ranks in the top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100’s All-Time Top Songs list and became a worldwide smash hit and their second single ‘Stop and Stare’ followed with the same success. Their second album ‘Waking Up’  spawned hit singles ‘All the Right Moves’ and ‘Good Life’.

    In creating their third full-length album ‘Native’ last year, OneRepublic travelled to Paris, Greece, London, New York, Seattle, and Vancouver to write and record describing it as a ‘bold and boundary-pushing follow-up to 2009’s Waking Up, offering up a surge of stadium-sized rock that’s fiercely beat-driven yet ethereal and intimate’. ‘Native’ debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 and their hit single ‘Counting Stars’ reached number two on the Billboard Top 100, their highest charting single since ‘Apologize’, as well as the top 10 of the Kia Top 40 on 94.7.

    Tickets available at Computicket.

    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.

This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS

    Life is a beach for the bulls that are the stars in multi award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer’s latest work collectively entitled, Amapondo, which opens at the Jan Royce Gallery in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 June, 2015.

    The Amapondo people are a sub-branch of the Xhosa tribe who live in brightly painted thatched huts nestled amongst the rolling hills of Pondoland on South Africa’s beautiful and wild east coast. 

    A maze of paths meander through its valleys and down its granite cliffs, fringed by ancient climbing Milkwood Trees, ending at the pristine beaches and surf that form the backdrop to Rimmer’s strikingly beautiful  portraits.

    Pondo cattle visit the beach every day. Reports from shipwrecked sailors stranded on the Pondoland coast suggest they have been doing so since at least the 16th Century, but no one is quite sure why. Rimmer suspects it is simply because they enjoy being there.

    In a series of twenty large scale portraits which possess an almost Zen like quality, Rimmer invites the viewer to reconsider this everyday beast in a new light and in doing so, perhaps forge a new emotional connection to an animal which has served mankind since time immemorial.

    ‘When people see these animals in such an eccentric location, they are both amused and moved, particularly when they realise the scene is natural and hasn’t involved any digital trickery,’ Rimmer says.  ‘I spent a long time observing these animals and, as resistant as I am to anthropomorphising, I could come to no other conclusion than: the bulls visit the beach daily because they simply enjoy being there.’

    In most photographs, the subject makes direct eye contact with the viewer, challenging their preconceptions and suggesting an emotional dimension that we, as the audience, may have chosen to ignore.

    The protagonist in Christopher Rimmer’s Amapondo series  is a living creature whose flesh we eat, whose skin we wear and whose bones we boil down to make glue and yet, here is the same animal perhaps experiencing a certain joy at its own existence.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    From Saturday, 06 June 2015, the popular weekly farmer’s market founded by the Oranjezicht City Farm will relocate to the Granger Bay section of the V&A Waterfront for the winter from its current venue at Leeuwenhof, the historic premier’s residence in Oranjezicht.

    This scheduled move is due to wet winter conditions that make the use of the lawns and parking area at Leeuwenhof untenable from June to October.

    This will be an exciting new offering every Saturday from 09h00 – 14h00 to get fresh produce from local farmers.

    Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

    “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
    brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
    Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
    reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
    spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
    to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
    October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
    Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

    The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
    (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
    the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
    Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
    Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
    decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
    seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

    Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
    Comedy Club.

    Following its recent success to critical acclaim in Johannesburg, the international exhibition ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 and runs throughout the winter school holidays and beyond. This captivating exhibition gives patrons the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of the tomb at their moment of discovery. This amazing adventure begins with a multimedia presentation illustrating the fascinating story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist, Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

    Seen by over five million people worldwide and by over 70,000 visitors in Johannesburg, the exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1,000 exquisitely reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision.  These exact replicas coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material provide a vivid illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these magnificent historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties, and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.  


    The fragile and valuable original artefacts cannot be transported, so this exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the (perfectly replicated) antiquities from King Tut’s tomb - all under one roof.  Brought to South Africa through a partnership with producer SC Exhibitions (Germany), Great World Exhibitions and GrandWest, the exhibition brings the historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way.

    Located in the new “SunExhibits” centre at GrandWest, previously known as the “Magic Castle”, exhibition goers are guided through the exploration “journey” with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide to maximise their experience too.

    • Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets.

    Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.

    Furthermore, for added convenience and ease of access to the exhibition, tickets are sold in dedicated half-hour time slots.

    Visitors may choose when to arrive within the time slot they have selected while booking online or at the exhibition. Once inside the exhibition, visitors are welcome to stay as long as they want within opening hours.


    Hurry, take advantage of the special early bird discounted offer of R20 off ALL ticket prices valid from 2 to 12 June 2015 inclusive. This equates to a further R80 discount on four tickets for moms and dads who purchase the already discounted family package!  GrandWest Most Valued Guest loyalty members can also enjoy R20 off ALL adult ticket prices throughout the duration of the exhibition.

    It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer.  There is a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise.  The fascinating “King Tut” family educational entertainment outing at GrandWest is nothing short of spectacular.

    A firm favourite with children, students and adults of all ages, ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’ opens at GrandWest SunExhibits from 2 June 2015.

    Whether you are fascinated by the wonders of ancient Egypt, a budding Egyptologist, or you simply want to enjoy a fun family outing with a difference, do not miss ‘TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES’. ENDS
