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

    The legendary Delheim Wine Estate is offering avid foragers two ex-cep-tional weekends of wild mushroom hunts in its private forest, for enthusiasts to unearth theses elusive, seasonal delicacies and revel in fungi spotting excitement on 30 - 31 May 2015 and 3 - 4 July 2015.

    These foraging excursions are led by Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary Goldman, a seasoned field expert and mushroom cultivator, and will see intimate groups setting foot for a magical ‘walk on the wild side’, in search of these delicious gems, lurking right there under one’s nose. The whole idea is for visitors to hone their foraging feelers and become comfortable in picking their own mushrooms, whilst embracing the lost art of seasonal foraging.

    After an exhilarating morning, engaging in ‘the silent hunt’ amidst towering pine trees and indigenous flora, foragers will be rewarded with a mushroom-inspired three-course lunch in the historic Vat Cellar which promises to leave the taste buds euphoric.

    “No one should fear the fungi! I will give a short lecture on edible and poisonous mushrooms before we trot off into the forest, so that you know how to identify the good, the bad and the ugly and really enjoy this magical spot at Delheim. There are old mushroom hunters and there are bold mushroom hunters, but there are no bold, old mushroom hunters,” shares Gary who goes by the moniker The Mushroom Hunter.

    “Most mushroom pickers are very tight-lipped about the whereabouts of their sources so this is a golden opportunity,” adds an elated Gary who can spot a camouflaged porcini in no time.

    “Mushrooms simmering in garlic butter are one of my all-time favourite smells and evoke fond childhood memories. It is just so much more rewarding if you know where it came from...and even better so if you have foraged it yourself,” adds Nora who grew up on the farm and learned to pick wild mushrooms from her mother.       

    There are only 40 spots available per day as Delheim treasures a delicate balance between sharing their ‘family passion’ and protecting their natural habitat.

    This exploration of the hidden world of the fungi starts at 10am.

    Cost: R595 per person

    A ticket includes a choice of an exclusive mushroom foraging basket or a Delheim bottle of wine and two glasses to take home; the insightful lecture on mushroom identification; the forest forage, as well as the mushroom-themed three course lunch and a glass of Delheim wine.

    Pre-booking is essential and given the intimate nature of these events, no group bookings are allowed.

    For more information or to secure your spot contact +27 (0)21 888 4607 / +27 (0)79 7353 257 or send an email to restaurant@delheim.com.

    Delheim was the originator of the now-popular concept of fungi foraging events in the country and has since definitely managed to raise awareness for mushroom foraging in South Africa. Although these events take place at the time of year when there is the largest chance of finding wild mushrooms and the ‘moon is right’, Delheim cannot guarantee that you will find any on the day.

    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

    The legendary Delheim Wine Estate is offering avid foragers two ex-cep-tional weekends of wild mushroom hunts in its private forest, for enthusiasts to unearth theses elusive, seasonal delicacies and revel in fungi spotting excitement on 30 - 31 May 2015 and 3 - 4 July 2015.

    These foraging excursions are led by Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary Goldman, a seasoned field expert and mushroom cultivator, and will see intimate groups setting foot for a magical ‘walk on the wild side’, in search of these delicious gems, lurking right there under one’s nose. The whole idea is for visitors to hone their foraging feelers and become comfortable in picking their own mushrooms, whilst embracing the lost art of seasonal foraging.

    After an exhilarating morning, engaging in ‘the silent hunt’ amidst towering pine trees and indigenous flora, foragers will be rewarded with a mushroom-inspired three-course lunch in the historic Vat Cellar which promises to leave the taste buds euphoric.

    “No one should fear the fungi! I will give a short lecture on edible and poisonous mushrooms before we trot off into the forest, so that you know how to identify the good, the bad and the ugly and really enjoy this magical spot at Delheim. There are old mushroom hunters and there are bold mushroom hunters, but there are no bold, old mushroom hunters,” shares Gary who goes by the moniker The Mushroom Hunter.

    “Most mushroom pickers are very tight-lipped about the whereabouts of their sources so this is a golden opportunity,” adds an elated Gary who can spot a camouflaged porcini in no time.

    “Mushrooms simmering in garlic butter are one of my all-time favourite smells and evoke fond childhood memories. It is just so much more rewarding if you know where it came from...and even better so if you have foraged it yourself,” adds Nora who grew up on the farm and learned to pick wild mushrooms from her mother.       

    There are only 40 spots available per day as Delheim treasures a delicate balance between sharing their ‘family passion’ and protecting their natural habitat.

    This exploration of the hidden world of the fungi starts at 10am.

    Cost: R595 per person

    A ticket includes a choice of an exclusive mushroom foraging basket or a Delheim bottle of wine and two glasses to take home; the insightful lecture on mushroom identification; the forest forage, as well as the mushroom-themed three course lunch and a glass of Delheim wine.

    Pre-booking is essential and given the intimate nature of these events, no group bookings are allowed.

    For more information or to secure your spot contact +27 (0)21 888 4607 / +27 (0)79 7353 257 or send an email to restaurant@delheim.com.

    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

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

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

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    Judith Sephuma is a multi-award winner and an artist of international standard. With Five studio albums, Two live DVD’s and two Live albums including a gospel album that has sold to a gold status and multi-platinum selling albums, she continues to impress the world with her talent and versatility performing for thousands of fans around the world including her recent travels to sold out shows in Europe, the US and the UK.

    It is now four years since the release of her Jazz album “I am a Living Testimony”. Judith has recently found inspiration to return back to the studio to record her Sixth studio album in what she describes as a very serene, peaceful and calm City, the City of Cape Town. ‘It was so much fun getting back in studio again after spending so much time travelling and live performing”
    This new album titled “ONE WORD” has allowed me to choose music that allows me to enjoy myself and have fun, but more so to allow my fans that have been very loyal through the years to enjoy themselves” Judith describes this album “ONE WORD” as a Funky Afro Jazz Album. I believe we are creative so I created a title that can describe this particular album”.
    She has worked with songwriters from South Africa, Congo, Mozambique and Los Angeles.

    Songs like JOY which is her first single from the album “ONE WORD”, a song that she wrote and describes as very groovy and funky. BELINDA sung in Lingala is a love song that will speak to many’s heart. A beautiful sing along even though a few might not understand what the meaning of the song is but will be pulled in by the warmth, sultriness of her voice and beauty of the song, MBOTE which is also sung in Lingala, a greeting, a song of unity.
    CRAZY and WAITING are written by a close friend, Ernie Smith, also very vibrant songs that will appeal to many. Guti is sung in Portuguese and mainly talks about the importance of Knowledge and education written by another talented friend, Jaco Maria and Lucas Khumalo.

    One of her favorite song is GLORY, a funky Rock song written by Joey Williams, a very talented drummer from L.A who is a member of his own band Circle View and has worked with Frank McComb, Bobby Brown, BBD to name a few...this song will get everyone singing along especially on her live shows.
    This album is produced by a very talented pianist, Mark Goliath. “I believe I made the best decision by choosing Mark, I have worked with him for many years while I was still living in Cape Town. I believe I made the perfect choice to have him produce ONE WORD”
    This album “ONE WORD” has songs sung in Sepedi, Zulu, Lingala, Portuguese and English. It is a crossover of what you know as Judith Sephuma and what you are about to discover about this versatile and talented singer.

    WHY “ONE WORD”? She simply says, “All songs for the first time have one word as titles. Nothing serious”

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    The Cape Town-based multi-instrumental jazz collective Kesivan and The Lights is one of the best-kept secrets in South African music. Although still considered to be modern jazz, the quintet's sound boasts a litany of influences from from funk and South African roots music to hip-hop.

    The band consists of three previous winners of the Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Jazz, one of South Africa's leading musical accolades. The eclectic lineup includes drummer, founder, and bandleader Kesivan Naidoo, who is also the owner of the Cape Town jazz bar Straight No Chaser, which has gone a long way towards revitalizing the city's jazz scene.
    Composer and double bassist Shane Cooper is one of the leading voices in South Africa's new wave of jazz artists. He champions a brand of music categorized by improvisation and lucidity; his award-winning album Oscillations has cemented his place as one of South African jazz's most beloved acts. Saxophonist Justin Bellairs is one of the most active and sought after musicians in the South African jazz scene, having appeared on several albums both as a featured artist and as a session musician. Pianist KyleShepherd has already released three critically acclaimed records, all of which have earned him South African Music Award nominations.

    The lineup of Kesivan and The Lights is completed by guitarist Reza Khota, whose playing can be best described as experimental. His flirtations and interests in South Asian sounds, classical music, and the avant-garde has helped nourish the music made by the group with a uniquely global perspective that also remains locally relevant.

    Kesivan and The Lights is an outfit that takes pride in recollection with songs often based on the history of South Africa and the memories of its people. Its sound is defined by a lush, cathartic, melodicism that owes its roots to a mixture of composition and improvisation. The group is also known for its high energy inventiveness when performing live, a mode in which the members erode the melancholic and often make way for a stronger, more aggressive sound-a brand of music that attempts to exorcise the demons of the past.

    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

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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.

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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.

    Dinner cirque theatre company and restaurant group Madame Zingara recently celebrated their birthday, commemorating fourteen years since their original Loop Street restaurant opened. Along with the Theatre of Dreams, the restaurant group now operates six city based restaurants, a retail outlet as well as a laundromat, painting Madame Zingara as somewhat of a Capetonian institution.

    Along with the festivities came the venue announcement for their highly anticipated upcoming tour, “The Celebration”, having just signed a deal with the City of Cape Town granting them use of the Grand Parade, giving the group plenty of reason to celebrate.

    “The City supports the tourism value of this event that will potentially attract many visitors to the city to enjoy this show. The economic spin-offs of events that attract domestic and international visitors hold enormous benefits for the city and its residents. The ripple effect by way of job creation and the increased visitor spending in the city, coupled with the need for local associated services that benefit directly from these events, are all a welcome injection into the local economy,” says Councillor Bloor.

    This comes only 6 months after the group reopened the Company’s Garden Restaurant, further cementing their relationship with the city.

    The Celebration,  which honours the group’s fifteenth year, promises to be their biggest production to date, with a custom build three story mirrored tent due to be shipped in from Belgium especially. “We are beyond ecstatic to be hosting the Celebration at such an iconic Cape Town landmark,” says Madame Zingara founder and MD, Richard Griffin. “This city is my heart and soul and to be given the opportunity to partner with the CCID, the Cape Town Partnership and the City of Cape Town on this incredible production is a real honour.”

    The event will launch on Tuesday, 7 July 2015 this year, with tickets due to go on sale on Monday, 11 May 2015,  and will be touring for 12 weeks in Cape Town, their shortest season to date.

    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

    Zoe Modiga was born Palesa Nomthandazo Phumelele Modiga in Overport, Durban and raised in Pietermaritzburg. Her love for music at a very young age encouraged her to attend the National School of the Arts in Braamfontein, Johannesburg where she studied classical piano, clarinet and vocals. Her time at the school provided an excellent platform to pursue music as a passion and career in her later years. She is currently completing her degree in jazz vocals at the South African College of Music, UCT.

    Over the past few years, with some experience behind her, this singer-songwriter’s talent has opened a number of doors in the music industry. Zoe has been fortunate enough to be part of celebrated festivals such as the Aardklop Festival, Artscape Youth Jazz Festival, UCT Jazz Festival, Joy of Jazz and The Cape Town International Jazz Festival. On these respected platforms she has had the privilege of sharing stages with the likes of Gloria Bosman, Matthew Gold, The Kiffness, Breakfast Included, the Frank Paco Art Ensemble, Mark Fransman, Sibusiso Dhlamini, Marcus Wyatt, Benjamin Jephta, Tshepo Tsotetsi and many more.

    Despite sharing the stage with a number of performers, Zoe’s pursuit for her own identity became a strong force in these collaborations. She aspires to pursue a multifaceted career where her singing, songwriting and performing is challenged, revered, inspired and influential.
