Cape Town Events

April is always a great month for events in Cape Town and 2013 is looking to better than most. I’ve put together a list of events that I’m most excited about, it’s by no means exhaustive and I’ll likely update it as I come across events that I’ve missed but I’m really looking forward to next month.


April 1 – 13: A Handful of Keys

Cape Town EventsThis is my favourite show EVER – I’ve watched it 3 times and for me the combination of piano-playing prowess and comic genius make this show completely entertaining and inspiring to watch. This year the team is Ian von Memerty and Jonathan Roxmouth, and it’s on at Theatre on the Bay. You can book tickets online:


April 7: Johnny Clegg is performing at Kirstenbosch

Kirstenbosch concerts have to be the best way to spend a Sunday evening and the 2012/2013 summer season ends on a high note with a concert by Johnny Clegg; book your tickts online here:

April 26 – 28: SA Cheese Festival

Cape Town EventsI’m really excited for this one! Described as a gourmet adventure, the SA Cheese Festival brings together cheese makers from all over the country. The festival is being hosted at Sandringham (about halfway between Cape Town and Paarl). Remember to book your tickets online at, they’re not available at the door!
