20 August to 26 August

This week’s event guide hits all the right notes!

In entertainment news, Tap Dogs starts at the Grand Arena on Wednesday 22nd while music news features several great choices this week: Karen Zoid at Ellerman House on Thursday 23rd; the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra at City Hall on Thursday 23rd; the Stellenbosch City Orchestra in Somerset West on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th; the Sunflower Music Festival on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th; and the Hugo Lambrechts Concerto Festival on Sunday 26th.

After our exploration of Green Point and Constantia over the last two weeks, we now turn our attention somewhere in-between, with a guide to the best restaurants in the southern suburbs, three next-level dining ideas in Newlands, and details on the new Culture Club Cheese at the Josephine Mill. There’s also more to savour and sip on at the Simonsig Vintage Day in Stellenbosch and the Vodka Festival in Durbanville, both on Saturday 25th.  

Further afield, the McGregor Poetry Festival runs from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th. And if you’re up for more of a trip, here’s a guide to the best eco cabins in the Cape. You can also enjoy some of the best luxury camping sites or best regular camping sites if you’d prefer to rough it out instead. Whatever works for you, we’re here to make sure you get access to the best!
