7 January to 13 January

It might be back to work but there’s still lots of play this week!

In entertainment news, the Queen: It’s a Kind of Magic tribute show is at the Grand Arena on Saturday 12th, the Fugard Theatre is screening Julie from the National Theatre Live on Sunday 13th, the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts features The Parlotones on Sunday 13th, and the Galileo Open Air Cinema has four films this week: The Beatles: Eight Days A Week at Kirstenbosch on Wednesday 9th, A Quiet Place at Willowbridge Mall on Thursday 10th, Life Of Pi at Century City on Friday 11th, and Failure To Launch at Rhebokskloof Wine Farm in Paarl on Saturday 12th.

To kickstart your New Year’s resolutions, here’s a guide to the best healthy restaurants in South Africa. But if you’d prefer to cook at home, visit the best organic food shops in Cape Town, including Unpacked Pantry in the southern suburbs and Sans in Sea Point. You can also find something sweet by picking fruit and flowers in and around Cape Town, perhaps at some of the best strawberry-picking farms across the Cape.

Once you’ve fed your body, you can feed your mind at the UCT Summer School, which is offering over one hundred short courses from Monday 7th, all without the stress of entrance requirements or final exams. Also, since the Lion’s Head hiking trail is closed until February, you can also enjoy the great weather with some fun outdoor fitness activities to try this summer. After the holiday season, you might as well start the year on the best possible note!
