6 May to 12 May

May means music, moms, and more in this week’s event guide!

After last week’s three theatre highlights, here are three more: Non-Specific at Gate69, Kunene and the King at the Fugard Theatre, and Silkworm at Alexander Upstairs. You can also hear musicians from the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra at Erin Hall on Saturday 11th or poet Toni Stuart singing our mothers’ songs the same night.

Indeed, there are plenty of ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in and around Cape Town, including Mother’s Day restaurant specials for Sunday 12th, the family-friendly Nuy Valley Festival on Saturday 11th, as well as the Wade Bales Wine and Malt Whisky Affair on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th.

After all that indulging, you can treat your body in a different way at the Chase the Sun workout pop-up hosted by Women’s Health on Saturday 11th. There are also plenty of ways to unwind at one of the best spas in Cape Town and the winelands as well as wellness courses, experiences and retreats. Let the bliss begin!
