Best festive markets in the Western Cape (2019)

This episode covers Monday 25 November to Sunday 1 December 2019.

We start with comedy from Nik Rabinowitz at the Baxter Theatre, musicals in Encore at Theatre on the Bay, a symphony with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra at City Hall, and movies at the European Film Festival at Cinema Nouveau. Then, after getting into the holiday spirit with festive markets, The Gift Fair, and the Festive Lights Switch-On, we enjoy bubbly at the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival, brews at the Cape Town Festival of Beer, and good vibes at the Streetopia Festival presented by AfrikaBurn.
