Chef Matt Manning serves up a two-, three- or five-course brunch every Saturday between ...
Ghost Stories, Free Harley Rides, The Ice-cream King and an Aerobatic Cinema In The Sky
Plus 100 potters in a park and your last chance to see another Kramer classic.
Most of us are taking Friday off to follow Thursday’s holiday, creating the perfect excuse to grab a free morning ride on a Harley-Davidson®. That’s assuming you’re not hungover from seeing nine bands rock out in Kenilworth on Thursday night. A master chef with a penchant for ice-cream is doing a masterclass all week, and Saturday has aerobatics in Stellenbosch and the last showing of another Kramer classic at the Fugard. There’s more, so we encourage you to read on.
