Rugby Legends, Art, Iron and Angolan Lambada

Plus head out to a festival where winter isn’t welcome

Start the weekend with a Spanish lunch or vegan dinner on Friday and kickstart the weekend with a good meal.

If you’re in an arty mood, there’s an iron exhibition at the Waterfront by one of SA’s leading artistic blacksmiths and a garden filled with sculptures near Stellenbosch by a local art veteran.

Alternatively, you can learn to sexy dance like an Angolan and if winter has you in its icy grips, there’s a festival that has all the ingredients to get you out of it. There’s that, there’s more and if you get ahead of yourself, there are things for next weekend too.

BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST
The countdown to Ben Harper
Catch eclectic American  singer/songwriter Ben Harper with guest performers the Soweto Gospel Choir and a local opening act at GrandWest. You can score a ticket on us by booking here to buy three and get one free. Plus learn more about the artist get in the mood for Ben Harper Live In SA.
