Events for Gamers, Bikers, Runners and Lovers of Outdoor Movies and Music this November

Lots to do outdoors and a niche event for gamers at the Castle of Good Hope

Last updated: 14 November 2018

Gamers and developers can geek out at Playtopia, South Africa’s first indie gaming and interactive arts festival. There will be games, art, panel discussions and workshops. Bike riders and their friends and family can support this year's Cape Town Toy Run for charity. November is also the start of two beloved summer series: the Galileo Open Air Cinema and the Kirstenbosch Summer Concert Series.

GET COSY AT THE CINEMA UNDER THE STARS
If the idea of cuddling up under the stars while watching a movie, munching popcorn and intermittently gazing at gorgeous surrounds appeals to you, then best you book your spot to watch your favourite movie at one of The Galileo Open Air Cinemas. Every week, cinephiles can grab some popcorn (or other tasty gourmet treats from the vendors on site), settle down on the lush lawns at Kirstenbosch Gardens, the V&A Waterfront's Battery Park, and various venues in Cape Town and the Cape Winelands to see firm favourites, cult classics and many others. 


Price: From R89 at Webtickets If the show sells out online, no tickets will be available at the door. Varied locations in Cape Town and surrounds | +27 (0)71 471 8728

BIKERS DOING GOOD FOR KIDS
Every year Capetonians in Harley-Davidsons and Ducatis collect teddies and toys, strap them to their bikes and ride through Cape Town for charity. Cape Town Toy Run has collected 17 079 toys and donated them to over 500 orphanages, hospitals and needy communities. It also almost didn’t happen because in the past few years the event has been running at a loss. To help keep the event running there is now an entry fee of R30 for spectators (riders get in free). Kurt Schoonraad will be performing live and there will be plenty of food stalls. On Sunday 18 November, take the family to support the Cape Town Toy Run

Price: Registration and tickets at Quicket Entry to the event area is R30, and children under 12 enter for free.
