Monsters, Superheroes, Eco-warriors and Tai chi

Plus sample all the cheese you can in Stellenbosch

Your bank balance is replenished and you’re in a devilishly adventurous mood. But save your money for other things that matter, because we have your weekend sorted, cheap cheap.

Catch monsters at the Cape Town Stadium, or see Superheroes at the CTICC. There’s eco friendliness at opposite ends of the Mother City with a beach run and tree planting escapade. You can also discover how Tai chi is both self defence and immune defence and hear some Broadway classics in Milnerton. This and more coming on the weekend.

#Pickoftheweek: Five Tons Of Fun
Saturday
Forget Godzilla, the greatest monsters in the world are coming to Cape Town and they’re back flipping, booze-drinking, driving fast, looking flash monster trucks. Get in asap for Monster Jam.

2. Meet SA’s Batman Comic Writer
Friday and Saturday
Did you know that there are Saffers working on some of the biggest comic books in the world? Plus there are tons of local superhero comics, writers, artists and of course, cosplay at FanCon 2019.


3. Run, Clean and Win Some Wood
Sunday
Tired of dirty beaches? Sick of being unfit? Bored of getting the same brass medal everytime you finish a race? Get down to Blouberg for an evening run on the beach. Pick up litter while you do it and earn a special prize. Find out how you can do this at the Plastic Free Oceans Beach Series.


4. A New Arbour Day
Saturday and Sunday
When it comes to plants, local is definitely lekker. This is why the community from the Deep South are coming out to eradicate alien vegetation, and plant local trees. There will also be a petition to save the Amazon Rainforest at Earth Day Kommetjie.


5. Not Just Self-defence
Saturday
Most people would send their kids to learn Tai chi to avoid being bullied at school. But did you know that this martial art has health benefits … and is not just linked to physical activity. Discover these and so much more at the Tai chi and Qigong Day


6. Broadway Comes to Milnerton 
Saturday
Discover the classics of prolific Broadway songwriter Cole Porter in a show that started off as a home performance, but is now hitting the stage. For one night only at the Milnerton Playhouse, see Let’s Do It.


7. Sing the Blues and Shoot The Brie’s
Friday–Sunday
A festival so cheesy they actually named it cheese. Don’t get it? Nevermind, just make your way to Stellenbosch for all the cheese you can handle at the SA Cheese Festival
