50 Shades of Fairytales @ Drama Factory – 9 to10 August 2019

We start learning about fairytales and happily-ever-after before we can even walk. Then we grow up. Some of us wonder what ever happened to the fairytales and some of us never believed in them in the first place. This whimsical and quirky song revue depicts the journey of two women (both played by Titilayo Adedokun) who evolve through their personal experiences of love, its challenges and its consequences. A collection of witty and thought-provoking songs that will leave you laughing, crying and oh-so identifying with the characters.

Developed and performed by: Titilayo Adedokun
Directed by: Heike Brunner
Runtime: 60mins

Celebrate International Cat Day @Cat Heaven Rescue Cat Café & Gift Shop In Somerset West

In honour of International Cat Day (which is celebrated annually on 8th August), Cat Heaven invites cat lovers to join their “cat-spirational” celebratory event.

Cat lovers are invited to spend the day with 20 beautiful cats and celebrate their rescue from the shelter. As South Africa’s first Rescue Cat Cafe, our mission is to bring awareness to abandoned and abused cats/animals, to encourage the public to “rather adopt than shop”. Cats are not toys. They have a heart, a soul and feel pain and joy as we humans do. In the month of July, patrons of the Rescue Cafe can bring a picture of their own cat and it will be displayed in the indoor cafe. In turn you will receive a number for the lucky draw on the 9th August 2019.

1st prize – a voucher to the value of R600 for a meal for two at Henri’s Restaurant in Somerset West. 2nd and 3rd prizes – gifts to the value of R200 for your lucky cat. Winners must be present at the time of the draw.

Please note no children under the age of 6 are allowed inside the Rescue Café. Coffee, tea, soft drinks, cakes, cookies, biltong, popcorn and Pedal Pops will be on sale. Guests will be able to browse in the paw-some cat-inspired gift shop.

When: Friday 9th August between 10h00 and 14h00. Lucky draw @ 12h00

Where: Cat Heaven Rescue Cat Café (non-profit organisation), 35 Bright Street, Somerset West

Cost: R20 per head donation towards the upkeep of the rescued resident cats at Cat Heaven Rescue Cat Café.

Bubbles and Bliss @ Bakenhof

Bubbles & Bliss 2019 will take place at the newly renovated Bakenhof Wineland venue on the 10th of August 2019 – an extended celebration of Women’s Day on the 9th of August 2019.  Bubbles and Bliss 2018 was a culmination of top-tier service providers in the wedding and entertainment industries that generously gave their time and expertise to make the event a success. More than R25000 was raised for Project Dignity and Subz pads to distribute sanitary wear with the help of Stellenbosch Child Welfare association.

With this, the relationship with Stellenbosch Child Welfare association blossomed, and Bubbles & Bliss are incredibly excited to raise funds for their “We Care” project in 2019.

This year’s cause: The Child Welfare Association of Stellenbosch has a project called “We care”, this is part of of their “Eye on the Child” services – this year Bubbles and Bliss will be raising funds for this great project.

Spoegwolf @ Stellenbosch Stadsaal – 8 August 2019

Spoegwolf, collaboration with Stellenbrau and KWV Brandy presents: Spoegwolf, Herman Kleinhans and Uncle Spike live in the one-and-only Stellenbosch Stadsaal.

Earlier this year the band made the momentous achievement of being the first Afrikaans band to reach the number one spot on Apple Music. One of the hardest working bands in the industry, Spoegwolf’s music is a thought-provoking listening experience. It challenges and delights anyone who listens to the band’s music. With their intelligent lyrics and rich sound, Spoegwolf have all the ingredients necessary to make their music stand out from what is available in the current Afrikaans market.
