2022 Festival

The National Arts Festival returns to its home in Makhanda after a two year gap! 2022 includes everything that has made the festival a highlight of the South African cultural calendar. It has been some time since we gathered in this way, and as everyone knows, some things have had to change. With that in mind, here are a few pointers for NAF2022.

  • We are operating at 50% capacity, so shows will sell out quicker than usual. If there's a show you absolutely must attend, be sure to book early.
  • There is no printed programme this year - information about all the shows and exhibitions can be found on the website.
  • Bookings can be done through the website and there are Ticket Offices at the Monument and The Village Green.
  • Water continues to be a challenge in Makhanda. Please use this precious resource sparingly and speak to your accommodation provider about what measures they have in place to manage water on their premises.
