Bookings are now open for the 2021 National Arts Festival’s Makhanda Live curated programme which will be staged live in the Festival’s home town of Makhanda from 8-18 July. All tickets can be bought on the Festival’s website
It’s been an exceptionally challenging 18 months for the arts but the National Arts Festival is cutting its cloth to fit the times with a smaller hybrid Festival that allows audiences the opportunity to access a full programme of theatre, dance, comedy, visual art, music, jazz and more – according to their own preference; online or live.
In Makhanda, the Festival will be staged live in venues across the city with limited audiences and full COVID-19 protocols in place. The Festival is reinventing its format by crossing over into the hybrid space when the Very Big Comedy Show unites live performances in three cities (Cape Town, Johannesburg and Makhanda) via a stream which will be presented online too.
