In the meantime, there are some great events that you should not miss this week. Those in the Western Cape can be delighted with A Handful of Keys, which is directed by Ian Von Memerty and is a hot-pot of music, comedy and twenty talented fingers two-stepping across the ivories.  The Taste of Cape Town 2009 is an amazing four-day celebration of fine food and drink, with 18 of Cape town’s top restaurants and chefs serving a stunning selection of starter-sized signature dishes to visitors. This is an opportunity too good to miss.  There is also the 10th Annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival, which has grown into a hugely successful international event since its launch in 2000.

In the North West, Legends of Soul is a music concert featuring  Dennis Edwards, the Bluenotes and the Jaziel Brothers. This show is on 4 April at Sun City, while Stars in Your Eyes, featuring Danny Fisher, the impersonator, vocalist extroadinaire and rubber-faced comedian, is still showing until the end of May.

The Kosmos Fees is the premiere art festival in Mpumalanga, with live music performances on the main stage and excellent theatre shows in the Teatertent. Ligwalagwala FM is celebrating its 27th birthday, and is doing so with a bang! A gospel festival will be the celebration tool, and Rebecca Malope will perform, as well as other artists such as Solly Moholo, Hlengiwe Mhlaba, Lundi Tyamara, Tshepiso Motaung and Sipho Makhabane. There is also the Nedbank Matha Series in Middelburg for those who feel like some exercise.

The Little Shop of Horrors will take KwaZulu-Natal by storm, telling the tale of a hapless New York florist’s assistant who at first unknowingly rears a man-eating alien plant. South Africa’s funniest Hinnian O’, Kevin Peters, will entertain for two hours of comedy as he becomes Michael Naiker for a few days this April at The Heritage Theatre, while the Shoppex 2009 will be a veritable shopper’s paradise, and will provide shopping and entertainment for the whole family. The Zulu Jazz Lounge is also hosting the eThekwini Easter Fashion Showcase this month.easter

If you don’t know what to do in Gauteng, you have lots of options: there is the Sanlam Fashion Week from 2 April, and those who are thinking of starting their own business can get some inspiration from the International Franchise and Entrepreneurial Expo. The Cooksisters, a delicious new satirical comedy, is on until 18 April, and the Rand Show will delight everyone as usual with its Easter specials. The Joburg Easter Festival should also not be missed, and the Joburg Art Fair is ideal for art lovers!

I hope that everyone finds something that they would like to attend by having a look at our website, www.eventsnow.co.za. Please remember that we would love to hear about your experience! Let us know! And enjoy the week!
