Hilton Arts Festival to offer a feast of entertainment

Chuma Sopotela in Karoo Moose.

KZN’s premier arts festival, the 25th annual Hilton Arts Festival will once again be hosted at Hilton College from 15 – 17 September. The festival invites the crème-de-la-crème of what is hot and happening in the creative industries in South Africa: theatre; dance; comedy; musical theatre; family theatre; classical music; music revue; band-music; visual art and crafts, as well as a series of mind-scape lectures, events and discussions.

Among the productions making their way to KZN are Hedwig and the Angry Inch (a scoop from Cape Town) starring Paul du Toit and Genna Galloway. Also not to be missed are the Lara Foot directed, Baxter productions, Karoo Moose and The Inconvenience of Wings, both of which are multi award winning productions.

Comedy lovers will not be disappointed by Mamba Republic; three different stand up shows headlined by John Vlismas, and the irrepressible 2017 version of Raiders – a show that has been a number one hit in Grahamstown for nearly 30 years. Music lovers are well catered for as well.

The Hilton Festival will offer a range of dining options for festival goers again this year. There are two mini festivals embedded in the main programme: The Jongosi Festival embedded in the main festival, takes place on Friday, 15 September and has a specifically, carefully-selected age-appropriate programme aimed at Grades 6 – 10 and Assetej hosts a programme of theatre for young audiences.

The whole programme can be found on www.hiltonfestival.co.za. Bookings can be made online at the Hilton College Theatre box office.
