My Father's Coat

My Father's Coat is being performed at Camps Bay High School on 26th September - all profits are being donated to Ladles of Love soup kitchens.

@Ladles of Love‎

This unique show is always booked out months advance so this is a really great opportunity, and it's a wonderful way to support our kitchens and help feed more people.

My Father's Coat is the acclaimed new story by Michael Charton - the realisation of his decade-long ambition to make the incredible story of South Africa more accessible. For Michael’s belief is that our past, notwithstanding the trauma, holds within it great powers of unity.

This is South African history as it has never been told: An emotional and provocative story tracking two-hundred tumultuous years through the eyes of five, inter-connected and controversial protagonists: Mzilikazi, Kruger, Rhodes, Smuts and Mandela.

A beautifully crafted story providing new order and meaning to our notoriously complex past, at a time when our history has never been more relevant.

This particular performance is in partnership with Ladles of Love – all profits from the ticket sales will be donated to this charity who work to feed vulnerable people across Cape Town. They currently serve more than 2000 meals each week to the homeless community and to struggling schools.

Your ticket includes a welcome drink, snacks and ofcourse access to an amazing show.

    • R250 - Ticket Cost

Clubbers Campout are excited to launch their all new spin off event brought to you by the same minds that birthed Clubbers Campout over 5 years ago. The new event aims to bring all the elements of the original campouts to a 1 day event at the start of summer in the heart of Cape Town!

@Clubbers Campout

Bring your meat, salads, camp chairs, cooler box and that legendary Clubbers Campout spirit for a day of braaing, swimming and jamming along to a selection of Cape Town’s most consistent Club and Events DJs covering multiple genres from 2pm till 2am.

It’s all going down at the Oude Molen Eco Village off Alexandra Road in Pinelands. This centrally situated venue offers green grass, clean ablution facilities, safe parking, a swimming pool, shaded lapas and an awesome view of Table Mountain.

There will be a communal braai area so there will be no need for wood or charcoal to be brought along. A fully licensed bar will provide the essentials you need to keep yourself cool including chasers and ice.

The pool is a GLASS FREE area and will have a lifeguard on duty but please swim responsibly! Safety is always our highest priority, so strict security will be on the lookout for any potential party spoilers and maintain a strict Right of Admission Policy.

You are welcome to bring your own spirits, shooters, wines, chasers & ice. STRICTLY NO BEERS OR CIDERS – PLASTIC CUPS are recommended.
