Plett Arts Festival next month
he Plett Food & Film Festival will once again be part of the Plett Arts Festival which is set to take place from June 30 to July 22.
PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS - Plettenberg Bay will be warding off the winter chills with a red-hot winter programme in the form of the Plett Arts Festival from next month.
The three-week celebration, which starts on June 30 and runs until July 22, is set to include music, drama, comedy, art exhibitions, food, award-winning films and much more.
The festival will celebrate a variety of different art forms and is set to bring innovative and “challenging works to a diverse audience”.
Local artists will also have the opportunity to showcase their work during the festival through the “Every Thursday” gallery meander, which will take place throughout the festival period.
Now in its fourth year, the event has showcased more than a hundred artists, with attendance growing every year. Last year, almost 2 000 people made their way to the various events.
One of the highlights of the festival is the Plett Food & Film Festival at the White House Venue in the town centre. The fourth edition of the festival – a first of its kind in Africa, showcasing world-class films that explore food and everything that goes along with it – will be taking place between July 10 and 12 this year.
To add to the experience, these films are then followed by gourmet culinary presentations, linked to the film. The event attracts various food and film celebrities each year and this year the guest celebrity Jenny Morris will share her knowledge with festivalgoers.
Residents and visitors can also look forward to the Plett Fringe Festival featuring comedian Nik Rabinowitz on June 30 and July 1 at the White House Venue. Another highlight on the programme is the Plett Choirs event which is set to showcase local gospel talent.
The Plett Country Fair at The Yard on July 1 and 2 will also provide entertainment for the entire family including arts, crafts, food, games and other activities.
There will also be a Plett Sunset Concert Series at Central Beach every Friday, Saturday and Sunday between June 30 and July 16.
Once again the Plett Literary Liaison event will be on the winter programme and this year will feature Ian Sinclair and The Search for the Rarest Bird in the World with exquisite bird sculptures by local bronze artist Robert Leggat on July 14 at the White House.
