PLETTENBERG BAY ENTERTAINMENT NEWS - The popular annual Plett Arts Festival is back on track for 2021 after the sixth instalment of the event was forced to go virtual last year as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and related restrictions.
Themed "Expect the Unexpected", the festival - which celebrates the finer things in life - is set to take place between 10 and 20 July.
Plettenberg Bay Tourism chief executive Patty Butterworth said this year's festival is geared to put Plett attractions, restaurants and "secret gardens" centre stage. Organisers said performances and exhibitions would take place in "unexpected places".
"Opportunities to explore and [seek] adventure in the wild and at the same time [celebrate] the arts, are an exhilarating experimental aspect of the festival," Butterworth said.
She added that though the venues will be interesting, the artists will still enjoy the spotlight on "these amazing stages".
Back on the programme is the Plett Winter School, which was first introduced in 2018. This involves teaching young and old about various art disciplines. "Bring your old dog and learn some new tricks," said Butterworth.
The programme will also include an array of entertainment, food and drink as well as art exhibitions, street festivals, performances, film screenings and wine.
Bookings are set to open on Quicket on 10 June.
To keep festinos safe, strict Covid-19 regulations will apply, including limited capacity at events, wearing of masks, sanitising, well-ventilated venues and online ticketing. For more information, visit www.pletttourism.com.
