HILTON ARTS TOPS (article first published : 2001-10-2)

This year's Natal Witness Hilton Arts Festival which took place at the picturesque Hilton College from September 21 to 23 was without doubt an incredible success reports Sue Clarence, one of the festival co-organisers.

Ticket sales averaged a phenomenal 95% attendance on the main and 83% attendance on the fringe - demonstrating the festival's remarkable success and ever-growing support base.

“We are thrilled with the outcome,” says Sue, “and incredibly excited that the festival did so very well this year. The attendance was high, the weather was marvellous and the whole festival ran remarkably smoothly and incident-free.

“I’d like to thank publicly all those who contributed towards the festival's success: first and foremost the sponsors without whom the festival would not be able to take place. Credit is also due to the performers and there’s a special thanks to the dedicated, professional and hard working technical staff who worked long days to ensure the high quality of the technical infrastructure in all venues. And not least, thanks to all the patrons who supported the festival so energetically this year.”

The dates for next year's festival have been confirmed. It will take place from September 20 to 22. Those patrons wishing to be kept informed of the festival and events at Hilton can be put on the Hilton Theatre data base by emailing their details to clarence@icon.co.za
