FESTIVAL ONLINE (article first published : 2002-06-11)

Planning a trip to the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown has now become a lot easier with www.MyZone.co.za, a South African web portal. This has launched a comprehensive online guide to the National Arts Festival, ensuring easily accessible information to the various shows, exhibitions that are taking place and accommodation availability.

"The site contains complete information on main shows and fringe shows - including brief descriptions, performance dates and venues," says festival director Lynette Marais. "In addition, the site includes details on the Winter School, exhibitions, accommodation possibilities, travel arrangements and festival pointers."

Designed to load quickly, she says the site encourages director and actor collaboration, with a section that enables participants to publish any new reviews or even last-minute changes to the show schedule." She says new information about shows is updated on a daily basis, keeping the discerning NAF visitor informed.

Regarding the fringe show schedule, potential NAF visitors will be able to set out a printable schedule of their show schedule on the myZone NAF site," adds Marais. "The booking kit is also available on the MyZone site."

The National Arts Festival is sponsored by the Eastern Cape Government, Standard Bank and the National Arts Council, with support from Shamwari Game Reserve.

Booking for the 2002 National Arts Festival opens at Computicket nationwide on 13 May. For more information visit the NAF Zone on myZone, visit www.myzone.co.za and click on "National Arts Festival".
