CULTIVARIA (article first published : 2007-06-18)

The Cultivaria festival in Paarl exploded onto the local entertainment calendar in 2006 and set a new benchmark when the inaugural festival recorded the highest occupancy statistics of any arts festival in the country. Cultivaria kicks off this year with the Bovril Black Tie Dinner Table hosted in Paarl Main Road on September 20.

From September 21 to 24 the historic Boland town will become a cultural hub with 100 productions staged in 11 different venues. The multilingual productions cover a wide spectrum of entertainment genres from drama, dance and music.

The musical kaleidoscope provide a variety that will suit any music lover ranging from popular music, rock, jazz to classical and instrumental performances and musical extravaganzas. Art lovers can look forward to the FNB Private Clients Wine & Art Route that will feature 100 top artists at 14 galleries within a four-km stretch.

The Heinz Food Emporium at the Faurč stadium will be a paradise for gourmets and lovers of fine food and wine as local restaurants and wineries will be represented. The latest addition to Cultivaria is the state-of-the-art Heinz/Food & Home Food Theatre where celebrity chefs will present food demonstrations throughout the festival. Even children have been catered for with the Safari Children's Theatre offering a jam-packed programme of entertainment as well as childcare facilities and strict security.

Bookings for productions, shows, restaurants and accommodation can only be done on the website www.cultivaria.com Only credit card payments will be accepted.
