NOTTINGHAM ROAD PINK FESTIVAL (article first published : 2006-10-23)

The KwaZulu-Natal hills will come alive from November 24 to 26 when Nottingham Road hosts its first annual “Pink Festival”.

Presented by The Nottingham Road Tourism and Information Centre, in association with Very Very Big Productions, visitors can expect a weekend of extravagance, music, theatre, dance and magical meandering!

The line-up of shows includes a fun Hoe Down with Lance James; Roctails by Rocco de Villiers; KickStart’s production of Art and Red Hot and Blue, starring Karen Van Pletsen.

Youngsters will be delighted by the performances of Tokoloshe Come and Go starring Liam Magner and Jacobus van Heerden; Chasing Rainbows starring David Gouldie and Angela Lardant, and Grandpa Grump and his Magical Junk Shop starring Bryan Hiles.

Also expect some fine music from Melanie Lowe and Christopher Duigan, as well as fine food, wine, beer and art.

And if you were wondering about the preoccupation with pink, remember that fashionistas have proclaimed pink to be the “new black”. Having surpassed its pre-conceived sexual stereotypes, the colour pink is now boldly worn by the most macho of men.

Even trend-setter Picasso fell in love with the subtle hue and enjoyed his very own “pink period” – a time when his work was inspired by theatre and magical circus adventures. So why not follow the famed artist’s lead by diving into drama, dousing yourself with culture and celebrating the countryside?

And, in keeping with the fine traditions of the Midlands Meander, the festival is by no means exclusively for the “pink set” - it will also offer children’s shows, horse rides, hiking trails and a visual feast of arts and crafts.
