The Hermanus Times Kalfiefees, which traditionally takes place over the Women’s Day long weekend, is back for the 19th time with an excellent programme of acclaimed theatre productions, music performances, book discussions, children’s entertainment and an art exhibition from 8 – 11 August. 

The main venues for the Kalfiefees events are the De Wet Hall in Onrus, the Sandbaai Hall and the Municipal Auditorium in Hermanus. Tickets are available from Computicket and at the Festival Office next to the De Wet Hall in Onrus. Tickets can also be purchased in cash at the door, provided that particular show has not been sold out. Tickets can also be booked online at www.kalfiefees-hermanus.co.za.

The festival hub will be at a new venue this year, the Hemel-en-Aarde Brewery in Hemel-en-Aarde Village, which is conveniently situated at the Sandbaai intersection, halfway between Onrus and Hermanus. Here festivalgoers will be able to find refuge when the weather is inhospitable and there will be more than enough to eat and drink between shows. Live music by local performers will add to the festive ambience and on Saturday, Whale Coast FM will be broadcasting live from the brewery.

Although the Kalfiefees is primarily an Afrikaans festival, there will be more than enough for English-speaking folk to enjoy. After all, music speaks a universal language and this year’s festival offers several not-to-be-missed performances. Enjoy!
