Tune into ETV’s morning show in collaboration with Printing SA who are showcasing the importance of the printing and packaging industry in a humorous yet real life setting. Without the printing industry printing things like books and study materials, reading, studying and the advancement of education could be hard. Very hard! Just imagine being in class where you are asked to turn to page 12 and the page is blank, and not only that page but the entire text book. So what happens now? For the vast majority of South Africa’s younger generation, books will remain the pathway to learning. Data is expensive and, particularly in rural areas, access to the internet is extremely limited and unreliable.

The latest pole dance showcase to hit the annual calendar in Cape Town is The Pole Project’s A Feast of Flight, a non-verbal theatrical production with 2018 being only the second in a series of modernised childhood stories and fairy tales pinned for future events. The first of its kind, A Feast of Flight 2017 took place at the Nassau Centre in Newlands in late July. The theme of year one was a contemporary play on Lewis Caroll’s famous Alice in Wonderland, where we followed Alistair down a rabbit hole of dubious choices and bad influences until eventually he slayed his "jabberwocky" demons. This year the storyline is based on Roald Dahl’s scrumdiddlyumtious tale of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory... except in the modern-day pole world we follow five competitors as they battle it out for the title of being the "face of Wonka" as we also get a peek at the peculiar confectionary maven, Willy Wonka, the Wonka factory and his Oompa Loompas. Director of the production and owner of The Pole Project, Kathy Lee, says: “The challenge this year was to find a theme that would top our first show and live up to some rather high expectations. Not only did we need to find fantastical characters we could bring to life and that audiences would be familiar with, but also a story that could translate into a pole dancing production on stage. We decided on the beloved tale of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, because who doesn’t love the story about the eccentric candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, who opens up his magical and mysterious factory to five lucky children? With its two film versions and a West End musical, Roald Dahl’s ‘sweet’ story is arguably the most prominent amongst his many children’s books. Plus, the name is fortuitously harmonious with the name of our show… a FEAST indeed!” 2017's show incorporated acts by The Pole Project (based in the CBD at the time) and The Scar-Lit Box (based in Claremont at the time) and took place in the southern suburb of . . .

According to a UK study, four in ten women would rather spend time with their girl-friends than with their husbands, while close to half said they felt women were far better company than men!

Liberty Promenade is proud to announce the upcoming Next Generation Musical Showcase which is set to wow the crowds on Saturday 18 August. The spotlight will fall on teams of learners from 15 local primary and high schools from Mitchells Plain, who will be performing their own musical piece on the concert stage in the Food Court. Liberty Promenade is sponsoring R 60 000 in prize money, equating to R 10 000 for each of the top six performing schools. The prize money can be used for upgrades of school facilities of their choice. The winning team and their accompanying teachers will also walk away with Liberty Promenade gift cards to the value of R 350 for learners and R 1 000 for teachers. “Guided by the theme ‘embracing diversity’, the teams of learners have already been hard at work practising their sets and polishing their five-minute performance for the big day,” says Brian Unsted, Liberty Two Degrees Asset Management Executive for Liberty Promenade Mall. “They can choose to perform a song or medley of songs, and may include a skit, poem, dance or any other artistic expression. This is the time for the youth to express their true voice on embracing diversity and building a fully inclusive future for South Africa.” For the past six years, Liberty Promenade has run the very successful Generation Green Recycled Fashion Show as their annual showcase event for the Mitchells Plain community. “This year we felt it was time for a change” explains Brenda Bibby, General Manager for Liberty Promenade. “After engaging with the local schools and community leaders to find out what they wanted, we then realised that there’s an unbelievable amount of young musical talent in Mitchells Plain that is hidden and never fully appreciated. We wanted to create an opportunity for the youth to showcase their exceptional talents while promoting greater tolerance of differences in culture, race, religion, and gender orientation.
