Expect the unexpected!

2017 is already gearing up to be a momentous and memorable year for our county - and this year's National Arts Festival will once again take the temperature of our nation, through the work of our performers; writers; directors; artists; and designers. With an expected 700 events across the Main & Fringe programmes, Grahamstown is poised to deliver an extraordinary programme that is provocative, innovative, engaging and entertaining in June and July. And we want you to join us. 

Featuring new works from theatrical firebrands alongside Festival favourites such as the Gala Concert, presented this year by the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, you can expect a thrilling mix of new and familiar. Read more.
