The Toyota SU Woordfees is a unique collaboration that brings together a town, a university, artists, audiences and communities from across our country and many parts of the world.
The oldest town in the country (the city of Cape Town is the oldest settlement) provides the perfect backdrop to this cultural immersion. The oak-lined streets are packed with national monuments, where creaking wooden staircases lead to vast halls lit by chandeliers. These old buildings, as well as restaurants, pubs, gardens and tents evolve into improvised art theatres, galleries and concert venues, and host everything from jazz and stand-up comedy to book launches and wine-tastings.
A third of the events revolve around books and discourse. About 70 per cent of Woordfees is Afrikaans, with a large English theatre component. International input is mainly Dutch and Flemish, with British and German too. The Woordfees offers all forms of artistic expression and is a festival of excellence.
Twice Central Guesthouse with its seven luxury ensuite rooms, is situated in the middle of the action, walking distance from most of the festival venues.
