SA artists return on the National Arts Festival stage
Thursday, 27th May 2021
Makhanda is looking forward to welcoming visitors to the multi-layered National Arts Festival’s from 08-18 July.
This very special edition of the National Arts Festival will be a small, intimate rendition of the 48-year-old Festival with curated and fringe programme elements, the Eastern Cape Showcase, live works of the 2020 Standard Bank Young Artists, Masicule choral concert, food experiences and the return of The Village Green and outdoor events from 08-18 July 2021.
The Festival will be fully Covid-19 compliant and 100% committed to your safety.
The National Arts Festival also brings you the opportunity to enjoy a selection of shows right from your living room through the Festival's lively virtual platform. This is also where you can enjoy the Standard Bank Jazz Festival, coming to your personal screen in July 2021.
