4. A Night at the Opera (8 April)
Benguela on Main in Somerset West is hosting an event made for the opera fan in you. They’re hosting a delicious five-course menu accompanied by the sensational voice of Shaza Greef, and no doubt washed down with some amazing local wines. Benguela on Main is renowned for their next-level food, and you will just have to see (and taste) it to believe it.

Opera and high-quality food have never sounded so enamouring than at A Night at the Opera.

5. The Eden Experience: Botanic Dreams (8 April)
This event marks the very last Eden Experience of the year, and boy-oh-boy they’re going out with a bang! Botanic Dreams will go down at Zevenwacht Wine Estate in Kuils River and the organisers have pulled out the big guns for their season finale. You’ll be treated to Krash! Live, Syzo, Dane Stirrat and more at this one day experience.

Spend the day in the company of fellow music-lovers at The Eden Experience Botanic Dreams.

6. Whisky Live Festival (6 – 8 April)
We all love whisky, and if you don’t then you’ll learn to after this stellar event. The annual Whisky Live Festival sees some of the world’s greatest whiskies come together for a swirling, tasting, laughing good time at The Lookout in Granger Bay. What festival would it be without food and music? Well, you’ll never need to find out because Whisky Live has both!

7. Mahali The Night Market (7 April)
This new take on the creative showcase will challenge your notions of festival, market and exhibit as it combines them all into one night of creative excitement. Mahali will boast local musicians, artists, brands and designers all of which will mix and mingle at the Palms Decor and Lifestyle Centre in Woodstock for one night only.
