Witness Hilton Arts Festival turns 21!
Hilton College: 12 - 15 September 2013
KZN’s foremost and respected arts festivals: the annual Witness Hilton Arts Festival turns 21 this year and takes place on the beautiful grounds of the Hilton College from 12 - 15 September 2013.

The annual Witness Hilton Arts Festival is broadly considered to be KZN’s premier arts and culture festival and one of the top festivals in the country which consistently produces an unmatched programme of cutting-edge drama, comedy, music and music revue, as well as an impressive array of arts and crafts; master-classes and Mindscapes lectures appealing to all who visit the festival each year.

To make sure that the 21st Witness Hilton Arts Festival gets off to a rollicking start and ends with a bang this weekend, the organisers are offering half-price tickets for two shows on Friday and two shows on Sunday.

Theatre patrons who buy tickets at the festival Ticket Office on the relevant day, can enjoy half price tickets for An Unromantic Comedy (6pm) a funny, painful and poignant look at contemporary relationships and Vigil (8.30pm) Morris Panych’s award winning black comedy, on Friday evening, and for The List (10am) the award-winning play by Canadian playwright Jennifer Tremblay and Pirates of Penzance (6.30pm) a witty theatrical masterpiece which takes satire and comedy to the extreme on Sunday.

The half price offer is for door-sales on the day, on-site only – and does not apply to pre-booked tickets. Half price tickets are subject to availability.

All enquiries on 033 383 0126 /7 or Booking is open.
