Fans to have a bright Annual National Arts Festival
Organisers struck a deal with Eskom to try to ensure there will be no power cuts during the 11-day festival.
CAPE TOWN - Amid fears of load shedding, organisers of the Annual National Arts Festival in Grahamstown have moved to ensure the lights stay on.
They have struck a deal with Eskom and the local municipality to try to ensure there will be no power cuts.
The 11-day festival is in its 41st year and will kick off next week.
Festival CEO Tony Lankester said, "There are parts of town that have a high concentration of our performance venues and those parts will be largely protected from load shedding while the rest of the town will take the extra burden of load shedding during the course of the festival."
