At last: Action in the Arena!

It was an action-packed afternoon and evening at the Castle of Good Hope, in preparation for the Cape Town Military Tattoo 2014. The wet and drizzly weather of yesterday continued for most of the morning, but the sun appeared around midday – just in time for the post-lunch rehearsals in the arena.

We got a first look at some of the acts, having just seen snippets in the previous days.

For the first time, the bikers of the South African Specialist Infantry Capability made an appearance in the arena – with much revving, vroom-vrooming, and leaping from ramps! It made for some thrilling photos, but the Keeper of the Lawns will no doubt be a little perturbed when he arrives for work the next morning.

The vibe was wonderful – the sense of anticipation and excitement is definitely mounting!

Remember to get your tickets at Computicket yet – don’t wait – go now!
