This morning, I received an interesting comment on my blogpost titled What Does the Future Hold for the Cape Town Military Tattoo?
It came from Simon Carter, the Executive Producer of the South African Tattoo. He said as follows:
“The South African Tattoo is returning in October 2018 , performing 6 shows at a new venue, Sun International’s Time Square, a state-of-the-art indoor arena, seating over 6000 per show. It is the only privately funded tattoo and although the business model of producing a show with over 500 performers, including international guests, is very challenging, we aim to reestablish the SA Tattoo as an annual event in our country’s capital.”
Fans of Military Tattoos in South Africa – please join me in cheering loudly!!
Now isn’t that FANTASTIC? Finally, a Tattoo in South Africa again!
Please go and visit their website, and find out more about the upcoming event – and how to book. The event will be held from Thursday 4 October to Sunday 7 October 2018 at the Sun Arena at Times Square, Menlyn Maine, Pretoria. Books open at Ticketpro in April 2018, so make a note in your diaries.
I’m sure that, as the event approaches, there will be more information available on their website with regard to the performers we can expect to see. So pop over there from time to time.
