KZN’S premier arts festival, the Hilton Arts Festival, celebrated its 25th birthday with a bumper weekend of phenomenal art, music and theatre.

In true festival style, the weekend saw a kaleidoscope of haphazard weather patterns.

From baking heat to gale force winds, to pea-soup mist, biting cold and intermittent drizzle, however this didn’t dampen the spirits of art lovers.

Festival director, Sue Clarence said: “We are delighted we had such a successful festival again, especially as we were celebrating our 25th year of existence.

“I extend a heartfelt thank you firstly to the entire creative, management and technical team for their dedication, good humour and hard work, and secondly to our sponsors and partners, who made the festival possible.

“The attendance for Saturday showed a 48% improvement compared to last year - calculated by the numbers of cars through the gate - and ticket sales overall look very healthy,” said Clarence.
