SINCE the early days when everything at The Witness Hilton Arts Festival took place in the theatre, 16 years of growth have seen the activities branching out into shows for the kids, all kinds of music from classical to cabaret to bands, talks, workshops — and even a chance to learn to cha-cha. Whatever it is that blows your hair back, it will be at Hilton from September 12 to September 14. And for the time between shows, there is always the craft market, places to eat and buskers and other musicians to listen to. • While the grown-ups are doing their festival thing, the kids are catered for with Betti and the Yetti from the Ubom! Company in the Eastern Cape and Faces of Africa, which tells stories of the creatures of the veld.
