There will be lots of cricketing action and live music on the cards at this weekend’s Cape Town Sixes Cricket and Cultural Festival.

Taking place at the Green Point Cricket Club on Saturday and Sunday, the festival includes a cricket tournament, which is endorsed by Western Province Cricket Association, where invites local and international semi-pro and amateur teams will be competing.

Money raised from the corporate league has gone towards three development teams’ participation in the premier league and a cricket clinic at the Khayelitsha Cricket Club. The development team inclusion is about giving those teams that might not have an opportunity the chance to play on the big stage.

Spectators will also be able to sample food from the a Food of Nations Village featuring cuisine from the world’s great cricketing countries and browse the “Bigger Than Me” which will highlight social development projects improving the lives of Capetonians.

Little ones can enjoy the safe kids and family zone, while parents can look forward to live music each day.

Mango Groove, Jimmy Nevis, the Kiffness and Rory Elliot (from Plush) will end the festival with the main concert on Sunday evening.
