Venues

Events will be happening at several venues in Cape Town’s ‘Fringe’. They are all within walking distance of each other.

The Fugard Theatre is the hub of the festival and the Open Book Office will be there for the duration. You will also be able to buy tickets for events directly from the Fugard. Those of you who have attended events there in the past will know that there are two spaces within the building – the Theatre and Studio. We will be using both spaces extensively throughout the festival. The Fugard Theatre recently renovated a building across the road from the Theatre and this is where the Fugard Annexe spaces are located (23 Harrington Street).

The much loved indie-bookshop, The Book Lounge will be hosting several events and all books related to the festival will be available for purchase there and at the Fugard Theatre.

The Homecoming Centre and the District 6 Museum will be hosting various Open Book. The Homecoming Centre building has been recently refurbished and both spots are worth visiting even if you are not attending an event there.

Central Library will be hosting a couple of events on our programme. Located on the corner of Parade and Darling Streets, the library is an incredible space that all should visit. They have a great selection of books no matter your reading taste.

For those struggling to find parking, please try the Parade (opposite the City Hall) or the parking area around the corner from the Fugard Theatre.
