Events will be happening at the HCC: Homecoming Centre.

We are returning to what was The Fugard Theatre, and which is now the HCC: Homecoming Centre. It is the hub of the festival and the Open Book team will be there for the duration. You will also be able to buy tickets for events directly from Webtickets box office in the Foyer for the duration of the festival. Events will run in the Star Theatre, Avalon Theatre and HCC Workshop. This venue is also home to the Stadium, the Marketplace and the Book Lounge satellite shop.

The much loved indie-bookshop, The Book Lounge will be hosting a several events and all books related to the festival will be available for purchase there as well as at the satellite shop the Homecoming Centre.

Parking in this area can be a challenge on weekdays, so we suggest you leave enough time to find a spot on the 8th of September in particular. There is a parking area diagonally opposite the venue, but this can fill up quickly.

Additional venues include 16 on Lerotholi in Langa and the Electric on Canterbury Street.
