Kalk Bay Theatre

For best viewing quality, make sure to set the viewing settings to 1080p HD by clicking on the cog at the bottom right-hand corner of the video.

This quaint 78-seater theatre located in Kalk Bay, Cape Town, was actually originally an old Dutch Reformed Church.

It was built in 1876 and is a heritage protected building.

Going there to shoot for Skybok was super – we got great weather and shooting their video didn’t take too long.

I personally love the red interior and the upstairs where patrons can eat dinner before the show.

I think it’s a super idea – dinner and a show at the same venue.

The theatre is constantly showing new and popular theatre pieces….and the idea is that patrons arrive from 6:30pm and, after reserving their theatre seats, are directed upstairs to the restaurant.

There is a set menu and the food is mainly served before the show but drinks and dessert are served after the performance.

Patrons make their way down to the theatre when the show is due to start.

Drinks may be taken into the theatre but there is no service in the theatre during the show.

We loved the owners – very friendly and professional people.

Here is their website if you’re interested in finding out more about the theatre or the shows which are currently showing there (you will also see Skybok’s logo featured on the website, directing visitors to check out their video profile, which is really nice!) —–>  THE KALK BAY THEATRE

Stellenbosch, Wine Farms

Simonsig Wine Estate

Skybok filmed the video profile for Simonsig Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Simonsig is located in the heart of the Stellenbosch wine region. Travelling there to film was such a pleasure. We got a beautiful view of the Simonsberg Mountain (after which the wine estate is named), not to mention some even more lovely shots around the estate itself. They are the only wine estate with a working wine cellar, and it was fascinating watching this process!

The Music Kitchen Port Elizabeth Restaurants Music Bars If you’re looking for a great evening hot spot in Port Elizabeth, The Music Kitchen is my personal recommendation! Known for their Wednesday nights all-you-can-eat ribs and prawns, this is one of the coolest spots I’ve been to in a while.  And don’t just take my word for it – ask any local you meet.  The Music Kitchen is on Facebook so if you like what you see, join their online family HERE. They’re also on Twitter, so follow them HERE. What’s great about this place is that they provide a platform for original artists to perform. If you’re a muso in the area of Port Elizabeth, you can apply to perform and you’ll join their wall of fame which features many famous names in the South African music industry. Here’s what we shot for them:

The Rotary Medieval Festival

Skybok covered events for Rotary PE West as part of their “Medieval Festival”. It’s a whole weekend of festivities themed around the Middle Ages and it’s hosted at Victoria Park in Port Elizabeth. Their “Royal Banquet” is on a Friday night where everyone arrives dressed up in costumes from the Middle Ages. There’s a dinner and lots of entertainment! During the Saturday, they host an entire day filled with arts, crafts and activities that people used to play during Medieval times.

Here are the profiles of this awesome outdoor two-day event:
