Since its early days in the 1970s, the Grahamstown Festival has pulled in the crowds and for 11 days every July, the town is turned upside down. That’s not to say the Grahamstown residents are complaining; business booms and this sleepy Eastern Cape town comes alive to the many forms of art presented to appreciative audiences.
Today the Grahamstown Festival is known as the National Arts Festival, a well-sponsored event that takes in all art forms, from street performances to big stage productions. The festival is the largest of its kind on the continent. In fact, there are two festivals that run concurrently; the main festival is a programmed event with featured performers chosen through a selection process, while the fringe festival provides unknown artists with a platform to present their work. Fringe performers are required to pay their own way including venue hire, and a percentage of profits are handed over to the organisers.

More intimate and personalised than larger hotels, guests can expect a warmer, friendlier stay at a Boutique Hotel. Boutique Hotels are high-end accommodation, and guests can expect all the usual luxury amenities expected from a regular/larger hotel, including wifi; tea and coffee facilities; and deluxe bedding, and then some. Most Boutique Hotels pride themselves on personal service that allows them to go the extra-mile - making it an ideal place to stay for guests celebrating special events or anniversaries.
