Run Green!
Ever wanted to know more about ‘Running Green’ and how you can help??
Distance runners understand the physical dimensions of their bodies better than most and are fine-tuned to environmental perturbations which could affect performance. Running in polluted environments drains energy, while running in pristine surrounds lifts the soul and with it, performance. Race organisers are becoming more conscious of the need to marry racing with environmental integrity, committing increasingly to low-carbon measures or carbon neutrality, zero waste to landfill and to raising environmental awareness.


ATC Sunset TTT
Join in on the next ATC Running Summer Sunset Team Time Trial.
Teams of 4 will run 3km each and will take in the stadium surrounds, pedestrian and cycle paths and the Green Point Urban Park and will be capped at 100 teams entering, with a total of 400 runners.  Each team will consist of 4 runners, and each runner will run 3 Kilometres.

Jesus Christ Superstar | 25 – 28 October 2017
Jesus Christ Superstar – the 1970’s rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. It is based on the Bible’s account of the last week of Jesus’s life on earth. However the story gets told from a fictional, human perspective: that of Judas who possibly grappled with finding answers to the issues of the time as a human.

Everyday Anomaly | 9 Sep – 21 Oct 2017
Normality, an idea so ingrained in culture that it feels like truth, is an invention of nineteenth century Europe. Originating in statistics, norms first entered language and culture as a means to describe the distribution of human characteristics, a way to talk about bodies and behaviours on a grand scale that quickly became synonymous with their typical forms. But it’s a slim line between an average and an ideal at the best of times: what’s true for many can too easily become what should be true for all. Today we’re most familiar with the norm as a standard by which we judge ourselves and each other. Normality is conditioned, and it is conditional.


Sixty+ Counts – Photo exhibition with Ikamva Labantu | 5 – 29 October 2017

Iziko Museums has the following events/exhibitions:
Iziko Slave Lodge 
Until 31 December 2017 | Material women? The shweshwe story
By means of costumes, accessories and contextual images, this exhibition traces the origins of isishweshwe cloth from its roots as a trade item in Asia and Europe, to its establishment as a much-loved southern African material icon.

Until 28 February 2018 | Through Positive Eyes is an exhibition which builds on the work of South African photographer Gideon Mendel, harnessing the power of the arts to banish HIV stigma.

Iziko South African National Gallery
Until 15 December 2017 | At Face Value
While most portraits focus on the face, others reveal more about the environment and social relationships, especially between an artist and a sitter.

Until 18 March 2018 | Assessing Abstraction
As the scratchings on the 70 000-year-old Blombos ochre reveal, that non-figurative mark-marking long predates the very notion of ‘art’ itself.

Until 31 May 2018 |  ‘Alternative Press’ – Work of Derek Bauer
Is an exhibition of original cartoons dedicated to the talent of cartoonist Derek Bauer. He became well-known for his inherently irreverent cartoons and caricatures of politicians and other prominent figures during the troubled and Apartheid-stricken South Africa and the turbulent world in the 1980s.

Iziko South African Museum
Until 31 December 2017 | Crossing the Ecoline
Between the atmosphere and the ocean – at the point where the absorption of carbon dioxide takes place – is the “ecoline”. This is where two environments interconnect.

The Bo-Kaap Museum, situated in the historic area that became home to many Muslims and freed slaves after the abolition of slavery, showcases local Islamic culture and heritage.

Groot Constantia Manor House with its exhibition of furniture, paintings, textiles, ceramics, brass, and copperware, provides an insight into the life of a successful 18th to late 19th century Cape farmer.

Koopmans-de Wet House
This house museum is furnished as a home for a well-to-do Cape family during the late 18th Century. It houses some of the best pieces of Cape furniture and silver in the country, in addition to a priceless collection of ceramics.

The Iziko Maritime Centre features an overview of shipping in Cape Town, and the earliest existing model of Table Bay harbour, completed in 1885 by prisoners and warders of Breakwater Prison, forms part of the exhibitions.

The Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome, one of only 6 fully fledged planetaria on the African Continent, brings the most advanced digital visualisation technology to Cape Town.

Rust en Vreugd was built as a home for Willem Cornelis Boers, a high-ranking official of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) known as a fiscal, around 1777–1778.

Social History Centre
After a three-year programme of renovation and extension of the National Mutual Building on Church Square, it was handed back to Iziko during a media preview event held on International Museum Day, 18 May 2010.

The Thirsty Oyster Tavern
Legend has it that old Rasta on the Roof found this shipwreck in the Old Harbour and turned it into a pub and restaurant called ‘The Thirsty Oyster Tavern’, where, to quote him, ‘home is where the anchor drops’. So why not drop anchor here for a while, crack open that careworn shell and slip into our relaxed and friendly ambiance – whether it be in the cool breezes of summer or by the warm, cosy fires in winter – we have 3 fireplaces to ensure you stay nice and warm. And that infamous South Easter? Don’t fuss! We’re pretty sheltered, tucked in as we are, between the Naval College and the National Sea Rescue facility.
