Comedian Dalin Oliver, singer and songwriter Jarrad Ricketts and drag artist Manila von Teez will take part in the #HopeOnTheRise Virtual Showcase on Saturday October 24, at 7pm, in support of Cape Mental Health.

When the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic meant that the non-profit organisation could no longer host their iconic annual kite festival traditionally, Ricketts offered to create an online concert for their virtual Cape Town International Kite Festival.

The artists will combine their talents at the Penny Lane Studios to live stream an evening of music, dance and laughter to your home.

Tickets, which cost R50, include access to the #HopeOnTheRise Virtual Showcase, all the virtual Cape Town International Kite Festival online activities including six professional kite-making workshops, a colouring-in competition, kiter interviews and an official certificate of participation.

Join kiters all over the globe and fly your kite, anywhere and any time until Saturday October 31. Share your photos, videos and messages of hope, tagging #HopeOnTheRise and @CTKiteFest, and feature on the official CTKiteFest social feeds.

Book here.

The #HopeOnTheRise Virtual Showcase and the virtual 26th Cape Town International Kite Festival campaign aims to raise R250 000 which Cape Mental Health will invest in essential mental health services in low-income areas of Cape Tow
