Glamour (South Africa) - - Guide / Head out -

Story time Out­side of the sheer joy that it brings, reading ac­tu­ally makes us smarter. So im­merse your­self and your lit­tle ones in the mag­i­cal world of lit­er­a­ture at the first ever South African Chil­dren Book Fair. From 15-18 June, the Birch­wood Ho­tel will be the per­fect place to set imag­i­na­tions free, with in­ter­ac­tive work­shops, sto­ry­telling and ex­cit­ing launches. Tick­ets are R20-R50; book yours at webtick­ets.co.za. The good life Af­ter three years of run­ning in the Cape Winelands, the luxe Le Kap Life­style Fair is mak­ing its Gaut­eng de­but. On the agenda: food, wine, cou­ture, cars and fab­u­lous­ness. So dress to the max and head for Steyn City Coun­try Club on 10 June. Tick­ets start at R450. For more info, visit lekaplifestyle­fair.com.

Star qual­ity The stag­ger­ingly tal­ented Jonathan Rox­mouth has starred in The Phan­tom of the Opera and West Side Story among oth­ers, so don’t miss Jonathan Rox­mouth – The Mu­si­cals in Concert, com­plete with a 45-piece orches­tra. And book fast, as there are only four shows. From 30 June-2 July at the Teatro at Mon­te­casino. Tick­ets start at R150 via com­puticket.com.

Dig it Can’t tell your por­to­bello from your porcini, your but­ton from your morel? Us nei­ther, which is why we’re de­lighted by the prospect of Del­heim Wine Es­tate’s Mush­room For­age. Th­ese guided searches for wild mush­rooms will teach par­tic­i­pants to iden­tify, cor­rectly pick, and clean th­ese prized and tasty del­i­ca­cies. Tick­ets, at R695 per per­son, are lim­ited, so book now and pre­pare for magic on 15, 16 or 30 June, or 1 July. Book via com­puticket.com. He’s the man! He was the first man in your life, he’s still one of the most im­por­tant, and he surely de­serves some­thing spe­cial on Fa­ther’s Day. One great pos­si­bil­ity for 18 June: the three-course cel­e­bra­tion lunch at Nuy On the Hill restau­rant. Well priced at R220 per per­son, the meal in­cludes a com­pli­men­tary mini bot­tle of Nuy Rooi Mus­cadel. To re­serve a ta­ble, visit nuy­win­ery.co.za.
