Western Cape turophiles (that’s the fancy term for cheese- lovers, btw), listen up! The National Cheese Festival is on in Sandringham outside Stellenbosch the weekend after Easter, from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 April. The main focus is cheese, obviously, and a really wide variety of the stuff. But you can also expect all the good things to go with the cheese: pomegranates, olives, herbs, mushrooms, nuts, honey and indigenous tea. Plus there will be (live) music to eat cheese by and activities (and supervision!) for the little ones. Plus daily cheese- carving competitions, which should be fun to watch if nothing else. Get tickets from Computicket and Shoprite/checkers at R180 for adults, R120 for seniors and R20 for children from two to 13 years. See cheesefestival.co.za for more.
