The Fresha Festivalis a brand new free fun family al-fresco theatre festival to be staged for the first time on Durban's North Beach for three days on 20, 21 and 22 January.
Festival Director Emma Durden considered: "What could be more quintessentially Durban than a summer festival of free theatre, and an early morning Saturday dance class, right on the beach "
The Fresha Festivalstarts late afternoon on Friday 20 January with a promenade procession and perfomance showcase to provide an overview of the weekend ahead.
The festival programme runs on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 January, from noon until 5pm, offering a full afternoon of diverse, family-friendly free short shows. Each day will culminate with a Sundowner Showcaseunder the especially-erected beach Bedouin tent on the Bay of Plenty Lawns at 5pm.
