For some it might be difficult to comprehend that we are already nearing the eighth month of the year, and with that, moving ever closer to Spring. Though the winter weather of the cape winelands still plays a predominant part in the daily lives of those at Solms-Delta, the dynamic team at the Dik Delta culinary garden are prepping for the long-awaited summer season. As the winter months draw to a steady close, we begin to look to the approach of a warmer and sunnier Solms-Delta, as well as the blossoming spirits of all who pass through Dik Delta culinary gardens.

““Not to be missed” and “once in a lifetime” are [often] overtraded critical clichés. Solomon and Marion is, however, an occasion where they are apt and fitting.” – Cape Times

This July, South African-born actress, director and all-round theater icon, Dame Janet Suzman, gloriously returns to the South African stage to reprise her role alongside Khayalethu Anthony in Lara Foot’s Solomon and Marion at the Baxter Theater Golden Arrow Studio. Solms-Delta will be at the opening night on Wednesday to kick off the celebrations for this proudly home-grown production with our finest food and wine.

The thoroughfare to the Golden Arrow Studio at Cape Town’s Baxter Theater came to life on Tuesday evening; suddenly teeming with Twitter personalities, thespians, social media sensations, and budding bloggers, all ready to caress their palates with fantastically fine wine and catch a glimpse of Nicky Rebelo’s latest production, Long Street Nights.
