The SA Tattoo 2018 is almost here!

Exciting news!

We’re going to see the SA Tattoo in Pretoria next week!

Since I heard that the SA Tattoo was returning in October 2018, I have been keeping an eye on their website and social media. Things have been so quiet on the Tattoo front both in Cape Town and KZN for the last couple of years, and I was feeling bereft. The almost-annual Tattoos in Cape Town always offered a goal to work towards, and an event to look forward to with mounting anticipation. We haven’t had that since the spectacular CTMT 2015.

So when Simon Carter, Executive Producer of the SA Tattoo, left a comment on my blogpost titled “What does the future hold for the Cape Town Military Tattoo”, telling me that the South African Tattoo was coming to Pretoria, I knew that I just had to make a plan to see it. Luckily for me, Tattoo Week coincides with a conference at the CSIR, which hubby has to attend. 😉

Tickets have been bought, flights and accommodation are booked, and arrangements have been made. And to ratchet my excitement levels up into the stratosphere, yesterday morning, I received permission from the organisers to take photos behind the scenes and during the performances!!! I cannot tell you how thrilled I am, and how eagerly I am looking forward to seeing familiar faces again and to meeting new people!

If you haven’t yet bought your tickets, you have a few more days to head on over to Computicket! The venue is the brand-new Sun Arena at Time Square, in the Menlyn Maine precinct. It can apparently seat up to 8,500 people. There are three performances:

  • Saturday 06 October 2018 at 4pm
  • Saturday 06 October 2018 at 7pm
  • Sunday 07 October 2018 at 3 pm

Now go and reserve your seats at Computicket!
