Friends of FynArts 2019 launched

Ticket sales for Hermanus FynArts from 8 June to 17 June this year reached a new record and were up by just over 8% on 2017 sales. This achievement was reached despite the adverse social and economic conditions that prevailed in the town before and during the festival.

At the sixth Annual General Meeting of Hermanus FynArts held on 20 November, festival director Mary Faure also indicated in her presentation, Looking back to move forward, that feedback on FynArts 2018 was generally very positive and that the organisers are taking heed of the constructive comments received.

“We will be addressing issues like the poor visibility from certain areas of the Hermanus Dutch Reformed Church, requests for more theatre; the potential for growth of the Strauss&Co series of talks and presentations, modifications to the chef demonstration programme and increased numbers of workshops and events for the young and youth. The latter will be especially relevant for the closing weekend next year which will be both a long weekend and the first weekend of the school holidays.

“I am excited that we will again be able to present a ten day festival filled with art in various forms to enrich and entertain our growing number of festival goers,” she said.

FynArts 2019 is scheduled from 7 to 17 June and the programme will be released in January.

After the AGM, the coordinator of the Friends of FynArts, Joanna Hardie, officially launched the Friends of FynArts 2019. This initiative was started last year and encourages everyone who attends and enjoys the annual FynArts Festival to become a Friend in order to support the festival and be associated with its activities. Friends contribute to the vitality of the festival as funds support productions and outreach events.

The Friends of FynArts enjoy a number of special events throughout the year, most of which are free of charge, as well as priority “early bird” booking for all the events. Following the enthusiastic support of last year’s Friends initiative, Corporate Friends of FynArts has been launched this year as many local businesses have indicated their interest in supporting the festival.

The first individual Friend of FynArts to renew her membership for 2019 was Gillan Bowie, and the first Corporate Friend to sign up for this new initiative was Tania Fourie of the international golf tournament for professionals, The Global Challenge.
