Day 2: Grahamstown National Arts Festival 2014 x Dinner at Haricot’s With Nedbank

We wrapped the NEDBANK #WarmerWinter campaign with dinner at Haricots Deli & French Bistro hosted by On-Point PR made possible by NEDBANK. A warm and intimate spot situated on 32 New Street, Grahamstown. The restaurant has an interesting layout. As opposed to the typical big open space, it is rather partitioned in to free-flow-space in between table settings. Think of it as a maze-layout allowing the illusion of private dining to patrons.

Nkosinathi Msiza - Nedbank Senior Communications Manager, clicked the glass to welcome everyone and thereafter it was me GRAHAM BECK Brut, great conversation, camera and laughter through out the night.

After less nibbles and more bubbles on tap, we had a choice between three plays but for most of us, it was off to THE HANGAR theatre to watch; The Liberation of an Angry Little Man. A piece which has been described as a performance about great expectations, ambition, 
resilience and, ultimately, about the horror of failure.

There was Oranja juice offered to the audience, there was a lot of WTF-moments, synthetic wild cats fabrics, a suit tailor with wild kamikaze ideas, naughty giggles and a deep sigh of relieve as soon as the house lights came on and people bolted for the exit door to the right. If you at Grahamstown National Arts Festival and looking for something a little bit off-off-beat feel free to catch this play. – you have been warned
