Gala Dinner
We invite you to a wonderful and exciting theatre venue, Richard’s Supper Stage owned by, Richard Loring (producer of the internationally-acclaimed ‘African Footprint’) and friend and business partner of many years, Roland Seidel. You will be transported into the world of entertainment, featuring talented artists performing Kaapse Stories. Enjoy Cape wines and an exclusive scrumptious Cape Buffet. Our Bar is decorated with memorabilia from Richard Loring’s 50 years in musical theatre, television, records, movies and cabaret.

Kaapse Stories from the Mother City is an exciting vibrant new musical dinner show which offers a blend of humorous storytelling, powerful and emotional songs and likable performers unique only to Cape Town. Intimate and enchanting, the show allows the audience to get to know and meet the Kleintjies family whilst giving us an insight into a vigorous cosmopolitan community that thrived at the foot of Table Mountain in District Six.

Grandpa Joe, known to everyone as ‘Pa Joe’ takes us on a journey of extraordinary events along with his family, legally adopted or otherwise- brother Bernie, uncle Charlie and precocious granddaughter Genevieve, along with a host of other surprise characters who display their hidden talents and delightful sense of humour, whilst showing resilience and pride.

Directed by the award winning director Basil Appollis and produced by Richard Loring, this quality production with a strong emphasis on entertainment allows international guests to discover the colourful history of the Cape and its vibrant people.


A golf day is to be held on the day prior to day 1 of the conference… details to be provided shortly.
