The Fresha Festival is Durban’s newest arts festival, offering a refreshing taste of alfresco theatre on the Durban beachfront. The inaugural festival ran from Friday 20 January to Sunday 22 January 2017, on the Bay of Plenty Lawns on North Beach. Plans are in place for the next edition of the festival to be held in January 2018. The festival aims to bring performance to the people with a range of shows to delight, amaze and amuse.

The “Sundowner Showcase” performances are full-length theatre pieces under our Bedouin tent on the Bay of Plenty Lawns at 5pm each evening of the festival. These performances are charged on a pay-what-you-can basis.
