The Event

In love, in verse: a literary and classical event

Fri Feb 14th, 7.30pm, Jubilee, 33 Kloof Street, Cape Town

An evening to enjoy some of the world’s most famous poetry dealing with the highs and lows of romantic love.


  • heart-warming and often hilarious attempts of poets to seduce, charm, or otherwise win the affections of those who just aren’t interested
  • humorously realistic evaluations of long-term relationships by female poets
  • translations of some of the earliest expressions of love from Egyptian hieroglyphics, to ancient Hebrew poetry, to a traditional Sotho bride’s song.
  • Modern poems by Maya Angelou, WB Yeats, Wendy Cope, Azila Reisenberger, TS Eliot and more…
  • Refreshing musical interludes by Cape Town’s PLAY string quartet
  • Cheese and Wine (sponsored by the incredibly talented Erika Obermeyer)

With actor Frank Rautenbach (7de Laan, Bang Bang Club), KFM Presenter Mamohau Seseane, and others, hosted by Lex Loizides.

The venue has secure on-site parking with security personnel.
