    I have not attended the Celebrate Life Festival this year as I think to pay R60 to browse around the stalls and absorb the vibe (which is all I want to do), is a bit steep. If I was interested in attending a talk or joining in another event, that would be different. I did look at what was on offer in that department, and without wishing to sound like a “know it all”, I didn’t feel there was anything new for me there.

    I was planning to attend, have some lunch and a browse to see if anything caught my eye, but changed my mind at the thought of having to fork out R60 first. Maybe this section of the fair should be free with a charge levied at those who want to go to talks, movies etc.?

  • Pia Taylor says:

    Hi Jill
    I guess it depends on the value that one gets out of it… I also decided I didn’t think I would see anything I wouldn’t otherwise have been able to see at the Holistic Fair which though not free is only R10 a pop. I love the idea of the festival, and I was mildly interested in the talks, but I must say I wasn’t blown away last year when I went. I think there does need to be more value offered – something that makes paying R60/R100 to visit much easier to do. But perhaps people who are more interested in the talks would have got their value for money? And as you say, they could split it into the general festival and the talk section – though perhaps they’re worried that might segregate things too much.
