JOYOUS CELEBRATION 15 TOUR (21 – 24 April)
Joyous Celebration will celebrate another milestone in 2011 as they launch, release and stage a tour promoting Joyous Celebration 15 – the fifteenth year of the project. The project has re-positioned contemporary gospel music in South Africa and has contributed to giving it a solid platform and the recognition it deserves as one of the highest selling & most popular music genres in this country. As the longest running contemporary gospel ensemble, Joyous Celebration is consistently “re-inventing” itself, setting the trends in the gospel genre whilst maintaining the highest quality in music and presentation. This is the reason that the group has endeared itself to a growing following over the past 14 years.

WINNIE – The Opera (Opera, April 28 – 3 May)
Under the watchful eyes of the international media, the “Mother of the Nation,” Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, one of the iconic figures in the struggle against Apartheid, is subpoenaed to appear before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).
