(Hamish Kyd & Clinton Daniels)

The St Philomena’s Community Development Area situated in Sydenham is really going places as it reaches out to the arts community to make use of its spacious hall.

Under the efficient organisation of Clinton Daniels, the venue is attractively and elegantly decorated with white drapes and upmarket table settings. It offers a highly user-friendly entertainment space in a complex that is easily accessible and has ample secure parking.

Since the beginning of the year, St Philomena’s entertainment area has hosted a Bridal Expo which included a Wedding Fashion Show presented by Kyd followed by a Valentine’s Day Dinner and Dance on February 14.

Working closely with Clinton Daniels is well-known actor, director and writer Hamish Kyd. Acknowledged as an eThekwini Living Legend for Arts & Culture, he matches Daniels’ passion for the development of young people through drama - as in edutainment.

Coming up this week is Kyd’s highly popular Knowing You … Knowing Me which he created as a play as well as a novel. It's about a father coming to terms with the information that his much-loved son is gay. The show is thought-provoking yet funny and poignant. Performances will take place on February 25, 26 and 27 at 20h00. Bookings on 076 777 5732. St. Philomena’s Hall is situated at 92 Rippon Road, Sydenham.

Any productions taking place give a high portion of the profits to the St Philomena’s Children’s Home. For more information contact Tamara and Clinton Daniels of Memorable Occasions on 076 777 5732
