The spoken word component of the evening will be represented by wordsmith Romeo Maasdorp, slam poet Siphosethu Phikelela and the youthful poet and rapper Vusumuzi Mpofu.
The Buya Afrika drummers from Langa will kick off the evening with their energetic rhythms.
There will be food on sale. Entry is free and donations are welcome. The event will be livestreamed so that people outside of Cape Town are able to watch the programme.
The Cape Cultural Collective is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
