The Mother City Queer Project, Let the Summer begin! December in Cape Town
The MCQP party takes place in December in Cape Town. Each year the theme is different. More than 10,000 people attend the event. MCQP, which started in 1994 as a highlight on the Cape Town gay calendar, has grown into South Africa’s biggest dress-to-theme party attended by all sorts of fun-loving creatives, from all over the world.
Taking place on Saturday, 16 December 2017, Africa’s biggest and longest running costume party will be presented for the 24th time, attracting thousands from across the country and even globally.
It will be a spectacle like no other with a production that promises dark forces, mystical creatures, characters from Game of Thrones and from the time of Merlin; a gathering of knights, kings and queens, royalty and warriors, bloodthirsty animals, monsters and other grave and demented creatures.
And as from a land far, far away with castles, kingdoms and ancient cities from a past time, the event will return to the Castle of Good Hope for this gothic spectacular, which celebrates its own 351 years existence this year.
We’re going bigger, better and bolder. Hundreds of wannabe Jon Snows, Tyrion Lannisters, Daenerys Targaryens, Khaleesi’s, the Amazon woman- Brienne of Tarth, Merlin or other creatures of the night will descent on ‘Cape Landing’ this summer to follow the dark knights of doom at the event. It’s going to be a MCQP like never before.
There will be 3 price stages depending on when you buy your tickets – the earlier – the cheaper.
Camelot VIP Ticket includes a complimentary Bar Tab Card for your use and ease to get complimentary drinks at any bar, fast access door entry and more….
Who will you become when you walk through the castle gates?
As with anything it’s all about location, location, location! And there’s no better setting than Cape Town for this free-spirited event. To change the scenery, the MCQP Party Cape Town has rocked several iconic venues in and around the Mother City. MCQP is not just a dress-up party. It’s a place where people get together without judgement and express themselves as they want.
