A group of individuals have worked to put together a fundraising concert in partnership with Shimmy Beach Club. TUTUFEST builds on the work of Nikki Harding who raised funds to secure the future of Ayola, a young boy who was orphaned by his father days before Christmas last year.

In the aftermath of this senseless act, a number of people came together to do what they could to support Ayola and to safeguard his future. Ayola’s name has also served as inspiration for this initiative: to support “all young orphans left alone”.

Tickets for the event are available via NuTickets and will cost R220 for general access, and R425 for VIP. Guests can purchase a tutu at R60 each, and will receive the tutu on arrival and are encouraged to wear them during event.
