Bly Vrydag is bonanza for all lovers of arts, music and books

The Toyota SU Word Festival offers more than 1 000 tickets for this year’s festival at discounts ranging from 20% to 80% on Bly Vrydag [Happy Friday] 29 September 2023. All tickets available on the Bly Vrydag sale will be priced at only R40 each. Several lucky draws and competitions will also take place during the day.
