It’s another weekend and the good thing is that temperatures are rising now, giving people the opportunity to be flexible with their plans.
July is not only a cold month, but also a month to host weddings, parties, performances and even church conferences.
It is also an opportunity for the arts sector to host more events since the lifting of the Covid-19 curfew.
