Acoustic Picnic with Nibs van der Spuy - 19th Sept!

Our first ACOUSTIC PICNIC was a blast, so it’s time to do it again! This is a Social Distancing Picnic event where you get to book out a cool Picnic Spot on our lush lawns in front of the venue while enjoying LIVE MUSIC, picnic snacks, the warm sun and of course the secure knowledge you are social distancing.

And for our next one, we welcome NIBS VAN DER SPUY! This legend is one of the most extraordinary and exciting, world acoustic guitarists and exports to come out of South Africa. Raised in the fertile province of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Nibs immersed himself in his natural environment to formulate a truly consummate and original sound. Growing up with the Beatles and learning first hand from traditional Zulu Maskandi guitarists, he quickly soaked up a rich tapestry of his close surroundings and beyond.

After playing the local folk scene around South Africa for years and gathering up a loyal following, his big stage break came after supporting Crosby, Stills and Nash on their 1996 South African tour. After that he was signed to the SHEER (South African World Music label) where he has released over 10 albums.

Join us on SUNDAY 19 SEPTEMBER from 11am. Music starts at 12 noon.

This 25km Adventure Race is a fun concept of combining the following sport disciplines: 18km mountain biking, 6km running/ hiking, kayaking (use of a stable 2-seater kayak & paddles are included in the entry fee) and orienteering/navigation.
 
In this shorter version of adventure racing, you only need to be able to read a printed Google Map to orienteer yourself from point to point.
 
This is the only race like this in South Africa!
 
Beginners, more advanced athletes and the hard core racers out there are all welcome!
 
We’ll also be open after the race to serve Breakfast/Brunch and enjoy LIVE MUSIC from the rocking Jacques Mouton duo.
