Summer Sunset Concerts at Kirstenbosch starting soon …
Only four more Sundays to go until summer officially starts! We all know what signifies the start of summer (well, in my mind anyway) – it’s the first Old Mutual Summer Sunset Concerts at Kirstenbosch!
The concerts are the perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon – take a blanket and picnic and spend a few hours in the garden before heading over to the concert area or just arrive as the gates open and find a sunny spot (or a shady spot) and relax until the show begins. The venue opens at 4pm with most of the concerts starting at 5.30pm and the venue closes at 8pm.
Ive been to a number of concerts and I never get tired of them; the setting is just too beautiful and for me the concert is just long enough to have a great afternoon (and early evening!) but you can still get home in time to be organised for the start of the new working week the next day!
Prices range from R75 to R120 for adults, depending on the performer and there is a great line-up for the 2010 / 2011 series with Just Jinger kicking off procedures on November 21st. Unfortunately I’ll miss this one; we’ve got tickets to the premiere of the movie ‘Spud’.
