Tulbagh Arts Festival 2015

The Tulbagh Arts Festival is in it's fourth year of its celebration of the arts in all their varied forms. The festival takes place on the weekend of the 11-13 September 2015 at various locations in the lovely Boland village of Tulbagh, less than two hours from Cape Town.

Tulbagh is South Africa's third oldest town after Cape Town and Stellenbosch and has always been associated with the 'finer things in life' - art, music, architecture. In fact, Church Street is today the largest concentration of National Monuments in a single street anywhere in South Africa.

In this spirit of 'finer things', the Tulbagh Arts Festival offers a relaxed weekend where classical music, classical cross-over music, art exhibitions, theatre, architectural talks, literature,food and wine are enjoyed against a backdrop of the spectacular Cape Winelands.

Last year's festival opened with an art exhibition by Tina Nell. Other highlights includes the re-launch of the Christo Coetzee Art Gallery, a dinner with Author Niël Stemmet, morning photographic excursions, a talk by Hans Fransen, guitar and violin performanrs, architecture walk abouts, crafts and food markets, antique auctions, a Mozarts requiem, and comedy by Emile Minnie and Godfrey Johnson.

This festival presents a great opportunity to celebrate the history, beauty and showcase the talents of the people of the Tulbagh Valley. It also coincides the Spring wildflowers season so several varieties of rare indigenous bulbs that bloom only in this fertile valley can be seen.
