Spring time on the West Coast brings an array of wonderful wildflowers. It also means it’s time for the annual Darling Wildflower Show from 14 – 16 September 2018 at the Darling Golf Club. The indoor exhibition of indigenous flowers is fascinating and will spark an interest to get into the nature reserves to discover these many specimens in their natural environment. The show also has activities for the whole family and is not to be missed.

Voorkamerfest 2018: 31 Aug – 2 Sept

voorkamerfest2018.jpgVoorkamerfest is BACK with a passion and renewed energy to enchant and delight the lucky ones who manage to get a ticket.

Voorkamerfest is usually sold-out every year, so prepare yourself for the weekend-comeback of your life: Friday 31 August, Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 September.

For those of you who have never experienced this truly South African cultural experience – this is what you are in for!

Festival-goers arrive at Evita se Perron 8 Arcadia Street in Darling, collect their colour coded tickets for various routes of different colours. They then queue for a taxi ride to their first venue where the first 25 minute performance starts, after which the taxi will take them to the second 25 minute adventure and then a third 25 minute surprise experience, returning thereafter, via the local taxi to Evita se Perron to enjoy the market vibes and connect with friends who have been on different routes, sharing their unique experience all over again! So within 100 minutes, three worlds of magic will be celebrated and new friends will be made. Owners of the homes are the theatre managers for those three days in September. After the years of experience, the people of Darling know how special each one of them has become to the success of this project!

Voorkamerfest was founded in 2004 by Inge Bos and Wim Visser, with help of Pieter-Dirk Uys and the inhabitants of Darling.

Founding sponsor is Stichting Doen (NL)
