Uplands Festival 2016 is here!!Art Exhibitions shows and some awesome cycling fun, Uplands Festival is a must! Starting on the 27 May through till the 29 May at R30 per car for the whole weekend! The Festival is on the beautiful Uplands country estate in White River, Mpumalanga. Uplands festival started out as a small fundraising event to help the school and grew into a festival that draws in thousands of people annually.
What will be coming to you this year? The opening cocktail party will be starting at 6pm on the 27th of May and it is open to anyone to attend. While the next day all the fun starts. In the art world you will be experiencing not only 23 exceptionally talented artists but also a few of Uplands School’s local artists. The fun doesn’t end there! Johnny Clegg is in the house! The previous years the tickets were sold out! So if you are a die-hard fan then you definitely have to stand in line early for the tickets! And that’s not all, there will be a few Equestrian and Derby Events as well – it still needs to be confirmed by the organizers.
If you are a sport nut like me then you will definitely be participating in at least one of the following cycling races the 55km Marathon or the 30km Half Marathon. And if you have little ones then the 15km is perfect for your older kids and the 5km for your very young ones. The cycling events will take place on the Sunday 29th of May. The starting time for the 55km is 08:00 the 30km will start 30 minutes after that and then 15km starts at 08:40 and 5km at 08:50. So don’t miss out on this amazing event!!
Now, where do you want to rest your head for the nights? Well the Casterbridge Hollow Boutique Hotel is offering a special for the duration of the Festival, for 2 people sharing it will be R960! How great is that? You can check out their website for more information!
SO I know what I would be doing if I were you! Going online and getting a ticket for Mr Clegg and then getting ready to do some serious mountain biking!!
