You can’t miss this – the Hogsback Gardens and much more over the Heritage long weekend 21-24 September 2012

The Hogsback Spring Saunter promises to be a colourful and fun affair with plenty on offer for the whole family.  Glorious gardens both formal and wild –  a R60 ticket will afford you entry into all the magnificent private show gardens.  For the artistically inclined there will be a bevvy of crafters displaying their wares and as well as a host of local artists’ pottery, jewellery, art and landscape photographs. For the adventurous – there will be a guided mountain bike cycle trail through the forest, or if a horse ride is more you thing – then that’ll be on offer too.  All this activity needs to be nurtured – so the local eateries and hostelries will be putting on their best for the hungry and thirsty.   Pub screens will be showing the weekend sport and if you’re a Tolkein fan – the three films of The Lord of the Rings Epic will be shown on a big screen on on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.  The Rose Theatre will host a candelit Poetry Reading on Friday evening and on Saturday will host a performance of the musical Simply Broadway – a Grahamstown festival hit.
