Diary Date

If you don’t manage to get away for a break this time around … then we have something extraspecial for you that’ll make you feel as though you’re on holiday anyway. The magnificent NIROX Sculpture Park is now opening its gates to the public on selected dates for pre-booked picnics and music on the lawns … the first of them being this Sunday (YAY!) Oh-so-divine! The day will be all about delicious food and wine, music by Guy Buttery and Kanada Narahari, yoga (for those who so wish) and appreciation of the magnificent sculptures that are dotted around the park. Take along your friends, family and picnic blankets for a stunning, sunny (we hope) Sunday. Tickets from R100. April 15. Nirox Sculpture Park, 24 Kromdraai Rd, Kromdraai, Krugersdorp.

Bid farewell to a fabulous summer in style. H.O.T Day Out will be hosting an über-fun (as always), outdoor boutique music festival with top South African acts performing across two stages. Only a short drive from Sandton, this festival offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. Not only will the music be groovy, there’ll be ample cocktails aflow, a beer garden, games and activities that’ll keep guests happy for hours. With artists like Kyle Watson feat. Apple Gule, Brett Aitken and DJ Abby Nurock you’re sure to be dancing the day (and night) away. PS – be sure to take your cozzies along for a dip in the river. Tickets from R180. April 27 – 28. Toadbury Hall Country Hotel, Beyers Naudé Dr, Muldersdrift. Details: www.nutickets.co.za
