What is the frenchSUNSET picnic about? It’s a quick escape to the heart of Parisian fare with scrummy eats, live entertainment, poetry and cooking lessons. There’s no need for a visa, ’cause it’s happening at the gorgeous Glenellen Farm in Hout Bay, so there’s no excuse to miss out!
The frenchSUNSET pop-up picnics started in 2014 and was hugely successful, so on 9 April 2016, you can bring your picnic blanket, basket and happy vibe to enjoy a line-up which include the likes of:
- Comedian Siv Ngesi as the event’s host
- Poet Kyle Louw
- Acoustic Elements
- Upcoming french singer Savannah
- Mapumba and band
- Soul Power Circus Band
- Dj Didier
- Dj Ozy and more
Apart from the fab line-up, visitors will receive a few picnic starters like French cheese, baguettes and a bottle of wine to add onto their own picnic stash.
There’ll be something for everyone in the family, even a jumping castle and other fun activities for the kids (and kids under 15 get in for FREE)! Don’t miss out on French chefs Nadège Lepoittevin-Dassé and Kamel Hamzaoui who will be enticing those interested with cooking tips and pastry how-to’s. There will be a raffle with amazing prizes; the main prize being a trip for two to Europe.
Visitors should remember to pack a jersey or an extra blanket, to keep cozy during the the movie that will be screened after sunset.
