John Dobson returns to conduct a festival weekend

Posted on Sat June 1, 2024.

From the 5 to 7 July the Stormers coach takes the baton once more to conduct a weekend of his own spectacular design.

Friday 5 July The Sin Drinkers

Thanks to John Friday 5th July sees John Maytham and Emma Kotze grace the stage of the Belanti with their hit show 'The Sin Drinkers' by Louis  Viljoen. The Sin Drinkers recently sold out at the Baxter. John is no slouch on the creative front and he describes it as the best play he's ever seen. 


Saturday 6 July AM The opening of the cycle loop

Saturday morning will see us riding the cycle loop with John  for a hello to all the farm sponsors of the  wonderful loop which wends it's way through 8 of Barrydale's most beautiful farms with a pop in at Joubert Tradauw wine Estate and the Metanoia Gin distillery along the way.

Saturday 6 July mid day the Art of Steak workshop

Hosted by Greg Bax of the award winning (incl SA's Best Steakhouse) Rare Grill based in Newlands, Cape Town.


Saturday 6 July South Africa vs Ireland Test

A peach of a day (the cycle loop is loaded with them) ends with John Dobson, John Maytham and a mystery Stormers player hosting the viewing of an epic Rugby test match between the worlds number 1 rated team and the world champs in the Belanti. 




A not to be missed weekend.
