Tiaan, Neels & Watershed Pop Up at Warwick SA Cheese Festival in April

The award-winning South African Cheese Festival innovates with a first-of-its-kind experience. In April 2022, cheese and wine lovers can celebrate for eight days with the SA Cheese Festival popping up over four weekends at four exquisite destinationsOn Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April, the festival unfolds into a novel celebration of cheese, wine and more at the magnificent Warwick Wine Estate, at the foot of Simonsberg, between Stellenbosch and Klapmuts. 

Warwick welcomes the “unforgettable” festival 

“The SA Cheese Festival is an outdoor extravaganza enjoyed by many avid followers for the past 19 years … an instant success which is a real pleasure to be a part of,” says Tom Orpen, Warwick Estate’s Global Sales Manager. “At Warwick, we celebrate the beauty of Stellenbosch through an experience which is unrivalled in the region. This new collaboration promises to be an unforgettable adventure that will live long in the memories of those who are lucky enough to attend.”

Countless reasons to join in the fun

According to Johan Ehlers, Chief Executive Officer of Agri-Expo, the organiser of the SA Cheese Festival since 2002, there are umpteen reasons why one should be part of this decadent experience. 

“Come celebrate life with a glass of the region’s finest wines or a Cap Classique, cherish a moment with citrus-styled gin, or just be happy whilst sipping on a craft beer,” Ehlers says. “We carefully selected an array of artisanal food creations, including award-winning, traditional, and handcrafted cheese, from goats’ cheese, Italian cheese, and even flavoured Gouda and Cheddar, from Labneh to Gruberg, from Rockvale to Kasselshoop. Come taste and buy foods with character such as chorizo or kudu, Italian and Spanish salamis, spoil your pallet with honey, pâté, or hummus, and be adventurous with balsamic beads. Add a touch of French flair with a baguette or a croissant and get the picture-perfect moment by choosing olives and tapenades!”

Travel & Taste with celeb chefs and foodies

“We are committed to quality, and we just love people with passion,” Ehlers explains. “That’s why we’ve added the Standard Bank Travel & Taste experiences – an exciting new concept where celebrity chefs and well-known food and wine experts will pop up together with us with three sessions per day. Seating is limited and guests should arrive early to ensure a seat at no extra cost.”

Chef Tiaan Langenegger will share a sneak peek of his brand-new television cooking show on both days, with his actor buddy Neels van Jaarsveld assisting him on Saturday. Also on Saturday, cellarmaster JD Pretoriuswill pair Warwick wines with Dalewood Fromage cheese, and you can also taste Ladismith Cheese with some of South Africa’s top Chenin Blanc’s as put in the spotlight by the Chenin Blanc Association. Long-time favourite celeb chef Jenny Morris will show off her creative flair on Sunday. 

Relax with Watershed vibes 

Guests can relax on the estate’s lawns with ample shaded seating, or can escape to the courtyard, whilst being entertained by top artists. On Saturday, the live music programme boasts the full Watershed band, the popular Jimm Harisson Project, and the duo Sister Sister. Join again on Sunday with artists such as Dehan Marais, Sister Sister, and once again, Watershed. 

Carve your heart out – with cheese! 

According to Ehlers, another fascinating activity is the daily Ladismith Cheese Carving Competition. “Come and unleash your inner artist by trying your hand at cheese carving – after all, April is International Sculpture Month – and there will be great prizes up for grabs!” 

“Become part of our story – one of dedication, commitment, passion and quality,” Ehlers adds. “Join us in celebrating the 2022 SA Cheese Festival at Warwick!”

Jimmy Nevis and Jeremy Loops Back at Kirstenbosch

Yes, it’s official. The popular Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts return to the Garden with a two-show only, limited ticket line-up. Pop/RnB artist Jimmy Nevis will be performing on 20 March, while modern folk singer-songwriter Jeremy Loops performs a week later on 27 March.

Cape Town-born, Jimmy Nevis began dominating the SA music charts at the tender age of 19 with his smash hit Elephant Shoes.

After racking up a slew of No.1 singles, such as Heartboxing, 7764, All About It, Balloon and Hey Jimmy, he is now a household name. His electric live performances never disappoint concert-goers of all ages – and he’s literally ‘stolen the stages’ of some of the biggest festivals and events in sub-Saharan Africa. This year he celebrates his super-successful 10th anniversary of being a South African muso.

Multiple music award-winner Jeremy Loops built a cult-following off the power of his live shows, selling out in London and around the world. The proudly Capetonian has also opened for Twenty One Pilots, while his two acclaimed albums, 2014’s Trading Change and 2018’s Critical Water, and their unique modern folk sound were the calling card for listeners around the globe.

Sarah Struys, Events Manager of Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, says that “we are pleased to end the summer with a return of the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts, where we will be hosting two exclusive concerts with two of Cape Town’s favourite and most loved musicians, in March.”

Pack a hearty summer picnic (or pre-order one from the Kirstenbosch Tea Room or Moyo Restaurant), and bring family and friends to enjoy some of South Africa’s best live music – in arguably one of the world’s most naturally spectacular and stunning acoustic-friendly amphitheaters. Tickets cost R220 for adults and R170 youth (aged 6 to 21 years). Book now online at www.webtickets.co.za or purchase tickets at any Pick n Pay store. All Covid-19 safety protocols will be followed.
