The award-winning and versatile entertainer Emo Adams will once again ascend Paarl Mountain to thrill his old and new fans with a brilliant picnic concert at the Afrikaans Language Monument on Friday, 8 December. It forms part of the Concert Series, adored by residents, foreigners and tourists, in aid of the ‘Let’s Read!’ literacy project for children.
This extremely popular actor, singer, presenter and producer has gained fame with his roles in ‘District 6: The Musical’ (he is the only actor that performed all the roles) and ‘Kat & the Kings’ as well as music albums such as ‘Tall, Dark & Afrikaans’, TV series and his chat show, ‘Jou Show met Emo’, which is one of the most popular programmes on kykNET. So make this an unregrettable event by simply booking.
The show starts at 20:00 in the Garden Theatre – a smaller sibling of the famous Paarl Amphitheatre – on the soft lawn right at the foot of the monument while the sun’s last soothing rays fade away. Visitors are welcome to explore the scenic surroundings via the footpaths while the children entertain themselves in the playground. Bring your own drinks (no glass) and picnic basket or order one at the enlarged and improved Volksmond Coffee Shop on 021 863 2800. Coffee, light refreshments, wine and beer will also be on sale.
Tickets are available at Computicket and the Language Monument at R140 for adults, R130 for students and R70 for children under 13. Bring a blanket or pillow and warm clothes. Safe parking is available and entry is controlled. Unfortunately, no dogs or fires are allowed. The next picnic concerts play host to The Rockets (28 January 2018), Riana Nel (3 February), Elvis Blue (17 February) en Die Heuwels Fantasties (24 March).
