The West Coast is buzzing with activity as the Spring flowers blossom and little towns come alive with intimate festivals – Oh Darling don’t miss this one… Homes in Darling are the set for the 9th VoorkamerFest (Front-Room Festival) offering a unique, multi-cultural experience in an exciting and unconventional format…
Voorkamer kicks off on 31 Aug, through to the 2 September 2012, this is the time of year when the darling’s of Darling open up their homes to host professional performances by local and international artists. You name it, Music, drama, mime, comedy and cabaret are performed in the lounges or “voorkamers” of Darling homes, with their owners hosting you for the duration of the show.
Similar to the amazing race just confined in a small dorpie, the starting point is at Evita se Perron, as with any good show there is outside entertainment, wine tasting, arts, crafts and food stalls. Which you can indulge in at the start and end of your adventure.
Hop on board a Darling taxi, and your driver will take you from home to home on a number of set routes – each route features three homes and three performances. The beauty of this format is the element of surprise – You will have no idea which performances you will see on your route, nor which homes you will visit. It is an exciting and unpredictable cultural experience with a difference!
