Redelinghuys – Lavender Festival

Redelinghuys Lavender Festival 1 September 2012

For those that have travelled up the N7 towards Piketberg and swung a sho’t left on the R366 you would know exactly where this quaint little Sandveld town lies. Redelinghuys was originally part of the farm Wittedrift.  Sir George Napier handed it over on 31 December 1841 to a Mr. Hendrik Koetzee, who passed away in 1848. Thereafter a Mr. J.N.L. Redelinghuys bought the farm and offered the Church a piece of the land on the farm as a gift. Redelinghuys is a small dorpie and is most commonly known for their ground roots – Yup Folks, it is potato paradise! Some of the Cape’s best root veg are sourced right there and celebrated annually with a potato festival! The next “BIG” thing to popping out of the Redelinghuys soil is the

SYNERGY LIVE

synergy

For festival-goers Christmas came early, and seven years on Synergy Live promises to be even bigger than what it was - one of Cape Town's most memorable events. In Franschhoek Valley - the Western Cape's own land of milk and honey, where vineyards sag with grapes of world-famous wines and there are even more stars in the sky - Boschendal Estate's green lawns, lush with Spring, will be the backdrop.

Nourishment is provided in usual forms of easy and green-cleansy festival food, or the upmarket option of Boschendal's own picnic basket luncheons, while things to do include the geodesic theatre for
