Heritage Weekend: Northwards - Pride and Joy

Sat Sep 9, 14:00 - Sat Sep 9, 16:30

Holy Family College


Standing proudly on the edge of Parktown Ridge, Northwards is a Joburg icon and Sir Herbert Baker’s most romantic mansion. 

Built for the flamboyant John and Jose Dale Lace, Northwards is filled with stories: of glittering galas and scintillating scandals, of financial failures and ruinous fires, of reconstruction and survival. 

And no-one knows Northwards better than the inimitable Neil Viljoen. So, join us for an exclusive guided tour with Neil as he takes us from the cellar to the attics, and feel a glimmer of the glamour that passed through the great hall of Northwards all those years ago. 

The bus will drop you off at Northwards and collect you after the house tour.
