2018 Voorkamerfest

Fri Aug 31, 17:00 - Sun Sep 2, 16:00
Evita se Perron
Evita se Perron in association with The Fugard Theatre presents the 2018 Voorkamerfest

Every year the Voorkamerfest takes place in Darling.. The booking office opens  (Bookings open) 1 July. 

The Voorkamerfest comprises of concerts held in the “voorkamers” (front rooms) of the homes of Darling residents.
The element of excitement and surprise for visitors are - that you do not know which three houses you will visit neither do you know which artists you will see.

One ticket will get you on one route on which you will see three performances.

Taxi departure times: (it is essential that you collect your tickets at least an hour before taxi departure time to avoid missing your ride)
  • Friday 17H00 - R 200
  • Saturday 12H00  - R 250
  • Saturday 17H00 - R 250

R5 of each ticket sold is donated to the projects of The Darling Trust.

Group bookings are possible; no reductions. Please be aware members of your group might see different shows on different routes.

Arrival should be an hour before your taxi departs from Evita se Perron, Arcadia Street in Darling. But do come earlier and enjoy the market with local foods and stalls!

The colour of your ticket will indicate your Taxi Route. Follow the directions to the Taxi Rank

The taxis will take you to 3 theatre homes where we guarantee you will be well entertained by the fabulous line-up of International & SA artists. You will see 3 different 30 minute shows in 3 different venues. If you decide to go on a 2nd or 3rd route please book at the booking office tent. Seats are limited so we suggest you book for the whole weekend asap - you could see a total of 12 different shows.

Performances can be anything from dance, music (classical, jazz, world), poetry, stand-up comedy, circus, mime, drama or cabaret. The venues and performers are different every year and remain a surprise until you arrive!
