We are very, very excited to announce HERSCHFEST!


Herschfest is a live music event taking place at 6.00pm on Wednesday the 2nd of October 2019 and its aim is to provide a platform for our super talented Herschel students to freely express themselves musically.

The Herschel senior school garden will be transformed into the most magical (as in SERIOUSLY MAGICAL!) of performance settings with amazing lighting (as in SERIOUSLY AMAZING!) and professional sound (you guessed it ... SERIOUSLY PROFESSIONAL!). Dare we say it’s going to be like nothing you would have experienced at any school before! Yes, we dare ... its 100% going to be like nothing you have experienced at any school (perhaps even anywhere) before!

All you need to do is come along with your picnic blankets and relax on our lawn and let yourself be entertained by our incredible musicians who will be playing a mixture of live contemporary (rock and pop) music for all to enjoy. Delicious food, cool-drinks and hot beverages will be available from a variety of sustainable (i.e. no plastic) food-trucks – please support them!

Did we mention that it’s going to be SERIOUSLY MAGICAL and AMAZING!

Tickets are R100 for adults and R80 for scholars and are available right here, right now!
