The first concert in Backsberg's 10th Annual Picnic Concert series, presented by the guys and gals at CapeTalk, is set to be a scorcher with well-known Shortstraw bringing their A-Game on Sunday, 10 February 2019. 

Doors open at 3pm with the opening act - Crosscurrent - starting at 4pm. Shortstraw will take over shortly thereafter at 5pm and the final set ends at 7pm. Tickets cost R200.00 per person via Quicket.

Pre-ordered picnic boxes are available for purchase and each ticket includes a complimentary glass of Backsberg vino (for patrons 18 and over). Backsberg will also be providing a food court offering whereby wines, beer and cider will be available for purchase as well as an assortment of easy foods from Die Worsrol. Delicious sweet treats from Lickity Split will be purchasable too. Great activations - including a build-your-own flower crown station with Bloom Flowerists and something special from CapeTalk - will be present; as well as some fantastic prizes up for grabs.

Join us! After all, there’s nothing better than ending off the weekend lazing under the trees on the sprawling lawns of the Backsberg estate enjoying fine wines, great food and live music by some of the best South African musical entertainment on offer.
