Father Christmas Full Moon picnic

Enjoy a full moon picnic at the Taalmonument.

The Father Christmas Full Moon picnic takes place at the Taalmonument in Paarl on Friday December 1, between 5pm and 10pm.

Father Christmas should make his appearance by 7pm, therefore parents should bring their children’s clearly marked gifts to the Visitor Centre beforehand to be included in his bag.

Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets or pre-order one at R300 for two people, or R400 with a basket included at the Volksmond Coffee Shop on 021 863 2800. Volksmond will be open for coffee and light refreshments.

Dress warmly and take a torch.

The evenings are held in aid of ‘Let’s Read!’, the language museum’s reading project for children, and visitors are encouraged to donate a new or second-hand children’s book.

Tickets are R30 for adults, R10 for South African students and pensioners, R5 for children, and those under six years enter free.

Tickets from Computicket or at the gate, and no booking is required.
