Windmeul Rd, Northern Paarl, Western Cape
This outdoor concert venue really is a charming place to enjoy a night out under the stars. A large grassy area is cordoned off to create an intimate space, with chairs for those who opt out of sitting on blankets. Picnic baskets can be pre-ordered or brought from home, with wine, coffee and other snacks on sale too. Part of the Boland Cellar, the Wynvlieg is easy to find, and just about an hour’s drive out of Cape Town in the mountains of Northern Paarl. If you hit the town, you’ve gone too far.
There is a large parking area, but one should arrive a little earlier if you want to avoid parking too far from the theatre. A torch, blankets and some cash is necessary, as there are no ATM speed points available. There are portaloos on standby, which are clean and tidy.
Lit with lanterns and fire-pits, the general ambience of the venue is friendly and magical – a great place to bring anyone who enjoys music and the outdoors.
