Celebrate the colourful and diverse culture of South Africa this Heritage Day weekend at The Shebeen restaurant in Sun City. Previously, shebeens were a meeting place in the townships for activists, liberals, intellectuals and artists who would secretly vibe together late into the night. Come experience this authentic township hospitality on Saturday 22 and Monday 24 September 2018 at the award-winning Sun City Resort.
The festivities kick-off from 12h00 on the Saturday and guests are encouraged to dress in their traditional attire or other proudly South African outfits. Guests will be welcomed by traditional African dancers on arrival before being immersed in tantalising aromas, sights and sounds of South Africa inside the restaurant. There will be a variety of food options, including a scrumptious braai with an array of popular side dishes. Bands and DJs on the bill include Divinity Duo, Lungi Duo, Lady Lace Trio, DJ Choco, the Morning After Band, and Clinton Viljoen. They will take turns to entertain the crowds from 12h00 to 21h00 on the Saturday and from 12h00 to 18h00 on the Monday.
Tickets are R250 for Sun MVG cardholders and R300 for non members. Tickets will be available to purchase at The Shebeen. Included in the ticket price is access to the Heritage celebrations, a food and beverage voucher booklet worth R200 and access to the vibrant Afriganza show at Segaetsho Cultural Village, next to The Shebeen. Residents staying at Sun City’s hotels over the Heritage Day weekend and kids under 12 can enter for free. However, they will need to purchase the food and beverage voucher booklet for R200.
