Visitors are welcome to visit the gallery, the gallery shop, the bookshop and the poetry garden and have a cup of coffee and something to eat in the coffee shop.

Valentynsaand saam met Koos van der Merwe

Wil jy ’n heerlike Valentynsaand met pragtige nostalgiese liefdesmusiek en heerlike wyn bywoon?

Sorg dan dat jy nie Koos van der Merwe se Valentynskonsert op Vrydag 15 Februarie in die romantiese Bôrdienghuis-teater by die Breytenbach-sentrum in Wellington misloop nie.

“Een aand onder die klank van die wysies van omhelsing doen dinge met jou binnekant. Koos se nuwe vertoning, ‘Ek hou van jou’  met ou warm gunstelinge en splinternuwe musiek van die hart en die vel maak die liefde wakker.”

Die konsert begin 15 Februarie om 20:00 in Die Bôrdienghuis op die hoek van Burger-en Malherbestraat. Wyn en pizza’s kan reeds van 18:00 gekoop word.

Kaartjies kos R140 per persoon en kan bespreek word by teater@breytenbachsentrum.co.za of 021 873 2786.

Gerald Clark & The Boys from Praque

Die talentvolle en gewilde blues-sanger en musikant Gerald Clark, ’n oud-Stellenbosser wat ook al in Wellington gebly het, hou op Saterdag 16 Februarie 2019 ’n spesiale konsert op die buiteverhoog van Die Bôrdienghuis by die Breytenbach-sentrum in Wellington.

The musicians joining him are some of the finest and most talented Czech Republic has to offer and they regularly serve as backing for international  Blues/Country and Folk stars touring in Eastern Europe.

They form a formidable backing to Clark’s original songwriting style which is very deeply entrenched with blues and soul tweaked with a twist of folk and country ballads.

The audience can expect a very tight,well-rehearsed band with an original fresh sound. A combination of international experience that these boys from Czech accumulated over the years and the magic that Clark has to offer.

Die vertoning begin om 20:00 en pizza’s en drinkgoed kan van 18:00 gekoop word. Kaartjies kos R150 per persoon. En kan bespreek word by teater@breytenbachsentrum.co.za of 021 873 2786.
