Lights! Action! Atmosphere! It’s all happening!

Smithfield’s very own Platteland Preview 2016 is here!

Getting it all underway are pre-show cocktails followed by captivating music and song with Tonya Koenderman in "Born to Diva".

Ahead of us is a great programme which promises to appeal to a wide audience, including as it does, not only fascinating theatre but also good eating and exhibitions of the type of art for which our town is well known.

Congratulations to the people behind the Preview; the organising committee and the many individuals who have thrown themselves into the demanding job of bringing to fruition the idea of an introduction to the Grahamstown Festival.

Platteland Preview is a terrific idea and the 2016 version provides us all with an opportunity to celebrate in style.


Die feesgordyne het behoorlik begin ooptrek op Smithfield vir ons jaarlikse Platteland Preview. ‘n Mens kon voel dinge is aan die woel met die lus vir lekker vermaak uit die boonste rakke: kuns,drama,musiek en smulkos om elke draai! Daar lê nog ‘n naweek daarvan voor!
