THE long-awaited programme booklets for the 2015 Platteland Preview festival have landed in Smithfield.
Pieter Swanepoel (pictured with his mother Irene Swanepoel, director of the 2015 festival) collected them in Bloemfontein at the weekend, and they are now being distributed to key points in town.
Designed by long-standing festival friend Crystelle Wilson of Durban, the programme will be available to show-goers and will be a useful, long-lasting momento of the Preview and of their visit to our dorp.
It includes info about all the shows as well as a map showing points of interest for visitors and info about what's going on in Smithfield during the festival weekend.
Each programme since the start of the festival showcases a local landscape scene on the cover. This year is no exception; in fact if you look carefully you can see the mountain behind the town with its letters spelling out the date Smithfield was established.
