‘Tis very nearly the balmy month of February, and the ever-so balmy suburb of Constantia is, in my opinion, a particularly lovely place to spend the late afternoons and evenings.  So, I’m very much looking forward to the start, this coming Friday, of a new night market at the Constantia Waldorf School.

Here’s the scoop:

Enjoy lanterns and firelight, savour mouthwatering scents from delicious wholesome food, shop for craft, organic vegetables and products and listen live music filling the air, all providing a perfect ambiance to settle into the weekend.

The Constantia Waldorf Night Market opens on Friday 29 January 2010 at the School Sports Hall from 5 to 9 pm and thereafter every last Friday of the month (excl. school holidays).

Little children are invited to attend Little Red Riding Hood at the Puppet theatre at 1730 while children from class 7 to 9 are welcome to attend the Teen Disco in the Drama Hall from 1900 to 2100. Those wishing to dance their socks off must register with Katja Ratcliffe, the parent organizing the disco Tel: 0829674414. There will be a Drumming Workshop on the sports field at 1730. Drums will be provided. Call Nannette during office hours 0217942103

This is a green event, focusing on re-use, recycle and re-invent. Learn about growing your own organic vegetables and experience holistic health therapies. Soil for Life will present tours of their organic biodynamic gardens.

Health Studies will be present a workshop entitled “Values in Health Care- a spiritual approach”

World renowned luthier, guitar and harmonica player Marc Maingard, will entertain us his special brand of acoustic, folk and blues music with guest appearance by past pupil, Morganna Newcombe, flautist.

Entrance is free and secure parking is available at R10 per car.

For further info on the night market contact John 0826310421.  Follow us on Facebook (Constantia Waldorf Events) or our website www.waldorfconstantia.co.za.

Sounds very much like my cup of tea… though I’m guess I’ll be giving the Teen Disco a skip.

PS, if anyone have any idea what exactly a ‘luthier‘ might be, I’m rather eager to find out…
