Red@Beau Constantia

RED @ BEAU is a dedicated event to launch the Reddam Sports Foundation; A foundation that is committed to giving deserving students the opportunity to attend Reddam House – a fitting sentiment in that Reddam is Latin for “give back”.

In order to raise funds for the Reddam Sports Foundation, we have lined up two of the hottest acts in South Africa: LOCNVILLE and Freshlyground, to perform at Beau Constantia.

Our dress code for the day is strictly casual, with a splash of red…

If you are going to join us for RED @ BEAU, please remember the following:
• Cash, should you wish to purchase something from our Food Trucks, or drinks from our bar setups
• Blankets, as it can get chilly at night

** Please note; in the interest of responsible alcohol use and your own safety, we encourage you to make use of an UBER or taxi, rather than driving through. The estate will be CLOSED to vehicular traffic on the day, with limited parking available at Constantia Nek.

Tickets are available from Webtickets at R350.00 for pupils and R500.00 for adults.

Date: 24 February 2018
