Full Moon Picnic with Father Christmas at the Afrikaans Language Monument

22 December 2018 from 17:00 – 22:00

The spotlight is on Father Christmas who will visit the iconic Afrikaans Language Monument during the full moon. To relieve some of the pressure on him, Father Christmas has decided to hand out some gifts in advance at the annual Father Christmas Full Moon Picnic at the Taalmonument on Saturday, 22 December 2018 – an evening also in aid of a good cause.

Visitors are encouraged to explore, and there are outdoor games and playgrounds for children. Father Christmas should make his appearance by 19:00, therefore parents should bring their children’s clearly marked gifts to the Visitor Centre beforehand to be included in his bag.

Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets or pre-order one (R300 for two people, or R400 with a basket included) at the Volksmond Coffee Shop on 021 863 2800. Volksmond will be open for coffee, light refreshments and pizza. Please dress warmly and bring a torch.

The evenings are held in aid of “Let’s Read!” the Taalmuseum’s reading project for children, and visitors are encouraged to donate a new or second-hand children’s book.
