On Friday and Saturday (25 & 26 April), the Jowell Quad will be transformed as we host Wynberg’s first ever Concert in the Quad. An ensemble of some of Wynberg’s top musical talent have been hard at work to produce an evening of great songs, ranging from classics such as the Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel, through to some of the latest hits from the last few years. There is even a rumor that our very own Keith Richardson may take to the stage for a number during the second set…

The show starts at 19h00, and on Saturday night, dinner and dessert will be included in the ticket price of R100 per person. You are welcome to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy with your dinner.

The show on Friday night does not include dinner, and tickets are on sale for R30. No alcohol will be allowed on Friday night.

Bookings can be made via Sharon Bing (sbing@wbhs.org.za)
