Spier Light Art Festival

Each night during this period, visitors will be able to experience a dazzling array of interactive light and sound artworks throughout the historic Stellenbosch farm.

Star attraction of the event:

A key work on display is In die sterre geskryf – Written in the stars by Berco Wilsenach, produced in 2009 as part of a body of work called Project for the Blind Astronomer – an artistic investigation into different decoding systems with which our visible night sky can be mapped and explained to a visually impaired audience. The panels are lit from within, creating an effect of thousands of dots floating in midair. This creates an experience of endless space and an infinitive number of dots reflecting within each of the panels.

Arrive early, and enjoy a light dinner before the procession starts:

Settle in for a farm-to-table feast at Eight Restaurant
Enjoy a sundowner or dinner at the Spier Hotel Restaurant
Alternatively, Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery will be serving up ‘low and slow-smoked’ meats.
Join us on the wine tasting deck for a cheese platter and a bottle of Signature wine at R110, or a cheese and charcuterie platter, including a bottle of Signature wine at R180. Wine tasting closes at 19:00.

Entrance to the Light Art Festival is free from 10 December to 31 January. Lights switch on at 20:30.
