Announcing the 1st edition of Littlegig at Sterrekopje: a music, performance art and food experience at the Winelands’ most spectacular new property. A Franschhoek Literary Festival fringe event. 50 tickets only. 5pm til 11pm.


As founders of the Lamu Writing Retreat, things literary are close to our hearts. Which is why we’re creating a Franschhoek Literary Festival fringe event. In-real-life headliners at this 14th edition of the FLF include major award-winning authors Tsitsi Dangarembga, Damon Galgut and Lionel Shriver.

And as huge admirers of deeply creative and soulful spaces – of which there will only ever be a few – we recognise another dream collaboration opportunity when we see one:

Sterrekopje Farm is the latest high-end sanctuary in Franschhoek, and is quite unlike any other. Dutch founders Fleur Huijskens and Nicole Boekhoorn have created a place of community where the Sterrekopje family – from chefs and farmers to practitioners and artists – come together to share, teach, nurture and connect. It is a celebration of ancestral luxury and conscious living.

We won’t be announcing our full line-up ahead of time, because part of the Littlegig at Sterrekopje experience is the wonder of surprise. You can expect world-class live music, theatre and performance art in spectacular locations around the farm, a farm-to-table dinner, and magnificence everywhere you look.

Don’t worry, you’re in good hands…

Before we became the Lamu Writing Retreat, Littlegig was “SA’s most luscious, over-the-top boutique festival” (Sunday Times Lifestyle).

And because the Sterrekopje property – with its incredible gardens by Leon Kluge and precious collection of one-of-a-kind furniture – is otherwise closed to outsiders, you’re in for a rare treat.

Littlegig at Sterrekopje will be an evening of music, food and performance art on Sat 14 May from 5pm til 11pm. Only 50 tickets available. R1,500 each. Accommodation not included, although Sterrekopje has several beautiful rooms available. Email them for pricing and reservation details.

Please note that if you are staying at Sterrekopje, you don’t need to buy an event ticket through Web Tickets as it will be part of the accommodation package.
