Out Of Africa Festival

Come join us this Summer 29th June 2024 for our first ever African festival here at Drovers. Celebrating all things African. Most of you know we are South African. And when you come from Africa the African drum still beats strongly in your blood. When we left our corporate lives in London behind and bought Drovers Rest Farm, near Hay on wye, on the border of Herefordshire and Wales, we tapped into our African roots to add that unique touch that is us. So anyone who has visited us, knows we definitely have the African vibe. From our luxury Safari Tents, to cooking all our feasts over the fires, just as we did in Africa. And we always have a lekker warm welcome for all our guests.

This event has a fantastic line up of artists and is set to be a real Jorl. This also brings diversity to the countryside something we are really passionate about. We will have gorgeous african street food (samoosas, roti rolls, bunny chows, boerie rolls, pap and vleis, puto arancini balls with chakalaka, melk tart, peppermint crisp tart, koeksisters to name a few), african craft stalls too for you to enjoy. The Sat All Day event will be from 11.00am-10.00pm with acts starting at 3.00pm Tickets are £50 pp. Our Headliner will be launching her book at this event too

Weekend accommodation with additional African activities is available on the Farm for a 2 night minimum stay from Friday, so you can enjoy the African vibe for longer. More information below. If you are stying onsite you do not have to purchase a car parking ticket. But only 1 car is allowed per accommodation.
