Uplands Festival 2019
The Uplands Festival takes place at Uplands school from 24 to 26 May 2019. We collaborate to bring artists, entertainers and crafts to the local community, providing a platform for families to enjoy a weekend of great entertainment, and raising funds for local charities.
Live music from Wonderboom, The Drakensberg Boys Choir, Soul Taxi, Blonde Salad, Solid Ground, High End Blues band, Minanzi Mbira Band and Voodoo Kudu.
Art-lovers are encouraged to attend the opening of the ever-popular art exhibition and browse to find the perfect piece to take home. In addition to the Sports Derby, there will be Stadium Eventing and Show Jumping held at the beautiful Uplands Equestrian Centre.
On Sunday, there will be a variety of MTB (mountain bike) races, making use of the superb MTO trails with over 750 entrants, and their supporters. We have a 15km Fun Ride, a 30km Challenge and the 55km Classic. This year we have added a 15km Trail Run and a 5km Fun Run.
The hub of the activity boasts an up-market street market with numerous food trucks and the festive live music hall with a champagne bar, gin bar and ice-cold beer on tap.
