Woordfees, the literary and art festival of the University of Stellenbosch has made quite a name for itself since its inception in 2000, and it attracts students as well as art and literature enthusiasts from all over the country. Not only is Woordfees a celebration of South African written, visual and performing arts, it is also a celebration of Stellenbosch.
Annually at this time, the streets and public spaces within central Stellenbosch are flooded with visitors, while restaurants and pubs are temporarily converted into improvised art theatres, galleries and concert venues.
During Woordfees week, taking place from the 1st to the 10th of March, the Lanzerac Hotel & Spa will be offering a complimentary shuttle service to and from Stellenbosch town on the hour. Guests will be collected from the Hotel’s reception area and dropped off on the corner of Drostdy and Van Riebeeck Streets. The shuttle will return to the Hotel at ten past the hour, every hour between 09h00 and 16h00.
What’s more, a special Woordfees menu will be served in the Taphuis at a cost of R270 per person, which includes two starters to share, a delicious main dish and a complimentary Lanzerac Angus Ale or glass of Lanzerac Premium wine.
When not attending the enthralling events on the Woordfees programme, visitors can enjoy one of the many activities on offer at Lanzerac, like dining at any of the four eateries – the Manor Kitchen, Taphuis, Craven Lounge or Lanzerac Deli; indulging in delicious wine tastings as well as wine and chocolate pairings in the Tasting Room; or unwinding with relaxing treatments in the Lanzerac Spa.
