Hillside Concert for healthy rivers

2008-07-16 00:00

This Sunday’s Hillside Concert at the Botanical Gardens features Magna Carta; Southern Gypsey Queen; the Hairy Legged Lentil Eaters; Ilan Lax and Friends; Zephyr and the Ryan Calder Band.

Funds raised from the concert will be donated to the Duzi-uMngeni Conservation Trust (Duct), a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to improving the health of the uMsunduzi and uMngeni Rivers. Duct has active committees in Howick, Pietermaritzburg and Durban. Funds received by Duct from this event will be dedicated to the maintenance of river care teams.

Duct engages a multitude of government bodies, lobbying for greater resources to be allocated to the rehabilitation and preservation of our urban rivers. As one of Duct’s patrons, Dr Ian Player, has put it, “if a river is sick, it shows that a city is sick”.

Tickets for Sunday’s concert will be available at the gate. Gates open at 10 am. The Red Door will be running a wine and malt bar. Food and soft drinks will be on sale. The main entrance and car park (with car guards) of the gardens will be open for the public on the day. Picnic hampers can be ordered in advance from the restaurant at 033 344 2207. Tickets available at Parklane Spar.
