Night of Wonders at Hazendal


2 October 2019  -  Hazendal

Hazendal Wine Estate is celebrating 320 years since its establishment and 25 years of the Voloshin family ownership with the launch of an initiative to introduce the concept of education through play to children in disadvantaged communities.

Be transported into a world of wonders and magic. Enjoy a spectacular dinner show performed by the South African Circus Arts Academy and College of Magic and complemented by a fine-dining feast and Hazendal’s award-winning wines. A guest MC, an auction of extraordinary experiences and live music entertainment will round off the evening.

Spreading the Wonders

One of the new gems at Hazendal is Wonderdal, an edutainment centre for children aged 5 to 13, the first of its kind in South Africa. Wonderdal combines advanced technological elements and creatively designed spaces, complete with an extensive range of learning resources to teach children in a playful and interactive manner about topics from their school curriculum.

Education and community outreach have always been close to our hearts. Inspired by Wonderdal, we have developed an educational program which serves as an important vehicle to enable children and teachers from disadvantaged communities to experience the concept of learning through play. Our goal is to make some of the wonders of Wonderdal accessible to them in their own environment.

To achieve this, we have joined forces with the Anna Foundation, which established 18 afterschool centres reaching over 700 disadvantaged children in the Winelands and the greater Cape Town, to address their educational needs. Our program will consist of portable science kits, plant growing kits and book libraries, as well as training materials for educators, all packaged in our WonderBox, to create an enriching, stimulating and inspiring learning experience for children and teachers alike.

Featuring auctions of unique items and experiences, our Night of Wonders aims to support as many children in need as possible with the funds raised. Your support in this evening is, therefore, essential for its success.
