Once again we are drawing attention to a forthcoming Marico event, the Bosman weekend , now in it's nineteenth  year. It will be noticed that the format remains similar to that of previous years, but an attempt has been made to bring about a renewal of content.

Bookings are now open for the Bosman Weekend in October (17th to 19th October 2014) in Groot Marico.

This year the programme for the annual Bosman Weekend will be featuring an interesting variety of performances, lectures, workshops ,  art exhibitions  and music. There will also be time to share at a leisurely pace, the company, the ambience of bush and fireplace - and  excellent performances by well known artists  included in the weekend package.
