New partnerships, new ventures and new memories at TLM Spring!
Spring is in the air and the Linden Market is around the corner on Saturday the 28th of September. Come celebrate the new season as the home of TLM, the Botanical Gardens in Emmarentia, come to life. We have so many exciting new endeavours for the upcoming market that we would love to share with you.
CLASSICS IN THE GARDEN WITH CLASSIC 1027
In line with celebrating the new season, The Linden Market is also celebrating two very exciting new partnerships. We are thrilled to announce Classic1027 as our media partner. Classic 1027 has recently rebranded and is all about making the great Classical music genre more accessible. Introducing a more chilled out space in the gardens to the market, Classic1027 is bringing a 6-piece orchestra who will be playing the classics and some popular music that you might recognise. Classics in the Garden will take place between 12:00-14:00 on the day – and will be a tranquil beautiful space, where you can drink some gins or bubbly, have some cheese and wine, admire some art or perhaps even a massage at our mobile spa.
PLANET OR PLASTIC WITH NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
With TLM going green at the Winter Edition, we are looking forward to hosting National Geographic’s Planet or Plastic initiative at the Spring Edition and hope to educate people on how to change behaviour, reduce and ultimately eliminate single use plastic, as well as increase awareness around the plastic crisis. Come make your pledge at the Planet or Plastic pledge desk and receive a free Consol water bottle, if you produce proof of a ‘plastic-free alternative’ purchase on the day.
At 8:00 on market day, National Geographic and Consol together with TLM will be hosting a clean-up of the gardens. will be hosting a clean-up of the Botanical Gardens and surrounding area. All volunteers will receive free entry to the market, as well as a free Consol water bottle. Rubbish bags will be provided. All you need to do is bring your own gloves and meet at the ticketing gate, to become a TLM Clean Up Ambassador and make a difference in your community.
YOGA IN THE PARK
Also starting at 8:00 is Yoga in the Park. Bring your yoga mat and come breath in the fresh Spring air before you enjoy a delicious coffee and breakfast when the market opens at 9:00.
The old TLM favourite Date-a-Dog initiative brought to you by CLAW and Benji and Moon, will be moving to Classics in the Garden so that the pups can enjoy the classics and the art in a quieter, less stressful environment. As TLM is passionate about supporting local charities, this time around The Santa Shoebox Project will also be taking part in the market. It doesn’t have to be Christmas to make a difference in a child’s life. The Santa Shoebox Project is a charity organisation supporting less fortunate children across our country, with teams throughout the whole of SA.
SHOP LOCAL AT OVER 150 STALLS
With over 150 incredibly talented vendors (some old favourites and some exciting new ones), there definitely is something for everyone from incredible handmade jewellery to swimwear and sarongs, the cutest one-of-a-kind baby-grows, to authentic leather accessories and shoes. With spring in the air, we will also have beautiful flowers and plants, deliciously crisp and cold wine, bubbly and beer, as well as a range of delicious food that will make your mouth water.
SPRING ENTERTAINMENT LINEUP
The Linden Market is a place for friends and families to spend a day in the gardens, reconnect and have a good time. As always the lineup promises to entertain, showcasing some of the greatest talent in the South African Music scene. Jack & June will get you in the mood with their sweet melodies and the happy tunes of Bad Peter will surely get your feet moving. One of our absolute favorites and we are sure yours too – Georgetown will end the day off with a bang. While parents enjoy the entertainment, TLM always has some fun things to do for the kids like arts and crafts, face painting, jumping castle, bungee trampoline and much more.
Bring the whole family (including your furry friends as TLM is dog-friendly), and come celebrate Spring!
