There’s only one place to be this Christmas and New Year – out on tour with the Barmy Army. Everyone knows that.

More specifically, though, this year we’re providing you with two fantastic opportunities to attend our incredible events. We would encourage anyone joining us out in South Africa to treat themselves to a night (or two!) at our chosen venues as we bid farewell to 2019. Tickets are NOW AVAILABLE

Christmas Day

Where Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square meet, you’ll find glamorous shops, top fashion outlets, and a whole host of incredible dining options. As the largest retail complex in South Africa, Nelson Mandela Square combines big-city sophistication with European style right underneath the African sun. As the latest addition to this iconic square, Hard Rock Cafe Johannesburg is the perfect place to eat, drink, and unwind in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Let’s celebrate Christmas together in a very special setting.

The Hard Rock Cafe Johannesburg brings together the eclectic style of rock n’ roll with imported designer features; marvel at the polished marble bar and get lost in the floating constellation of more than 7,000 drumsticks. Later, after a day spent enjoying beautiful South Africa, come in for one of our hand-crafted cocktails or delicious signature entrées. Let the pulse of the city inspire you as you sip an ice cold cocktail and enjoy the finest American cuisine.

New Year’s Eve

Kapstadt Brauhaus, the venue for our 25 Year Anniversary New Year’s Eve function and official HQ for the duration of the Cape Town Test could not be any better. Situated at the famous Clock Tower and Clock Tower Bridge, this exclusive waterside venue will provide one of the finest views of Cape Town’s NYE fireworks display. With premiums at their absolute highest at the V&A Waterfront for NYE functions (between R2500 and R4000pp – that's £135 to over £200 at today's exchange rate), we have successfully secured a Barmy Army NYE venue in the most prime location on the V&A Waterfront at only £95pp (R1765). This includes 3 drinks vouchers and dinner as well as entertainment and a front-row seat to South Africa’s greatest NYE fireworks spectacle.

There will be delicious food and pop-up performances of all kinds in all of the venue’s main areas throughout the night. Whether you’re in Nobel Square, the Amphitheatre, or Silo Courtyard, there will be non-stop entertainment and stunning visuals for you to enjoy all night long. The venue is located on the waterfront, right next to Cape Town’s Clock Tower Bridge; the image below provides shows exactly what sort of view you’ll be able to enjoy as the fireworks bring in the new year. Come and join us!

Tickets for this incredible event are now on sale. We’re expecting a fast sell out, so be sure to grab yours early to avoid disappointment!
