House of Afrika & are thrilled to present the first 2018 edition of ‘The Big BBQ Social’

Round up the whole family (fur-babies included) for a day of fun in the sun on Friday, April 27th as the sweet smoky smell of BBQ fills the air at The Secret Garden, Jumeirah Creekside Hotel (next to the Irish village).

Whether you like your pork pulled or your meat rubbed, everyone is welcome to fire up his or her own style of BBQ at one of the communal wood and charcoal BBQ stations setup on the green grass. There will be a gourmet butcher on site for supplies, and a designated non-pork area to grill. Guests are welcome to bring their own meat or purchase it from N&R Butchery on the day and cook up a storm. For those who’d rather just chill, there will also be a menu available that has been cooked by the specialists.

Kids will have their plates full with plenty of games, arts & crafts, and live entertainment to keep them busy throughout the day. Parents can leave their Mini Grill Masters in the safety of the onsite nursery to take a break, and enjoy a cold beverage at this fully licensed event.

Pets will be in Doggo Heaven playing by your picnic blanket or left to make new fur-riends in the supervised doggie Play Zone. Animal lovers and children are welcome to play with the cute puppers looking for a “Furever home” in the Rescue Zone. There will also be a Pamper Zone where you can reward your little floofers (good boys only).

South African live electronic band GOODLUCK, the brain child of Juliet Harding (lyricist and vocalist), Raiven Hansmann (keys and sax) and Ben Peters (producer and sampling), are set to get everyone on their feet with their infectious beats. The trio’s irresistible blend of electronica, jazz and pop have earned them nine top 10 radio singles, five Number 1 hits, five SAMA [South African Music Award] nominations and the opening act for Pharrell Williams, as a part of his world tour. The trailblazers use unique and abstract environmental samples (e.g. zebras, the ocean and the Fish River Canyon) that will take you on a journey and provide the perfect soundtrack for this event.
