The Cowhouse is an outdoor retail space promoting cuisine, arts, crafts and design. The venue is set in the heart of the Hazeldean Valley is an old dairy farm that is now a unique gathering spot for people from all walks of life to meet, be inspired and share ideas whilst enjoying an unique farm-feel setting. It is a place for people that are passionate about what they do themselves and the whole idea of manufacturing the art in their space & selling it in their space.
The Motherland – is an indie/folk rock band from South Africa, with a unique sound that is a captivating blend of space, serene vocals, beautiful guitar riffs and a driving rhythm section.
Jerry and The Bandits – is an local indie band that insist on laying all their energy on stage, as well as making sure the crowd has a memorable time, as the audience is the main driving factor behind the band. Their sound is a unique blend of blues, jazz, alternative and indie rock.
I, The Delicate – is an acoustic duo comprised of an existential groove slayer & a sarcastic daydreamer exploring Astrophe & Opia one song at a time.
Whether it is beer, food or music, each is considered a unique Craft; an activity that involves skill in making things by hand. We aim to provide these chefs, brewers, and musicians with a platform to showcase their skill in a relaxed, friendly and profitable environment, whilst ultimately attract locals to this charming new development.
