Jazz on the Lawn By now, our annual Jazz on the Lawn event has become a bit of an institution, with this being the third year where we invite you to bring a picnic and listen to light jazz.

Experience the magic of Irma Stern's park-like Secret Garden in the most relaxing way – with families and friends, surrounded by nature and uplifting music.
