Before we know it the year is half way and Youngblood is as busy as always.
We have had a run of very successful events.
Last year CODA performed at Youngblood and it was so well received that they performed again early this year in March. Guests enjoyed a seated 3 course meal with electro jazz. April started off with a performance by Thandi Ntuli’s auditorium style jazz – very relaxed and laid back.
Yuliya Purkiss exhibited her work at Youngblood in collaboration with her husband Farryl Purkiss on the 23rd of April. The event included an auction to raise funds for one of their friends. ‘The jessgetwellsoon foundation’ and Farryl Purkiss also performed introducing his new album, Home.
We started May with an Ethiopian experience and a photography exhibition of Friederike von Stackelberg. Ethiopian coffee smells were dwelling through the entire space and Little Ethiopia collaborated with Beautifull food and cooked up true Ethiopian specialities.
End of May we had the Italian Chair District exhibiting new brands and ranges. The various companies are part of a family businesses that has continued through generations.
We officially kick-started the winter with the First Thursday Initiative and a performance by the Gareth Smit Project. Everybody was mesmerised by Gareth Smit’s compositions and the musicians’ dedication to their music was clearly visible in this well attended and enjoyed performance. They will definitely be playing here in the future, we will keep you updated!
Beautifull Food is cooking up a storm as usual and Clara’s potato gnocchi and signature pies and quiches are still favourites. She is currently dishing up winter warmers such as curries, mousaka, pastas and delicious soups.
Clients are now also able to bring a dish and she can fill it up for you and you can enjoy Beautifull food in the comfort of your own home. For more information contact Beautifull Food on 021 424 1960.
