Valentine's picnic at Highwic

Valentines at Highwic

Bring a picnic and your loved one to soak up the romantic atmosphere in the beautiful gardens of the rambling Gothic mansion, situated on a rise above the contemporary shopping malls surrounding it.  There will be a cash bar and a band to provide the entertainment. 

Our Euro-Valentine’s Day band Nouvelle Voix, is the French version of popular VoxNova Gypsy jazz band founded by percussionist Alan MacDonald which performed a sold out concert at Alberton earlier this year. Accompanied by VoxNova violinist Marika Balzat and accordionist Tracey Collins from another of Alan’s bands, Zydecosis, the band will set the perfect tone for a romantic celebration of Valentine’s Day.
