Oude Libertas Centre - “Where Cultures inspires Creativity”

“In my own philanthropy and business endeavours, I have seen the critical role that the arts play in stimulating creativity and in developing vital communities… the arts have a crucial impact on our economy and are an important catalyst for learning, discovery, and achievement in our country.” - Paul G. Allen, Co-Founder, Microsoft

Situated in Stellenbosch on the slopes of the Papegaaiberg, surrounded by vineyards and oak trees, the Oude Libertas offers the visitor a collection of artistic, theatre and lifestyle experiences as well as a vital insight into community and environmental development initiatives.

It annually hosts a Summer Season programme at the ever popular Oude Libertas open-air Amphitheatre under the stars, regular art exhibitions at the art gallery and the Slow market on Saturdays between 9:00 – 14:00.

Furthermore, it is the home of the Distell Foundation the umbrella body for Distell’s corporate social investment activities.
