JanHarm Vorster unplugged himself from a career as an accountant (and some might say reality) and returned as his alter ego, Jan Harmsgat. He tends to the Agterplaas - a garden-theatre-restaurant and cottage antique shop in the town of Cullinan.
Wacky and whimsical, artist and entrepreneur, Jan is the ‘Wizard of Odd’. To meet him you’ll have to get past the full-metal drag queens that tower over the entrance to the Agterplaas. Word on the street is that these junkyard supermodels, made from rusted and recycled metal, can be bought with a couple of Q20 shooters.
Don’t be fooled by the venue’s quirky exterior that looks like the aftermath of a mad bull in a china shop with its recycled junk décor. Some of the country’s best cross-cultural performers rock this barnyard theatre, so book an elaborate picnic basket from JanHarm. Then get ready to let your hair down.
Everything JanHarm does is deliciously over the top. For a night in a room you’re unlikely to forget, check into Gastehys JanHarmsgat. For more of JanHarm’s unconventional magic, try the nearby Zau Spa. Or if your dream wedding is a Boere-baroque affair your guests will be talking about for ages, JanHarm is waiting to be your fairy godmother.
