Some may not know but local Ramsgate residents and business owners Bill & Gail Ross-Adams also own the charming and historic Green Lantern Inn in Van Reenan. They, together with local actress and Bosman storyteller, Barbie Meyer (who can be found in the delightful mix of artists at Artists’ Gallery in Ramsgate) have conjured up an amazing night away. The overnight stay will include hilarious storytelling, good food, gorgeous old world accommodation and scrumptious breakfast at the Inn. Van Reenen is a languid four hour drive from Ramsgate. Barbie will perform her entertaining one-woman, Herman Charles Bosman shows entitled “Bosman’s Veld Maiden”. The show is all in English.
