The North Durban Lions Music and Market Day had been rescheduled for 24 September – but unfortunately it will not be possible to provide most of the entertainment which was planned for the day. The club has rather postponed the day to a later date, yet to be decided on – either around Christmas or relatively early in the new year.
The club would like thank everyone who was planning to come along to the day and support the club in its efforts to raise funds to assist those in need. Its unfortunate that we’ve had to postpone the day again, but the circumstances make it unavoidable.
The new date will of course be published and advertised once it is decided.
Due to Thursday’s heavy rains, the North Durban Lions club has had to postpone the Music and Market Day event. More details will be provided soon.
Please note that this event has been postponed due to waterlogged grounds following the heavy rains on Thursday 8 August.
The North Durban Lions will once again be presenting their Music and Market Day on Women’s Day, at the Golden Hours market grounds.

There will also be an MC and singer providing entertainment between the various musical acts. A variety of food and market stalls will be available, including tea and beer gardens under the shady trees. Community services such as diabetes testing and the SA National Blood Service will also be on hand. There will be a playground to keep the kids entertained, with popcorn, candyfloss and the club’s ever-popular tractor rides on sale. Plenty of secure parking will be available. All proceeds raised will be used for Lions projects and to benefit the Golden Hours school for special needs children.

The North Durban Lions 2011 Christmas Concert (mentioned previously here) was a fantastic success. More than 350 adults and more than 75 children came along on the evening of Friday 16 December, leading to a terrific atmosphere. Many people came much earlier than the 18:00 start, in order to get a good seat, as they knew the event would be popular.
Lenny Bowes entertained the crowd, performing great classics and really setting a festive mood.
The Durban City Orchestra then played a magnificent set, including a variety of Christmas favorites and medleys – the entire crowd was rapt with attention during the performance.
In addition, there were a variety of market and food stalls selling a large range of terrific items.
The North Durban Lions club would like to thank each and every member of the public who came along and made it a great night. We would also like to express our deepest gratitude to the Pick n Pay Hyper-by-the-Sea, whose generous financial support enabled the event to be organised in the first.
The evening’s profits will be used to directly aid children’s projects and those for the elderly.
Thank you again to everyone who came and who contributed to making the concert and evening such a success – we’ll see you next year!
