First People Centre,  Galleries and studios - Bethesda Tower accommodation, restaurant and function venues, Karoo, Eastern Cape, South Africa.

The First People Centre is home to a group of artists of /Xam descent in the village of Nieu Bethesda. We invite visitors to our Centre to experience our friendly hospitality in welcoming accommodation and to explore our tapestries of Bushman mythology. Chat to us in the studios where we work and buy our stunning artwork and craft at very reasonable prices. 

Twenty Artists work together making tapestries, prints, stained glass and craft in a stunning environment with an open air theatre, restaurant and tourist accommodation.


Accommodation

The Tower is a fairytale building three stories high.  On the top floor is a huge round bed, covered with a 'love quilt' made at the project.  The middle room has twin beds, so Bethesda Tower is ideal for a couple wanting a romantic night, or an adventurous family wanting a completely unique experience.  There are wonderful views of the surrounding hills from the Tower balcony, and at night you can sit and sip your wine under the stars in the round stone courtyard, in privacy and complete safety.  

The Priory is named after the Priory in England where its stunning 1820 stained-glass windows came from. It sleeps a maximum of seven people, with the beds covered in quilts and the walls covered with artwork both made at the centre.  A beautiful stone courtyard with its own barbecue area offers privacy in a charming outdoor setting. Here you can gaze at the famous Bethesda night sky while you sip your wine. 


Dining

The Tower Restaurant for guests and visitors to the centre serves a wide variety of dishes including the famous Karoo Lamb and Curries. Vegetarian dishes are often made with vegetables we’ve grown ourselves. The cooks and waiters are also artists in the project.

Browse the exquisite bags, cushion covers, wall hangings, and prints made at the centre, or chat to the artists while you wait for a fine meal prepared from local produce in the Tower kitchen. 


Weddings & Parties

If the weather is fine and you would like a memorable venue, our round courtyard and surrounding buildings with their beautiful stained glass and gothic doors are perfect for weddings and parties. We can cater for up to 80 people. The round bed in the Tower makes an ideal settings for the wedding couple’s first married night!


Gallery & Art Centre

The Arts Centre has developed a model of working holistically with all its participants. Social issues in the community such as poverty, alcoholism and abuse are tackled through theatre and visual arts and engage the wider community.

Sometimes people imagine that Bushman Art is only cave paintings made hundreds and sometimes thousands of years ago.

We are living artists in the contemporary world expressing our culture and mythology through a number of different media including print making, stained glass, sculpture and textiles.

Our giant myth tapestries are on permanent exhibition at the First People Centre in Nieu Bethesda. We also have prints, cushion covers, and other art work for sale. Our lead artist, Sandra Sweers, heads the collective in making tapestries... Visit our website for more information on our Art projects.


Festival of Lights

Every year on New Year’s Eve, people gather from far and wide to take part in a spectacular lantern festival. It begins with a performance in the Centre’s Courtyard Theatre, winds through the township and returns to the Centre where there is dancing and feasting.

You can make your own lantern at one of our workshops, or we will make one for you. Contact us for further details and to book tickets.

Our aim is to improve lives of some of the most needy people in South Africa. If you love the work that we are doing and would like to support us please consider staying in our accommodation and buying some of our artwork ...
