Make sure to get your tickets to the Spar/702 Mother's Day Concert at the Zoo, and treat mum to a music-filled day out.

MOTHER'S Day is a great opportunity to tell your mum how much you appreciate her; so this year, make her breakfast, and then get cracking on a picnic lunch for her to enjoy at the Spar/702 Mother's Day Concert at the Zoo.

The lush lawns and crisp early winter weather are ideal for a picnic, taking the lunch load off mum's shoulders for the day, and treating her to all her music favourites at the Zoo's bandstand.

This year's concert features Idols 2010 winner, Elvis Blue; 2004 Coca-Cola Popstars Jamali; and the Johannesburg Chamber Orchestra, with conductor Kutlwano Masote.

Each year performers belt out old-time music hits, accompanied by the orchestra, with concert-goers singing along and dancing.

There's also plenty of entertainment for the kids, who can explore the natural wonders of the world at the Zoo's world-class exhibitions, or burn off some energy in the supervised play area.

This year, the Mother's Day concert is on 11 May, and kicks off at 8:30am, continuing until 3pm. Tickets are available from Webtickets at R75 for adults and R45 for pensioners and children under 12.

Get your tickets now and treat mum to a brilliant, sun- and fun-filled day out!
