Entrance Fee @ Voortrekker Monument




We have nearly completed our beautiful new multi-cultural educational centre. We are aiming to host the official opening in June. The name will be Funda Lapa. Funda is from the Latin word meaning foundation and also the Zulu word for learning. Lapa means meeting place.


The VTM Running and Walking Club have decided to launch an new annual race on site to celebrate the 80th commemoration of the laying of the cornerstone of the Monument this year. At the first race, participants will win this exceptional medal.

The race will take place on Saturday, 24 November with a 5km, 10km and half marathon race. We will publish entry details at a later date.



Remember our Military Fair on 1 May from 09:00 to 15:00. The fair is now officially the biggest in the country. This year we have the full support of the Chief of the Army and more vehicles etc. will be on display. The drill platoon from 4 Artillery Regiment in Porchefstroom will open the arena program. The guys from Group73 will once again provide an exceptional helicopter demonstration.

Ugly Cry Night @ The Bioscope

Ugly Cry Night: Homeward Bound

Fri. May 18, 2018 at 8:00pm

There is nothing more cathartic than a good cry. Ugly Cry Night is a new signature event here is at The Bioscope, celebrating the films that have the power to move us. Nothing brings a friendship or loving relationship closer than a shared sobbing. Your R60 ticket includes a 125ml tub of Paul's Homemade ice cream, as well as a pocket pack of tissues.


Directed by: Duwayne Dunham / Adventure, Comedy, Drama - 1h 24min

Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, Disney's 1993 remake of the 1963 hit The Incredible Journey, follows three household pets as they travel across mountains and plains on their way to find their owners. A misunderstanding leads the animals to mistakenly believe that they have been abandoned by their loved ones, when in reality they have been left in the care of a friend while the family has moved from the country to the city for the father to take a temporary assignment.
