Voortrekker Monument Function Rooms

The Voortrekker Monument, a unique South African heritage treasure, serves as an ideal venue for exclusive classical music performances and choral performances.

The Hall of Heroes with its historical marble frieze can accommodate up to 600 persons and is equipped with a digital Allen organ with 22 stops. The acoustic quality within the Hall of Heroes is very good in comparison with European cathedrals and has a 6 second reverberation.

The second level in the Monument, known as the Cenotaph Hall, can accommodate up to 900 persons and because of its spiritual sensitivity it is especially suited for activities of a more subdued nature. The Cenotaph Hall can also be used to host selected art exhibitions.

With its architecture and acoustics, the Monument can also be used as a distinctive venue for wedding ceremonies.
