Function Venue HireFunction Venue Hire at its Best at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria
If you are looking for function venue hire opportunities, consider the Monument Function Centre located at the world-famous Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria. The centre offers modern equipment, neat restrooms, safe parking, and the perfect location. But, what is the perfect location? The answer depends on the type of function you want to host. If it is a conference with various out-of-town attendees expected, it is a location close to main routes leading to and from airports such as being near the R21 leading to the O.R. Tambo International Airport. If it is Matric Farewell, then it means a central but safe location, such as a nature reserve with access control. If it is a year-end function, having a view of the city, various venues, and the possibility of being able to enjoy an outdoor event are perhaps important. The Monument Function Centre meets all the location requirements and more.
Why is Being Located at the Voortrekker Monument Beneficial?
We can offer venue hire options that range from amphitheatre settings to elegant spaces suitable for banquet-style functions. Whether you want a barbeque at the outdoor lapa, a tapas experience, country-style breakfast function in a garden setting, or a rustic, but tasteful event with historical scenery, we can cater to any type of function and size. But, being located at the Voortrekker Monument also gives you a landmark that is well-known, and is within a 340-ha nature reserve where you can see everything from wildebeest and porcupines, to zebra. With the location of the entire reserve being on a hill overlooking the city, there is simply no better venue in Pretoria for hire if you want a spectacular view as backdrop.
Various activities can be enjoyed in the reserve, ranging from cycling to horse riding, hiking, and bird watching. Cycle routes range in distances from under 3 to 10 km. The reserve is also connected to the Freedom Park, which is yet, another nearby attraction that can be visited by conference attendees and wedding or function guests during the day. The location within a nature reserve also means safety of the guests and their vehicles and the 4×4 enthusiasts will not be disappointed as a 14-km circular route is available, which is sure to test the stamina and driving abilities of the adventurous.
Of course, the Voortrekker Monument is the main attraction. It houses stunning artworks and depicts the struggles of the Voortrekker pioneers. With an on-site gift shop and additional museum, guests attending your conference will have lots to do during the break times.
