Laingsburg Tourism AGM
Matjiesfontein provides a unique setting for any occasion.
We recently hosted the Laingsburg Tourism AGM in our the Transport Museum. We enjoyed welcoming Special Guest Speaker Dr Ivan Meyer, the Western Cape Minister of Finance.
Matjiesfontein provides a unique setting for any occasion: from team building events to music festivals!
Think also weddings and family celebrations, as well as business seminars or workshops conducted in our quiet, historic lounges, the Court House or Transport Museum.
The old Court House was built in 1897. It was here in 1901 that the high-profile trial and conviction of the captured boer hero General Gideon Scheepers played out. The venue, with its panelled walls and raised stage for seating of the judiciary, provides a historic backdrop for a small party or seminar with seating for around 60 guests dependant on seating arrangements.
- The Transport Museum features old vintage cars, trains and bicycles within a private garden and courtyard setting. The main car hall can accommodate large corporate functions, wedding receptions and large family celebrations in its spacious double-storey interior.
- The Railway Station Conference Room is located at the Working Station, and is ideal for a seminar with seating for around 60 guests depending on seating arrangements.
