Our upcoming events:

Dear Friends

To support our President’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 and in consideration of the health and safety of our Friends, we have taken the sad decision to postpone our events in April and May as indicated below:-

  • Supper Talk Thursday 23rd April:    Jan Smuts the Book Collector by Dr Kathy Munro postponed to August 20th.
  • Supper Talk Thursday 21st May :    Caring for the contents of the “Big House” : Annemarie Carlesen, Smuts House Museum Curator Postponed until further notice.
  • Sunday 24th May                     :    Smuts Memorial Service and 150th anniversary celebration at 14h30 postponed to September 13th (to be confirmed).


We do not usually hold Supper Talks in June or July because of the cold nights, however, by then most people will be in sore need of some social contact. We will put our heads together to see what we can suggest but any ideas for a social that does not have to be held at night (e.g. an outing or walk) would be much appreciated.

For those that have already paid for the April Supper Talk sincere apologies, especially to those that had transferred their payment for the cancelled March talk. As always we would like to suggest that you carry your payment forward to future event, but if anyone requires a refund please contact me with your bank details.

Once again apologies for the inconvenience and disappointment. These are challenging times but by supporting the social distancing measures laid down by the government we can hopefully be back to normal sooner rather than later.

Stay safe.

Kind regards

Valerie Webley
