Nieu Bethesda is a magical place for a romantic wedding and the ideal place to host a conference with a difference or a reunion with old friends.
Your event can be held either in the Old Church Hall or the Little Theatre or both. Both are charming venues, well-suited to any type of events. The Old Church Hall has a well-equipped kitchen for mass catering.
The town can host an event with 120 delegates or guests. We will also do the catering, serving delicious meals and tea-time treats. Local ingredients, especially Karoo lamb will feature on the menu, and we can also serve tasty food for vegetarians.
There is no shortage of things for visitors to do in the time between activities. We can also arrange that visitors go on workshops with resident crafters, like Freddy who teaches people how to make goggas out of tin and wire. And the adults would find this fun too.
Delegates or guests will be accommodated in several places around the village. Because the village is so small, there is no need for anyone to drive anywhere – they can walk to where they need to be. At the same time, people get a sense of privacy and space because they’re spread around the village instead of all staying in one place. Accommodation options vary from small and cosy to bigger places able to sleep big groups of ten or more.
Nieu Bethesda has seen a few weddings, but our real achievement was hosting the 2008 Youth and Adventure Travel Conference, which saw over 120 delegates and speakers, including big names like Cheryl Carolus visit Nieu Bethesda. Click here to read more…
