The 1879 Group

Isandlwana & Rorke's Drift.

Our Diary

Each year The 1879 Group attend various events throughout the country.

As a result of COVID-19 the future of the events listed is currently uncertain. Updates to the current situation regarding events we are involved in will be posted here as soon as we are notified about changes. Please check with event organisers before travelling to the events listed to ensure they are still taking place.


Annual Rorke's Drift Dinner
The 2021 Rourke's Drift Dinner has been cancelled. After consulting with The Metropole Hotel it appears unlikely the event would be able to proceed. There may be a possibility of re-arranging the event for later in the year.

Future Events
Due to restrictions currently in place there have been no bookings made for future events.

As the situation develops please refer back to this page to discover where The 1879 Group will be appearing.

Events marked as "Confirmed" have not been cancelled by the orgainisers at this point, but the situation may change in the coming days. Please check back for the current situation.
