The next HASA Symposium will be held from 12-14 October 2023. The venue will be Kedar Heritage Lodge located on the Boekenhoutfontein farm, about 20 kms from Rustenburg and an hour’s drive from Pretoria. It’s going to be a brilliant heritage event.

The full three-day event will comprise talks, the HASA AGM, excursions, the gala dinner and HASA awards. It is a great opportunity to socialise with fellow heritage enthusiasts. Here is the opportunity to explore the rich heritage of Kedar and the Kruger family farmhouses, one of the finest private museums of Anglo Boer War memorabilia, the heritage heroes created by the late Robert Forsyth in his collection sculptures – Smuts, Rhodes, Gandhi, Churchill, de la Rey and many more.

We are planning an enriching heritage programme, including learning about platinum history with a mine and an historical tour of Rustenburg. We shall learn about life and times of Mzilikazi, engage the experiences and history of the Royal Bafokeng people, explore geological sites, dip into Lutheran church history and learn about the Anglo Boer War in this area. A game drive through the Kedar bushveld estate is an optional choice. There will be a guided visit to the Kruger family farmhouses.



Speakers will present talks in the morning and outings will take place in the afternoons. Download the draft programme below:
