Event Organiser: Val Hotel

Event Info

Goody bag with ticket purchased at R50, will contain an enamel plate, enamel mug, wooden knife, fork, and spoon The event has been inspired by an event which occurred during the Anglo-Boer War. On 29 December 1900, a freight train, laden with good cheer for the officers of the British Army, was derailed by Jack and Gert van der Heever near Val Station. Both sides made good use of the whisky, beer, and delicacies spilled from the derailed trucks. The state of war was forgotten for a while. There were no casualties during this incident.
