FUNCTIONS & WHAT’S HAPPENING AT KELVIN GROVE
We are missing the hustle and bustle of regular functions at the club and within the Functions Department, but this time has certainly given us an opportunity to take a step back and reflect on what makes functions at Kelvin Grove so special.
We are reminded daily, that may we never again take for granted time spent gathering and celebrating with family, friends and colleagues – Family gatherings, birthday celebrations, weddings and anniversary celebrations, company celebrations and many others – everything around us is so temporary and we need to celebrate as many special moments as we can in one lifetime.
We would like to remind you of a few of our other offerings including a bit about what we are currently working on during this time taking social distancing in consideration:

Club Events at Kelvin Grove
Kelvin Grove hosts a range of Club Events. From book launches and workshops to kids’ events and festivals, we are constantly working on new ideas and events, to keep our members and guests enticed and excited.
We have also made booking for Club Events a little easier, which can now be done through our website. We look forward to seeing you and for your support at our upcoming events once the club is able to host events again!
With our recently launched #KGCares initiative, we have joined hands with the community, businesses, artists, and our suppliers to provide support and spread the word about their brand. We feature these businesses in our weekly mailers. Look out for the date of our next market – we hope to see all those who we have joined hands with there!
Our most exciting project within in the #KGCares Initiative, is our Knitting and Crochet Club. We have chosen to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s life this year, through donating knitted and crocheted blankets to Ubuntu House – a registered Child and Youth Care Centre, providing a place of safety for babies from birth to two years, who have been abandoned, orphaned, neglected or born out of an unplanned and crisis pregnancy.
We are currently busy planning a few exciting festivals for the year. These include a Gin Festival, Bubbly Festival, and our annual favourite festival of the year – our Beer, Wine and Cheese Festival. We will provide dates and more information on these festivals once we are able too.
