In 1958 a small group of New Zealander’s living in London formed the London Māori Club and through the performance of traditional waiata and haka, the group promoted the uniqueness of Māori.
Ngāti Rānana London Māori Club aims to provide New Zealanders residing in the United Kingdom and others interested in Māori culture an environment to teach, learn and participate in Māori culture. The three guiding principles of Ngāti Rānana are whanaungatanga (togetherness), manaakitanga (looking after one another/hospitality) and kōtahitanga (unity).
As well as club nights and performances, Ngāti Rānana holds weekend wananga (extended training/ learning sessions) and various social events for members throughout the year.
We meet every Wednesday night at 6.30pm at New Zealand House and always welcome new members and guests who want to learn or engage with the Māori culture.
