Christmas Carol Singalong At Kirstenbosch

Tis the season for carols...

The hugely popular, and now over 20-year-old annual event, Carols by Candlelight at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens is on from Thursday 12, Friday 13, Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 December 2019.


EXPLORE BEFORE THE SINGALONG
This four-night concert series is the flagship project of the Rotary Club of Kirstenbosch and forms part of the organisation’s annual fundraising efforts. While each evening boasts a line-up of well-known local acts as pre-entertainment from 5:30pm, the gates only open at 6pm for the carols session. However, if you have tickets you will be allowed to enter and visit other sites in the gardens. The show’s main attractions are the Cape Town Concert Brass and Male Voice Choir, who will perform traditional Christmas carols from approximately 7:45pm until 9:30pm.

The Carols by Candlelight concert sessions are perfect for all ages and afford both visitors and locals an opportunity to not only get into the spirit of Christmas but also take in the century-old beauty of the Cape’s historic botanical gardens.

COME EARLY TO GET A SPOT
Patrons are encouraged to make the most of this occasion and get to the gardens early to pick a prime spot, enjoy a picnic dinner and take in Cape Town’s legendary summer sunsets. Book a picnic basket for R275 which includes a baguette, cheeses, pates, brownies and more. You can get your picnic basket with a bottle of wine for R310.

Kids can get a picnic basket for one which includes a juice, PnP puffs, Christmas choc-mallow and a hot dog voucher to use at the food stalls on the day. Plus there'll be other foods such as burgers, gammon rolls and mince pies for sale.
