Join in the merrymaking when the annual Cape Town Carols by Candlelight concert sounds off at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens this festive season in Cape Town. The Christmas-themed sing-along takes place from Thursday, December 15 to Sunday, December 18 2016.
Following two decades of annual shows, 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 show’s main attractions are the Cape Town Concert Brass and Male Voice Choir, who will perform traditional Christmas tunes and carols from approximately 8pm until 9:30pm.
A firm favourite on the festive calendar, 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 to also take in the century-old beauty of the Cape’s historical botanical gardens.
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 (don’t forget to tag @CapeTownMag when you post a picture on Instagram).
