Now with over 90 strains of weed and The Serenity Room
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.

RULES & REGULATIONS FOR THE 2019 CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT CONCERT SERIES AT KIRSTENBOSCH
Parking is available at the Kirstenbosch Botanic Gardens’ designated parking areas as well as along Rhodes Drive.
For patrons who need to sit on chairs, please position yourselves along the footpaths or in such a way so as not to obstruct others’ view.
While patrons are allowed and even encouraged to bring along picnic baskets, PnP will also have a hospitality area where light snacks, cold drinks, tea, coffee and more will be available.
Do note that while alcohol is allowed in the park, patrons are urged to keep all bottles and containers concealed as this is a family event. Security will monitor this and act accordingly if needed.
Please keep in mind that the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is a UNESCO heritage site, and thus visitors are implored to take their rubbish home to dispose of it, as there are no bins on site.
