CAROLS AT KIRSTENBOSCH in Kirstenbosch Gardens




Carols At Kirstenbosch - Event Dates for 2018 are:      13, 14, 15, 16 December 2018


Think of a beautiful garden setting, in glow stick light and the melodious sound of Christmas Carols and you will have an inkling of how fabulously festive Carols at Kirstenbosch will be this year. Your family and friends must plan to attend this event in December 2018. Book online from November 2018 on 



Nothing says it’s the Festive Season quite like Christmas carols do, and this year the hugely popular Cape Town Carols at Kirstenbosch promise to be the most festive yet, as the event celebrates its 30th anniversary. The event is proudly hosted by the Rotary Club of Kirstenbosch and sponsored by Pick n Pay, and as always, visitors can expect their favourite festive singalongs, deliciously festive food and thousands of glowsticks lighting up the evening sky.




For the first time this year, there will be an extra dose of yuletide spirit, thanks to the addition of pop-up Christmas themed-stalls. Visitors can browse the very best of Pick n Pay’s 2018 Christmas range, including everything from fun, festive headgear and stockings; to stockings-fillers, tree decorations and more. But be sure to get there early – stalls open at 6pm and close when carols start at 7.45pm.




This is the time of year you should be relaxing and enjoying yourself, and Pick n Pay is offering to take the hassle out for you, so all you need do is arrive with your picnic blanket! We’ve got the rest sorted. Pre-order a perfect picnic for two, comprising a selection of sumptuous delights and we’ll present it to you in a PnP bag to be collected from the PnP food stand at Entrance 3 – what could be easier? There’s also a special picnic just for littlies.




If you’d rather decide what to eat on the day, the PnP food truck will be serving up a yummy range of options to tuck into, but be warned, come hungry for these! On the menu are king-size burgers, festive gammon rolls, and as a veggie option, a tasty mushroom and brie burger with cranberry sauce.




There will be two coffee stations at the venue serving a selection of coffees and hot beverages, in addition to hot dogs, mince pies, cupcakes, crisps and chocolates, mini candy canes, biltong, doughnuts and water.




Please note that wine will NOT be on sale at the event, but visitors are welcome to bring their own.




Carols are led by Cape Town Concert Brass and the Cape Town Male Voice Choir
