Flick the festive-season switch with Siya Kolisi and Boity Thulo at the Golden Tree Lighting experience in the Waterfront’s design district.

Christmas is on its way, and there’s hardly a better way to ring in the festive season than a tree-lighting ceremony – particularly when said tree is not your run-of-the-mill Norfolk pine, but rather a one-of-a-kind showstopper! Made from over 2 000 recycled Champagne bottles, the four-storey-high tree is just that! Adorned with a shimmering gold ribbon and dazzling LED lights that are individually programmed to light up in time to the music, the tree features an awe-inspiring lighting display.

Unveiling the lights

Moet Christmas Tree

This year Moët & Chandon will unveil this impressive creation at the official lighting ceremony, hosted by Springbok captain Siya Kolisi and TV personality Boity Thulo on Friday the 29 November. In addition, there’ll be performances by internationally revered opera singers Given Nkosi and Magdalene Minnaar (who performed at the FIFA 2010 World Cup), The Cape Town Youth Choir and various dancers, making for an unforgettable evening.

What’s more, shops will stay open until 8pm! So visitors will be able to partake in some Christmas shopping on the evening, as well as delicious Moët & Chandon festive specials at participating restaurants in the Silo District.

And, if you happen to miss the lighting ceremony, there will be other Festive Friday tree-lighting experiences throughout December (on 6, 13 and 20 December 2019 at 8.30pm). The tree will be positioned in the Silo district until 6 January 2020.

Come and join in the spirit of sharing, and raise a glass to a joyous Christmas!

Insider info There will be Moët & Chandon minis available for purchase at dedicated bars around the tree.
